Jetex has unveiled a new flagship private terminal in the heart of the UAE capital, Abu Dhabi.

Following a successful redevelopment and upgrade, the flagship private terminal builds upon the distinctive legacy of Al Bateen Executive airport, the region's only dedicated private jet airport. Conveniently located with centre-of-town road connectivity, the airport provides rapid access to Abu Dhabi's key financial, tourist and entertainment destinations.

Behind the terminal's futuristic facade lies a personal oasis complete with lavish furnishing and finishes. Guests travelling via Jetex Abu Dhabi will experience its award-winning hospitality. With on-site immigration and customs support, the passenger experience is fast and smooth during both arrival and departure.

Jetex founder and CEO Adel Mardini says: "The opening of Jetex Abu Dhabi marks a milestone for our brand and confirms our commitment to the region. We are especially excited to bring the Jetex experience to the UAE capital. We promise a regal welcome to this beautiful city for our international guests as well as to ensure that every need is anticipated, every wish is granted and every minute is memorable when you are with us."

Al Bateen Executive airport is one of five airports managed and operated by Abu Dhabi Airports. It was built in the 1960s and for many years served as the main gateway to Abu Dhabi. Since 2008, the airport has operated as an executive jet facility. Elena Sorlini, managing director and interim CEO, adds: "The renovation of the VVIP terminal at Al Bateen further strengthens the luxury service offering to our passengers. We are committed to developing our aviation assets and delivering the highest quality service standards to our clients."

Jetex Abu Dhabi will stimulate further growth and expansion of the private aviation sector in the capital of the UAE. The globally recognised brand will create additional value and offer new opportunities to UAE citizens, residents and international travellers.

Expansion work at the airport was completed in 2022, and involved the resurfacing and widening of the existing 3.2km runway to accommodate widebody aircraft, in addition to upgraded ground lighting, enhanced signage and landscaping. The secure apron and hangar parking facilities can accommodate up to 50 aircraft.
