Germany’s DC Aviation and the UAE’s Al-Futtaim, called DCAF, have completed a purpose-built integrated hangar facility with lounge and office areas at Dubai World Central.
From this location, which includes a 5,700 square metre hangar and a 1,300 square metres plush lounge area designed to host VVIP customers, DCAF will be providing aircraft management, fixed-base operations (FBO), aircraft maintenance services and business jet chartering to local, regional and international clients.
The facility includes three large passenger lounges offering high levels of comfort and privacy, shower areas, a roomy conference room, ample covered parking and boasts exquisite 5-star finishing.
Customers will benefit from a dedicated ramp parking area spanning 7,700 square metres, on-site security processing facilities and minimal distance between drop-off and the aircraft steps.
Under its Aircraft Management division, DCAF will help business jet owners optimise their aircraft assets, offering, among others, substantial cost saving potential on insurance, fuel purchasing and crew deployment.
DCAF's business jet charter clients will benefit from the operator's fleet size and variety ranging from efficiently sized Learjet 40 to the 46-seater Airbus ACJ319 and a 24/7 operation designed to provide immediate response to requests.
DWC is set to be a major business aviation hub for Dubai next year as the closure of one of Dubai International’s two runways will see business and general aviation traffic moving to the new airport near Jebel Ali.
