Dubai, United Arab Emirates / February 14, 2013 – Jet Aviation Dubai recently opened a new FBO facility at Dubai World Central’s Al Maktoum International Airport. The company continues to provide MRO and FBO services at Dubai International Airport.
Jet Aviation was granted permission to permanently operate an FBO at Dubai World Central’s (DWC) Al Maktoum International Airport following its appointment as the dedicated ground handling service provider for the Middle East Business Aviation (MEBA) exhibition in December 2012. The company will continue to provide maintenance and FBO operations at Dubai International Airport, the other international airport in Dubai.
For passengers and crew members, Jet Aviation’s FBO at Al Maktoum International Airport provides 24/7 handling services such as immigration and customs support, crew transportation, hotel reservations and catering coordination.
