Jetex signs with Falcon for Al Maktoum management
Open to all operators, corporates and private individuals, the flagship Jetex terminal at Al Maktoum is the first in the region to facilitate convenient helicopter charters between Dubai and Abu Dhabi inside 30 minutes.
Jetex sets itself exceptionally high standards for customer service.

Jetex is continuing to expand its presence at the flagship VIP terminal in Dubai, the largest purpose-built facility of its kind in the world. The company has signed an agreement with Falcon Aviation to manage its FBO and hangar at Al Maktoum International airport. This means that Jetex is now operating the world's largest private terminal in terms of VIP lounge space, which spans more than 32,000 sq ft.

The new passenger lounge will complement Jetex's existing facilities to meet the growing demand for private jet travel in the region. The organisation will lend its expertise to enhance the lounge to ensure that all customers enjoy the consistent service standards it is known for. Travellers will enjoy priority access to a range of extras, including dedicated spaces for those seeking privacy, en-suite bedrooms and a kids club.

Open to all operators, corporates and private individuals arriving with their business jets, it is the first in the region to facilitate quick and convenient helicopter charters between Dubai and Abu Dhabi inside 30 minutes.

Under the new agreement, Jetex will also manage Falcon Aviation's Code-F Plot hangar. The facility is one of the largest in the Middle East, and it is equipped to meet the growing demand for aircraft hangarage in Dubai. The air-conditioned hangar is located on a 258,000 sq ft plot with an additional apron space of 140,000 sq ft to handle and store aircraft safely, whether it is a long-term contract or a one night stay.

β€œI am pleased to sign the management agreement with Falcon Aviation, which will cement our position as a one-stop solution in the world of private aviation,” says Adel Mardini, founder and CEO of Jetex. β€œIt will allow international travellers to benefit from the enhanced passenger facilities at the Jetex VIP terminal. With the dedicated hangar in Dubai, we will also be able to provide world-class support to aircraft owners and operators. This is an important milestone in the Jetex story, and we look forward to announcing more international locations soon.”

With robust growth in private jet travel over the past months, Dubai is set to welcome even more international travellers in 2021 when the city is due to host the World Expo.
