Jetex team at EBACE

EBACE 2019

The European exhibition draws to a close today after an inspiring week for the business aviation industry in Geneva. We launched Jetex TV and spoke with Ed Bolen, NBAA president, about the subjects affecting business aviation in 2019 and beyond. We also spoke with Jetex’s Founder and CEO, Adel Mardini, about the exciting achievements we accomplished since EBACE 2018. Adel Mardini was also proud to accept an award from Coporate Jet Investor as one of 30 Dealmakers in Aviation, congratulations!

Honda Aircraft production facility

This week Jetex partner, HondaJet, announced production expansion to accommodate demand for the HondaJet Elite. The facility in Greensboro, North Carolina will help to make the production process more efficient with automation technologies. The facility will meet production needs created by more demand from India and Brazil, after selling 37 aircraft globally in 2018. Honda Aircraft has also announced plans to boost awareness of it’s private jets in Japan, where uptake is slow for jet purchases. Events such as the G20 and 2020 Olympics, along with local partnerships are expected to boost aircraft sales as well as business travel awareness in the region.

Women in Aviation

With discussions taking place across multiple industries about the importance of welcoming women into all roles, we are keen to keep the conversation about women in aviation going. It’s encouraging to see upward trends in the aviation industry, with multinationals headed by women including Marillyn Hewson of Lockheed Martin and Leanne Caret of Boeing Defense, Space, and Security. On the ground – or rather in the air, India is leading the way for female pilots – employing twice the global average in statistics published by the International Society of Women Airline Pilots. Ed Bolen, NBAA President, discussed the importance of attracting new talent to the business aviation industry – female role models are important to encourage others to join and flourish.

Growth in Morocco

Business aviation in Morocco continues to grow and Jetex is at the forefront of FBO provision to support business travelers. As the first FBO provider in Marrakech we continue to see an increase in luxury leisure visits, as well as diplomatic visits to Rabat. As well as filling the gaps of jet travel in Morocco, Jetex Founder and CEO Adel Mardini hopes to attract new customers to the market with the provision of new VIP locations including Agadir and Tangier.

Illegal air charter

With the global rise of sharing apps like Air BnB and Uber, it’s no surprise the trend has reached business aviation. Advertised as a cost effective and convenient way to travel, apps such as Uberjets and Blackbird allow users to ‘rideshare’. This can lead to potential uncertainty into the operational boundaries between pilot/passenger and AOC conditions. This is commonly referred to in the aviation industry as ‘gray charter’. The NBAA suggests vigilance from customers and increased education about the differences between Part 91 and Part 135 operators, to avoid ambiguity and maintain safety standards.

Bombardier Announcement

Jetex and Bombardier have signed an agreement for the establishment of a new Bombardier Line Maintenance Station at Jetex’s flagship FBO, Dubai Al Maktoum Airport.

Initially the service will offer unscheduled maintenance services and in the coming months move to a scheduled maintenance program. This new location joins 30 mobile units globally, equipped to support Bombardier Learjet, Challenger and Global business aircraft.

Find out more about the announcement at the press release.

Beijing Daxing International Airport to open in September

Beijing’s highly anticipated Beijing Daxing International Airport (IATA: PKX; ICAO: ZBAD) is set to open in September, after four test flights landed successfully on Monday May 13th. The airport will ease the pressure of neighboring Beijing Capital International Airport, Asia’s busiest, that reached capacity in 2013.

Daxing International will start to serve locations of China’s Belt and Road Initiative (also known as One Belt, One Road or OBOR) linking China and the new ‘Silk Road’. Cities on the route include Almaty (Kazakstan), Istanbul (Turkey), Athens, Greece and Rotterdam, Netherlands. Daxing will also serve Paris and London and by 2025 passenger traffic is estimated to reach 72 million.

23-year-old Captain Aarohi Pandit first woman to cross the Atlantic in LSA

Her 3,000km journey began in Wick, Scotland in July 2018 and ended this week at Iqaluit Airport in Canada. The record is more impressive when you learn about the size of the aircraft and the conditions she faced. The Light Service Aircraft (LSA) a small, single-engine Sinus 912 weighing a slight 400 kg took her over the Greenland ice-cap and through serious weather conditions.

Increase in electric aircraft programs

German consultancy Roland Berger has reported almost 170 electric powered aircraft programs are currently in progress. The growth, by nearly 50% since earlier in 2019, is driven by a need to focus on cleaner and more sustainable travel. Europe sees the highest number of projects – totaling 72, the USA following with 67 programs. Today saw the launch of an electric taxi prototype which aims to bring urban air mobility to the masses by 2025.

The trend resonates with Jetex’s vision and strategy to support electric aircraft in the executive aviation industry, with our partnership with Wright Electric. Wright Electric is striving to make every short haul flight a zero-emissions flight within 20 years. The airplanes, developed in collaboration with Jetex, will be 50% quieter and 10% less expensive to operate.

How does an electric aircraft compare to a standard fuel jet?  The estimated range is 540km or 335 miles, the equivalent to a flight from Jetex FBOs in Dubai to Muscat or Malaga to Casablanca on a single charge.

Jetex needs your help to redefine the FBO

FBOs have come a long way in the last 100 years – from simple refueling stops to exclusive and comfortable locations for the busy and discerning traveler. With such developments, Jetex Founder and CEO Adel Mardini is calling on the aviation industry and passengers to consider what makes an FBO today.

Jetex Private Terminal launch

“In a fast-evolving world where the only constant is change and the successful people are the ones challenging the status quo, we’re challenging the history of aviation to not just redefine but reinvent the term Fixed Based Operator (FBO). We are initiating an opportunity for aviation experts and passengers alike to ask themselves what the term FBO means to them and to share what it means to us.

The description of an FBO labels it as a gas station for planes, but since its origin in 1918 it has progressed to becoming a relaxed and stress-free setting for busy travelers. Towards the end of WW1 civil aviation was virtually unregulated and consisted of mainly transient pilots, operating military surplus aircraft that landed wherever it could. This prompted pilots to set up temporary camps offering aircraft maintenance and flight training, which by 1926 when aviation regulations were put in place, then became what we now know one hundred years later as an FBO.

Since the launch of FBOs the need to travel for business has increased drastically and the demand for high standards even more so. Hence, I ask you to question whether you agree that the evolution of FBOs prompts a chance to rename them in order to fully celebrate the extent of what they now offer?

As FBOs formerly provided only operational support, there was a gap in the experience that the upmarket clientele who use private jets were receiving. FBOs now offer an assortment of services that include gym facilities, games rooms, quality food and beverage, concierge, movie theatres and not forgetting a fleet of cars to transport travelers comfortably over the tarmac to their jet.

The hospitality industry didn’t shy from producing unique names for places to stay. Whether guests visit a hotel, motel, bed and breakfast or hostel, they know the standard to expect from each, so why can’t we do the same for our global FBOs? The use of FBOs to solely take care of the operational logistics of traveling on a private jet is becoming a thing of the past and so should the name.

Change is inevitable and we believe that 100 years is enough. What would the natural evolution of the FBO as a name be?”

Madrid Football Stadium

Spain’s central capital, Madrid, is home to world-renowned art galleries, elegant boulevards and baroque royal palaces scattered among expansive parks and plazas. It’s also the 2019 host of the UEFA Champions League Final, so we have put together a weekend break where you can soak up the tapas culture as well as cheer on the finalists.

Things to do in Madrid

Home to Picasso’s Guernica, arguably Spain’s most famous artwork, the Centro de Arte Reina Sofía is Madrid’s premier collection of contemporary art. In addition to a large selection of paintings by Picasso you can also admire the works of Salvador Dalí and Joan Miró.

Set in a lofty glass and wrought iron building the Mercado de San Miguel
is one of Madrid’s oldest markets. Order tapas from the counter bars and enjoy the bustling atmosphere.

Head to Madrid’s grand central square, Plaza Mayor, a rare but spacious opening in the tightly packed streets of central Madrid. One of the prettiest open spaces in Spain, a winning combination of imposing architecture, picturesque historical tales and vibrant street life. Enjoy a coffee or aperitif as you watch the crowds mingle.

After a day spent exploring the city treat yourself to a Michelin starred meal from one of the 21 awarded restaurants in the city. Jetex recommends Santceloni (at Hotel Hesperia) in the heart of Paseo de la Castellana, where Chef Óscar Velasco uses local market produce. In central Madrid we recommend Coque, Mario Sandoval’s creative and avant-garde cuisine.

For football fans the city of Madrid will host the UEFA Champions League final on the 1st June 2019. The final Europa league fixture will be played at Atletico Madrid’s famous stadium Estadio Metropolitano (Wanda Metropolitano), in front of a crowd of over 65,000. Jetex can organize VIP tickets to the final UEFA fixture as well as VIP transfers on the day. Contact experience@jetex.com for more information.

If your loyalties lie with Real Madrid then we can recommend a trip to the club’s famed Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. The stadium tour includes access to the bench, changing rooms, the pitch, press room, as well as the presidential box. Relive the club’s best moments as you admire the trophy and memorabilia collection in the Trophy Room and put yourself in the player’s shoes as you walk through the tunnel, the pitch and the changing rooms.

Where to stay in Madrid

The Ritz

Built in 1910 and located in the heart of Madrid’s Golden Triangle of art galleries, this charming Belle-Epoque style hotel is the ideal base for exploring the capital’s cultural gems.

Hotel Wellington

Located in the chic Salamanca neighborhood just a stone’s throw from Retiro Park, this famous Madrid hotel has been visited by royalty and Hollywood stars. Foodies will love its Michelin-starred Japanese restaurant, Kabuki Wellington, as well as its Basque restaurant, Goizeko Wellington.

Cannes Film Festival and Monaco Grand Prix

May marks one of the most exciting months of the year with several un-missable events on the French Riviera – including Cannes Film Festival and Monaco Grand Prix. Also known as the Cote D’Azur, the Mediterranean shoreline of the southeast corner of France is recognized for its breathtaking coastline views, azure blue sea and luxury jet-set lifestyle.

Starting with the celebrity-filled red carpets at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival (14th -25th May), followed by the ultimate adrenaline rush of the 77th annual Monaco Grand Prix (25th-27th May), both Cannes and Monaco have pulled out all the stops to deliver the most exclusive events, best nightclubs and hottest DJs this summer. Jetex can arrange invitations to Opening & Closing ceremonies, film premieres and exclusive galas and after-parties including Chopard and Vanity Fair. If you’re ready to continue the party into the early hours, we can also organize VIP nightclub access at all the best nightlife spots in Cannes. Speak to our Experience team and they can take care of the rest.

Things to see on the Cote D’Azur

Away from the paparazzi and after-parties the Cote D’Azur offers visitors a wealth of antique architecture and beautiful works of art. Monet, Renoir, Picasso, Chagall and Matisse were greatly inspired by the beauty of the region. Jetex recommends a visit to Antibes, boasting the National Picasso Museum, featuring the work “War and Peace” portraying the painter’s love for the area.
For those with a passion for architecture and antiquity, the Greek Villa of Kerylos, the Cimiez Arenas and the Tropaeum Alpium are all evidence of strong ties linking the Côte d’Azur to ancient times. Italy has had a strong influence on French Riviera architecture; the Villa Ephrussi Rothschild, the Chapelle Notre-Dame des Fontaines and the Jean Cocteau Museum (Severin Wunderman collection) in Menton are all excellent examples.

Podium finish in Monaco

Probably the most famous fixture in Formula 1, the Monaco Grand-Prix takes place on the winding streets of Monaco itself – the Circuit de Monaco. The event, run since 1929, makes for a thrilling display as drivers attempt to overtake on the narrow bends as spectators watch from their yachts and the streets. This year expect to see Ferrari newcomer Charles Leclerc battle it out between his team mate Sebastien Vettel and Mercedes rival Lewis Hamilton.

After the podium finish the principality is filled with partying and celebrations into the early hours with opportunities to brush shoulders with drivers and celebrities. Head to the legendary Jimmy’z Monte-Carlo for world-renowned DJ’s, or the highly recommended Sunset bar for an all-day party overlooking yachts in the bay. Jetex can recommend the best dining locations and handle all reservations for your Monaco stay.

If you would like to appreciate all that the Cote D’Azur has to offer from the sea, then we can arrange a private yacht charter in the French Riviera. Enjoy a sunset catamaran cruise for an evening or avoid the crowds as you make your way leisurely to the Monaco Grand Prix by yacht.

Traveling to Cannes Film Festival and Monaco Grand Prix

As well as organizing your trip itinerary and securing tickets to exclusive events we can also assist you with aircraft charter to Cannes and Monaco. During this high traffic period we would recommend securing PPR slots, local transport and accommodation as soon as possible in order to avoid disappointment.
Nice (LFMN/NCE) is the preferred airport for Cannes and Monaco with Cannes (LFMD/CEQ) as alternate. Both airports mandate airport slots and prior permission required (PPR). Nice operates 24/7 and can accommodate all aircraft sizes. If you are traveling to Cannes note that the airport is operational from 0800 until 30 minutes after sunset only, with a maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) of 35,000kg. At Nice customs, immigration and quarantine (CIQ) takes place in the general aviation terminal (GAT) between 0800-2100 or at the main terminal or GAT at CIQ’s discretion after these hours. At Cannes CIQ will always be completed at the main terminal.

It is possible that Nice may experience fuel shortages in this period, so it’s suggested to fuel on arrival or partially refuel. A NOTAM will be issued if there is a fuel shortage and uplifts will be limited. Local transport and crew transport will also be in demand during this time, so speak to our Trip Planning team who can make the necessary arrangements with our local contacts. Contact france@jetex.com for more information and advice.

Flying to Geneva

Geneva

Geneva Airport (IATA: GVA, ICAO: LSGG) is the main international airport serving Geneva. LSGG functions as an Airport of Entry (AoE) and offers a full range of General Aviation (GA) support services and ground handling equipment for business aircraft. The airport operates from 06:00 – 22:00 local time, seven days a week. No overtime is possible and all arrivals must be on the ground by 22:00, otherwise, they face being diverted to another airport. Departures must be in the air by 21:45 at the latest. The airport is usually busy throughout the day. As there is only one runway, delays can sometimes occur due to inclement weather. However, this should not be an issue during the month of May, when conditions are generally favorable.

During EBACE, some of the parking areas normally used by GA will be restricted due to the static aircraft display. As a result, overnight parking may be limited during the event period.

Alternate Airports

Alternate airports which can be used for repositioning include Lyon–Saint Exupéry Airport (IATA: LYS, ICAO: LFLL)Zürich Airport (IATA: ZRH, ICAO: LSZH) and Basel Mulhouse Freiburg (IATA: MLH, ICAO: LFSB). All function as AoEs and offer a full complement of GA support services. However, due to their relatively long distances from the EBACE venue (140km, 280km, and 255km respectively), Geneva Airport remains the best available option. In order to guarantee your spot, it is recommended to ensure that all permits, slots, and permissions are arranged well in advance.

Landing permits for Switzerland

Swiss landing permits are mandatory only for charter (non-scheduled commercial) flights. Private non-revenue flights do not require landing permits. Documents which need to be submitted with the permit application include the plane’s airworthiness and registration certificates, air operator certificate (AOC), and insurance details. The official lead time is five working days, although permits are usually processed within two or three days.

Airport Slots & PPR

Slots are issued in 19-minute blocks, with all timings strictly enforced. Once the request has been approved, a confirmation number will be provided which should be entered in the remarks section of the flight plan. Prior Permission Required (PPR) is not usually required at LSGG, however, due to heavy traffic must be obtained during the EBACE period and other business conventions.

Fuel Uplift

VAT is applied on fuel sales in Switzerland. Enroll in our VAT exemption program today and experience the benefits of VAT-free fueling across 18 European countries. For further details, please contact vat@jetex.com.

Customs & Immigration

Customs and immigration are cleared within the general aviation terminal at LSGG and is usually a fast and straightforward process. Passports of passengers and crew must have a remaining validity of at least six months. Visas may be required, depending on nationality. There are no visas on arrival in Switzerland, so they must be arranged prior to departure.

Hotels

Hotels in Geneva will have higher prices and stricter cancellation policies during the EBACE period, with four-star accommodation running as high as $300 – 500 USD per night. Jetex has the connections necessary to secure the best available accommodation, at highly competitive rates. Contact our travel team today to discuss your EBACE hotel requirements.

Sitting on the Southern end of Spain is the city of Málaga. This city is amongst the oldest cities in the world and homes our Málaga Location.

This city that rests on the Costa del Sol [Coast of the Sun] is the capital of the Province of Málaga. This municipality capital is also the 6th most populous city in Spain.

Visitors just can’t help but be attracted to this wondrous city and Pablo Ruiz Picasso’s birthplace. The Málaga Airport [IATA: AGP, ICAO: LEMG] is the fourth busiest airport in the country. This comes as no surprise with 18.6 million passengers passing through the region’s main international airport in 2017.

Save on VAT

Domestic or private flights will have to pay VAT on fuel purchases in Spain.

The Middle East and North Africa Business Aviation Association [MEBAA] show is quick approaching.

The MEBAA show is one of the biggest events to take place in the aviation industry’s calendar. The event is taking place from the 10th to the 12th of December 2018. The Dubai World Central [DWC] Airshow Site is set to host the exhibition and is expected to attract companies and industry professionals from across the industry.

MEBAA Show 2018

Tarsus F&E LLC Middle East will be running and organizing this go-to exhibition on behalf of MEBAA. The show’s 9th edition is highly-anticipated and will provide an unrivaled platform for exhibitors to strengthen and create relationships with customers and competitors.

Visitors attending the event will also be given the opportunity to walk through the static aircraft display – which features the newest jets to be introduced to the market. Along with the main exhibition, there will be a number of speakers at the conference to discuss and bring a focus to the latest trends within the business aviation sector.

Previous MEBAA events have played a pivotal role in market growth. This growth has been achieved through the valuable platform given to aviation professionals to discuss and address the issues the business aviation community is facing across the region. It is here that concern over topics like cybersecurity, aviation finance, and innovation can be spoken about in depth while providing potential solutions.

This year, MEBAA is focused on the new trends occurring within the industry. Blockchain is one topic that attendees can be sure to hear about as discussions over the technology’s basics, potential, and benefits are established.

MEBAA & Jetex, Exceeding Expectations

Jetex has once again been appointed as the event’s official FBO and Handler, a prestigious title that reflects the high standard of service that is enjoyed by our elite clientele. MEBAA and Jetex have worked in partnership since 2014. Together the two organizations have successfully curated and led some of the most significant aviation shows in the MENA region – including the 2014 MEBAA Show, the 2017 Dubai Airshow, and more. The dedicated Jetex team will coordinate the static aircraft display areas and provide expert ground handling services at the MEBAA Show 2018.
