Jetex sets world record for giant football
A giant installation at the Jetex terminal in Dubai has been validated by Guinness World Records as the world's largest fibreglass sculpture of a supported sphere that resembles a giant football.
Jetex achieves a Guinness World Records title in celebration of football’s greatest show on Earth.

Jetex has set a new Guinness World Records title at its private terminal at Al Maktoum International airport in Dubai, where it unveiled the world's largest fibreglass sculpture of a supported sphere that resembles a giant football.

The flagship Jetex VIP terminal is buzzing with fans from all over the globe who are using a match day private jet shuttle service between Dubai and Doha. Seen from afar, the iconic 10 metre high football structure welcomes international travellers as they drive up to the terminal.

“Together with fans from all over the world, we share the excitement and thrill of football. Over the past months, we witnessed tremendous demand for private jet travel between Dubai and Doha, which prompted us to go above and beyond to ensure that all fans enjoy a spectacular football-themed travel experience that starts well in advance of the actual game,” says founder and CEO Adel Mardini.

The VIP terminal also houses a pop-up football field right in the heart of the terminal, where all travellers can practise their skills and create memories with their families and friends. Customer experience has also been adjusted with football fans in mind; Jetex brand ambassadors are wearing distinctive football uniforms and surprising travellers with football-inspired souvenirs.

The record was validated by Guinness World Records officials at the Jetex VIP terminal in Dubai.

The giant football installation will remain at Jetex's VIP terminal until late December. After that, it will be either presented to one of the local football clubs or sustainably recycled.
