ExecuJet unveils major Dubai relocation plan

ExecuJet has announced plans to relocate its entire Dubai FBO and MRO operations to a single facility located at Dubai South’s Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC).

The new 25,700m² (276,632ft²) facility will be ExecuJet’s regional headquarters for the Middle East, and home to an FBO, MRO services with 13,800m² (148,541ft²) of on-site hangar floor space, and ExecuJet support services offices. Construction of the facility is due to commence in early 2018, with an estimated completion date of the end of 2019 in time for the start of Dubai Expo 2020.

Mike Berry, executive vice president of aviation services at Luxaviation Group, of which ExecuJet is a part of, said, “The Middle East is a key region for us, with roughly 20% of the Luxaviation Group’s overall business stemming from it. It is therefore essential that our facilities reflect this demand and it brings me great pleasure to be announcing our relocation to a much larger site at Al Maktoum.

“We began operating in Dubai in 1999 and opened a shared, single lounge FBO facility in 2007 with a team of just four ExecuJet employees. We have come an exceptionally long way in that time and our proposed expansion reflects the ambitious nature of everybody associated with the business. We look forward to welcoming customers to our new facility when it opens its doors in 2019.”

Currently located at DWC, the FBO and MRO line-team will continue to provide maintenance support 12 hours a day, seven days a week, and will be further supported by a 24-hour AOG (aircraft on ground) hotline.

ExecuJet currently manages two facilities in Dubai, one at Dubai International Airport (DXB) and another at its temporary facilities at DWC, both providing FBO and MRO services.

The DXB facility features eight luxury lounges with landside access, a duty-free shop, ground handling and flight planning services. The 600m² (6.458ft²) DWC facility has four VIP lounges, a crew lounge and two transit lounges.
