Empire Aviation Group has taken on two Falcon 900DX aircraft which will be based in Africa. It will officially launch them, as well as displaying its aircraft sales and management services, at the Dubai Air Show. Among these services is a smart app which allows owners to check the status of their aircraft and obtain flight, route and destination information.
It has been a promising year for the group. In 2013 EAG has added three aircraft to its managed fleet, sold three jets, and its team has grown to 120 staff. The fleet now spans the Middle East and Africa, and the recent additions will bolster the African wing. The company now has around 23 business jets under management across these regions, as well as in India.
Paras Dhamecha, executive director, says: “This Dubai Air Show will be a very special occasion when it is hosted for the first time at the new Dubai World Central airport. It comes at an exciting time for Empire Aviation Group and allows us to present our full portfolio of aviation services at the event, while entertaining owners, clients, partners and guests at our dedicated pavilion. This has been a very strong year for us in the Middle East.”
Dhamecha also highlights the importance of the Falcon additions in light of a demand for larger aircraft: “We brought the two Falcon 900s under management in September and October 2013 and they are very active, operating on European and African sectors.
“They reflect the trend among our managed fleet owners for large body aircraft and this is also driving our growth, as we expand to meet the requirements of operating these types of longer range business jets.”
