Business aviation movement in Dubai increases by 26 per cent

November 13, 2019. Dubai, United Arab Emirates: As part of its continuing move to achieve growth in private jet movements in Dubai, the Mohammed Bin Rashid Aerospace Hub (MBR Aerospace Hub) is rapidly picking up its pace as a growth center for the Middle East's high-value industries and the hub continues to empower the aviation and aerospace industry to expand their networks. MBR Aerospace hub reported that business aviation movements during the first half of 2019  posted a 26 per cent increase compared to the same period in 2018.

Located in Dubai South, MBR Aerospace Hub creates value to the aerospace and business aviation industries through a wide range of world-class soft and hard infrastructure, which enables the private jets to take advantage of Dubai as a destination and strategic location to connect to key markets across the region and the world.

The aerospace hub has built a community that services business travelers and private jet owners creating an experience that exceeds international standards. Private jets operators are benefitting from the customized services including a dedicated fuel service with a 20-minutes response time, high-quality catering services, aircraft parking and maintenance facilities.

The Business Aviation facilities within MBR Aerospace Hub currently handle more than 70 per cent of private jet movements in Dubai, which is forecasted to reach 100 per cent within the next three years. In line with this, business aviation partners confirmed to develop six aircraft hangars to be operational in 2021.

Tahnoon Saif, CEO, MBR Aerospace Hub , said, “These are truly exciting times for Dubai's Business Aviation community. The confident outlook has prompted us to develop a roadmap to meet demand. MBR Aerospace Hub continues its commitment to create value for the industry and meet the expectations of the business aviation community.”

With a total investment of AED 2.5 billion in the infrastructure and facilities out of the AED 17 billion planned initiatives in the 7-square kilometer area, MBR Aerospace Hub continuously develops other aspects of the aerospace sector including the Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) support facilities, an education and training cluster, and office & retail spaces.

The MRO facilities are designed to power up the aerospace sector's activities through a range of services in Al Maktoum International Airport and the Free Zone, which ranges from serviced airside & landside plots, taxiways and apron parking, large industrial units, small workshops and build-to-suit facilities.  In 2020, the MRO unit is set to launch the line-maintenance units and a helicopter maintenance cluster.

To meet the growing demand for aviation professionals and skilled labour, the aerospace hub has established a dedicated cluster for education and training institutions for pilots, professionals and maintenance technicians. Located next to the Emirates Flight Training Academy, the Education and Training facility is designed to attract simulator centres, academic universities, cabin crew training, and vocational training institutions for aviation and logistics.

To build a conducive business environment for local and international aviation players, a business center composed of office and retail spaces has been designed for aircraft management, airlines services, financial, legal, insurance and other activities to set up their headquarters or branches-- taking advantage from being in a world-class free zone aviation community.

The MBR Aerospace Hub  is the first of its kind in the region; creating an ideal environment for the aviation sector and offers a diverse portfolio of facilities and services that have been designed and developed to consolidate its presence as the gateway for operators—offering investors proximity to their clients, an integrated ecosystem with freezone status.
