Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 8 May 2021: Mohammed bin Rashid Aerospace Hub at Dubai South announced that private jets movements continued their impressive growth in 2021 with a 336% increase in Q1 2021, reaching 4,904 compared to 1,460 in Q1 2020 and 1,676 in Q1 2019.
Aircraft movements include the four FBOs operating at MBRAH, which are Jetex Executive Aviation, Jet Aviation, DC Aviation and ExecuJet Middle East.
Tahnoon Saif, CEO of Mohammed Bin Rashid Aerospace Hub, said: “Our private jets movements at the VIP Terminal in MBRAH have been increasing steadily since last July, which is a testament to the successful national vaccination campaign, the emirate's status as a preferred destination for tourists from across the world as well as Dubai's ranking third globally and second in the ‘Major Cities' category in the recent ‘FDI Global Cities of the Future 2021/2022' report as a magnet for foreign direct investment (FDI). We look forward to sustaining the momentum of aircraft movements as Dubai gears up to welcoming the world to Expo 2020 in October.”
MBRAH offers global aerospace players high-level connectivity and is a free-zone destination for the world's leading private jet companies and associated industries. Located in and developed by Dubai South, MBRAH is also home to maintenance centres as well as to training and education campuses and seeks to strengthen engineering industries.
