Dubai / Switzerland, July 18, 2014 – Jet Aviation Dubai will resume full operations from its maintenance facility and refurbished FBO at Dubai International Airport on July 21, 2014. In addition to the rebranding, the FBO now offers airside duty free shopping.
With runway construction nearing completion, Jet Aviation Dubai will resume full operations from its newly refurbished FBO at Dubai International Airport on July 21. The company took the opportunity to rebrand its FBO while the airport resurfaced its runway in order to integrate the new corporate look-and-feel initially launched at the Jet Aviation facilities in Geneva and Zurich last year. In response to strong customer demand for on-site duty free shopping, the Jet Aviation Dubai FBO now also includes an airside duty free shop.
Jet Aviation Dubai hosted an Iftar Soirée on Wednesday, July 9, 2014 to commemorate its refurbished FBO facility. Approximately 60 guests and delegates joined the FBO personnel to celebrate the company’s new-look-and-feel by breaking the fast during Ramadan that evening, together in elegant comfort.
“We strive to provide a positive customer experience by anticipating their needs and ensuring their utmost comfort,” says Hardy Bütschi, vice president and general manager at Jet Aviation Dubai. “Feedback regarding our rebranding efforts has been very positive and we look forward to welcoming our customers back to our facilities at Dubai International Airport.”
Runway construction will also be completed by July 21, 2014. Jet Aviation Dubai will then resume full maintenance and FBO operations at Dubai International Airport and continue providing FBO services from DWC.
