Abu Dhabi, February 26, 2014
Royal Jet, the Abu Dhabi-based international luxury flight services company, has announced that the work on its integrated base at Al Bateen Executive Airport is well underway with first phase set to complete by the fourth quarter of 2015.
The land allocated by Abu Dhabi Airports will be home to Royal Jet’s hangar - that can accommodate any aircraft in its fleet; state of the art maintenance facilities; Medevac and its administration headquarters.
Part of its first phase, Royal Jet will build a 4,500 sq m hangar in addition to a 5,000 sq m facility to include administration, workshops, spares storage and a training centre, all custom designed to cater for the private carrier’s future growth.
Shane O’Hare, Royal Jet president and CEO, said: “Royal Jet’s operational base at Al Bateen Executive Airport is a reflection of the consistent and continuous upward growth that the private jet industry has experienced in the last few years.”
“This move to a new facility, along with the UAE’s overall aviation strategy, is in line with Abu Dhabi’s 2030 Vision. Additionally, it complements our FBO facility at Abu Dhabi International Airport, customer demand and industry needs.”
Royal Jet, which had another great financial year in 2013 after seven consecutive years of healthy profits, is exhibiting at the region’s foremost General Aviation airshow, Abu Dhabi Air Expo, for the third consecutive year.
Abu Dhabi Airports CEO, Tony Douglas, stated: “It is only natural that the world’s leading private jet operators fly out of the world’s leading dedicated business aviation airport in the heart of Abu Dhabi. Royal Jet and Abu Dhabi Airports represent such a partnership of two world class companies with enormous ambitions.” – TradeArabia News Service
