Muharraq, Bahrain – MENA Aerospace Enterprises WLL has long been synonymous with private jets and business aviation services, and it is now experiencing a post-pandemic resurgence in those business lines, thanks to a new partnership with the European Group SPARFELL.

The agreement encompasses aircraft and passenger handling supervision services, aircraft hangarage, charter services, and more.

Through its various divisions, the MENA Aerospace Enterprises Group is positioned to provide private general aviation hangar space, spare parts and consumables, frontline service, third party ground handling, flight supervision, dispatch, and pilots.

Bernhard Wipfler, Managing Director of SPARFELL, says: “We at SPARFELL are immensely proud of our ongoing and fruitful partnership with MENA in Bahrain.”

“The Middle Eastern markets are increasingly significant in global private aviation terms. Our priority is to put our clients’ needs and wants first in everything we do, and through this partnership we are assured that our extremely high standards are being seamlessly met throughout our network.”

Since the cooperation began earlier this year, MENA Aerospace Enterprises has witnessed a 30% jump in passenger handling for private jets at Bahrain International Airport.

Dr. Mohamed Juman, MENA Aerospace Enterprise’s Founder and Managing Director, explains: “We have adapted our model to reflect shifting customer preferences. Previously, we acted as an AOC for business jets in Bahrain, serving the local region. Our new partnership with SPARFELL allows us to change the game.”

“We have observed an emerging preference for European AOC’s. Among the clients whose aircraft we host, there has been a dramatic decline in the number of individuals who want their AOC based in the Middle East. SPARFELL will be hosting the aircraft in Austria, while we take care of everything in this region.”

“Meanwhile, we are pursuing an AOC that allows us to fly within Saudi Arabia, so we may move charters around that market.”

“We also encourage everyone to watch this space, as we have big expansion goals for our private jet business in 2022.”
