JetEx’s ceo Adel Mardini says that the company is currently working towards setting up an FBO in the Middle East and expects to open a further eight offices in Africa before the end of the year.
Having only started operations on June 6, the Dubai-based company has already established itself firmly in Africa, the Middle East and the Far East.
“The main focus of our business is arranging flight support for our customers for private, cargo, commercial or air ambulance flights,” said Mardini. “We have local language experts in each country and have seven offices in Africa at locations where there are no handling agents.
“Right now all of the service providers are looking to the Middle East, Africa and Europe as the hubs of their businesses, but I believe that there is a lot of business and growing demand in Asia as well, especially in China, Hong Kong and Malaysia.”
As well as providing handling services, JetEx performs charter flights with its fleet of six aircraft, including a vip-configured Boeing 727 and a Falcon 900, which is currently logging 120 hours per month.
