Abu Dhabi, September 16, 2008
Prestige Jet has been confirmed as a platinum sponsor of the Second Middle East Business Aviation Show (MEBA) 2008, to be held from November 16 to 18. The event is forecast to be double the size of the inaugural 2007 show.
The airline, which was founded in May 2007, will also have a large physical presence at this year’s MEBA, showcasing its recently announced partnership with Duncan Aviation.
Duncan Aviation is a large, privately owned corporate aviation business, and a recognised industry leader, dedicated to the provision of maintenance and a wide array of other services for the corporate business aircraft industry.
'We are naturally proud to be in a position to put our support behind what is the flagship event for our industry in the region and to help further demonstrate the current strength of the Middle East private aviation business and to encourage future growth opportunities that exist for everyone in this segment,' said Faris Deeb, managing director, Prestige Jet.
'At the same time we are able to declare that Prestige Jet, while a relatively new entrant in this market, has quickly cemented its position as a leading private aviation company through a number of strategic investments and strategies.'
Organisers of MEBA 2008, F&E Aerospace, recently stated that global and regional business aviation demand is being fuelled by the business community's increasing recognition of the value of using business jets as a means of enhancing productivity.
And according to industry sources, some 39,000 new business aircraft will be entering the global market by 2027, 40 per cent of which are expected to be in the medium or large business jet category.-TradeArabia News Service
