With the AOC in hand, DCASM can now operate and manage third-party business aircraft commercially, including aircraft charter under San Marino's T7 registration. The first aircraft to be operated under the new AOC is the Bombardier Global 7500.
Holger Ostheimer, managing director of DC Aviation Al-Futtaim, says: "We are extremely pleased to have successfully fulfilled all the regulatory requirements to obtain our AOC from the SM-CAA. Our success is the culmination of over six months of hard work and I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the entire team for their exceptional efforts.
"The AOC grants us the flexibility to offer our VVIP customers a wider range of registration and operational options and complements our other AOC operation in Dubai and the DC Aviation Group's locations in Stuttgart and Malta."
