Empire Aviation backs Dubai Air Show
Dubai, November 12, 2013
Empire Aviation Group (EAG), the Dubai and India-based one stop shop for private aviation with the largest managed fleet of business jets in the region, will showcase its aircraft sales and management services at the Dubai Air Show.
Services to aircraft owners now include a new smart app that allows owners to check the status of their aircraft and obtain flight, route and destination information, conveniently from a smart device.
During 2013 the Empire Aviation Group added three new aircraft to its existing managed fleet; acquired its first managed aircraft in India; sold three business jets to owners; and grown the team to 120 staff, a company statement said.
EAG’s managed fleet of business jets – now spanning the Middle East, Africa and India – continues to grow, with the recent addition of two Falcon 900DX business jets to come under EAG management, both based in Africa. The company now has around 23 business jets under management across the Middle East, Africa and India.
At Dubai Air Show, EAG will showcase a new partnership with aviation technology specialist SkyTech Solutions, which is developing an array of new e-services and m-services to connect owners to key information about aircraft availability, destinations, flight planning and support, for fast and easy access to information - and their aircraft.
The new application - Flight Information Management (FIM) System – is designed to deliver information over mobile platforms and smart devices.
EAG will also present its new operations in India (Empire Aviation – India), which are now well established, and with plans on track for further development.
Twelve months after launching its full operations there from the base in Bangalore, Empire Aviation - India is delivering the full portfolio of sales, management and operations services based on the company’s distinctive asset management approach, for the benefit of aircraft owners and operators.
Paras Dhamecha, executive director of Empire Aviation Group, said: “This edition of Dubai Air Show will be a very special occasion when the show is hosted for the first time at the new Dubai World Central airport.”
“It comes at an exciting time for Empire Aviation Group and allows us to present our full portfolio of aviation services at the event, whilst entertaining owners, clients, partners and guests at our own dedicated pavilion. 2013 has been a very strong year for us in the Middle East and we have put in the foundations of our new operations in India, which is now replicating our successful aircraft asset management model.”
The Dubai Air show is taking place from November 17 to 21 at Dubai World Central. – TradeArabia News Service
