RoyalJet increases its presence in UAE by expanding into Dubai

The expansion coincides with the rescheduled start of Expo 2020 in Dubai.

RoyalJet Group has increased its presence in the UAE by adding Al Maktoum International airport in Dubai as an operating base. This is in addition to its existing operational bases at Abu Dhabi International airport and Al Bateen International airport.

Rob DiCastri, RoyalJet CEO, says: “Despite this challenging ongoing pandemic, Dubai has found a way to grow private jet traffic into and out of this beautiful city, flying in the face of the trend that has been seen outside only the US and maybe Europe.”

Al Maktoum is near Expo 2020, a six-month long exhibition originally scheduled for 20 October 2020 to 10 April 2021 and now taking place until 31 March 2022, which contributed to the decision to use the airport: “If ever there was a right time for RoyalJet to bring its industry leading aircraft and services to Dubai it is now,” adds DiCastri. “We are ready to support the efforts made by our government to make this event a major success, bringing our expertise and our capacity to Al Maktoum International airport, which is so perfectly located near the Expo 2020 grounds.”
