DC Aviation Al-Futtaim (DCAF), a joint venture between Dubai-based Al-Futtaim group and Germany's DC Aviation, is opening its second hangar at Al Maktoum International airport in Dubai.

The 7,500 sqm facility will more than double the operator's capacity, bringing its total landside plot area to 24,000 sqm and apron area to 13,000 sqm.

The latest hangar will enable DCAF to add two single-aisle aircraft maintenance bays and provide enough space for an additional workshop and equipment storage. It will also significantly increase the number and size of aircraft that can be accommodated at the facility.

MD Holger Ostheimer says: “We are excited to be opening our second hangar during the Dubai Airshow. Since commencing operations in November 2013, we have seen our business grow steadily year-on-year. With the new hangar, we will be able to meet the growing demand for business and private jet operations in the Aviation District at Dubai South for years to come.”

DCAF was the first business to establish operations at Al Maktoum and continues to be the airport's only VIP aircraft service provider, being in control of the sole hangar capacity.

Speaking of the Dubai Airshow, which takes place this month, Ostheimer says: “We look forward to showcasing our luxury services and VIP lounges, which offer access, discretion and privacy. We will be welcoming all visitors to our stand where the team will be on hand to discuss our services and offerings as well as to invite attendees to see our operations, which are in close proximity to the show ground.”

DCAF has a total of six aircraft on its managed fleet including two Global Express, three Challengers and a Falcon 7X. Its core areas of business include aircraft manage-ment, maintenance, FBO and ground handling as well as business jet charter and consultancy services.
