Private Jets Dubai

The Mohammed bin Rashid Aerospace Hub (MBRAH) at Dubai South has said that private jets movements in 2020 grew by 21 per cent compared to 2019, driven mainly by a high number of movements in the last quarter of the year following the reopening of airports in the country.

The aerospace hub also recorded a 78 per cent growth of private jets movements in Q4 2020 alone, compared to Q4 2019.

The MBRAH is a freezone for the airlines, private jet companies, and associated industries. It is also home to maintenance centres and training and education campuses.

“It gives us immense pleasure to see the substantial increase in private jet travel across the VIP Terminal at MBRAH for the second consecutive quarter. This exceptional performance is due to, among many reasons, Dubai’s status as a preferred destination for tourists, associated with the launch of the ‘World’s Coolest Winter’ campaign, and the UAE ranking among the top countries in the world in efficiently handling the Covid-19 pandemic,” said Tahnoon Saif, CEO of MBRAH.

Facilitating requirements for adhering to Covid-19 testing, other private jet terminals have also rolled out measures of their own.

For example, all passengers arriving at DC Aviation Al-Futtaim (DCAF)’s private jet hanger facility located at Dubai South have the option of taking either a free PCR test whose results will be available in 36-48 hours or an express test for an extra fee of Dhs550 whose results will be available in 6-12 hours.

Meanwhile, the Middle East and North Africa Business Aviation Association (MEBAA) has announced that its aviation show – which was initially scheduled to take place in 2020 and then rescheduled to 2021 – will now be pushed to December 2022 at the DWC Dubai airshow site.
