Falcon Aviation, a leading provider of aviation services, charter and aircraft management in the Middle East, has opened a VIP Heliport at its Dubai South VIP Terminal location at Al Maktoum International Airport, Dubai. This will be available to anyone arriving to the terminal by business jet, with space for three large executive helicopters.

Only two hours’ notice is required for the transport to be ready. The company envisages five movements per day, and will have two helicopters available for charter, complementing similar businesses at Al Bateen Executive Airport, Abu Dhabi.

The VIP Heliport is the first of its kind in the region, taking customers from Dubai to Abu Dhabi in just 30 minutes. Helicopters can also reach other business and leisure destinations around the UAE, such as the Qasr Al Sarab Resort in just over an hour.

Captain Raman Oberoi, Falcon Aviation’s COO, added, “We are very proud to be opening up this important facility that will take clients directly to their destination of choice. We will have a dedicated team to support the heliport activity, to help with flight planning and pre booking slots.”
