Jetex has signed an agreement with Falcon Aviation to manage its FBO and hangar at Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai.

The move marks a significant milestone for the private aviation industry as the company becomes the operator of a private terminal that covers more than 32,000ft².

The new passenger lounge at Al Maktoum International Airport will complement Jetex’s existing facilities to cater to the increasing demand for private jet travel in the region.

Under the terms of the agreement, Jetex will be responsible for improving the lounge at the airport to provide consistent service standards to the customers.

In addition, travellers will have priority access to a range of new elegant extras, including dedicated spaces for those who seek privacy, luxury en-suite bedrooms and a kids club.

The FBO is open to all operators, corporates and private individuals arriving with their business jets and facilitates quick and convenient helicopter charters between Dubai and Abu Dhabi in a short amount of time.
