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.
