Jetex opens first VIP terminal in north Africa
African business aviation has been witnessing phenomenal growth, and Jetex has opened a VIP terminal at Marrakesh Menara airport.
Jetex celebrated the event with a gala reception at the new facility.

Jetex has opened its latest VIP terminal at Marrakesh Menara airport. The company first established its presence in Morocco as an FBO in 2016, and has since opened facilities in Casablanca, Agadir and Rabat. It now has a total of 16 African locations, including six FBOs.

Each year, Morocco sees more than 10,000 private jet movements, making it one of the most important markets in Africa, while the Middle East and north African region is expected to see around 175,000 business aircraft movements in 2020.

“We anticipate private aviation in Africa to continue its rapid growth. We want Jetex to help usher in that growth and better serve the market's increasing needs. It is an honour for us to establish the first VIP terminal of its kind in north Africa, and we are grateful for the ongoing support of the government of Morocco,” says founder and CEO Adel Mardini.

Furnished with designer pieces by Zaha Hadid, the modern 1,000 sqm facility has 25,000 sqm of aircraft parking and remains open 24/7.
