DC Aviation Al-Futtaim (DCAF), a UAE-based joint venture between Dubai-headquartered Al-Futtaim and German business jet operator DC Aviation, has expanded its fleet under management with the addition of two aircraft, a Bombardier Global 6000 and Global 5000. DCAF will operate the new aircraft on behalf of the private owners.

The addition of these aircraft brings DCAF’s total number of managed aircraft to 11.

The management contracts will see DCAF provide full flight operational aircraft management services, CAMO services, hangar parking and FBO handling at its Dubai facility at Al Maktoum International airport, in addition to providing maintenance services for the two aircraft.

Commenting on the new additions to the fleet, managing director of DCAF Holger Ostheimer says: “We have had a very strong start to the year with the addition of the Global 6000 and Global 5000 aircraft. The addition of these two exceptional business jets, in addition to the Global 7500 earlier this year, in our 10th year of operation, reinforces our position as one of the leading operators in the Middle East. Asset owners continue to believe in our commitment to transparency, quality and delivery of service, as well as our unmatched expertise in aircraft management, and we look forward to delivering on our promises.”
