Geneva

EBACE 2022

Business leaders, manufacturers, government officials and business aviation professionals will soon gather at Geneva’s Palexpo for European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) on 23-25 May 2022. For all private aviation professionals, it’s the perfect event to learn about the latest advances in private aviation.

The leading European event exclusively for the business aviation market, EBACE is jointly hosted by the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) and the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) – the leading organization for the business aviation industry in the United States. Although the event focuses on the European market, attendees travel from Africa, the Middle East, Asia and North and South America.

Visit Jetex at EBACE

Jetex has been a major part of EBACE for many years and we invite you to be the first to discover our latest news and announcements at the event.

EBACE Location and Venue

Palexpo is Geneva’s biggest exhibition and convention center, conveniently located adjacent to both Geneva International Airport and the city’s rail station. The venue is also easily accessible by motorway from the rest of Switzerland, as well as from France, Germany, and Italy. On-site parking is available for 2,800 vehicles.

EBACE2022 Program Schedule

As well as the many exhibits and static aircraft displays, attendees can join a variety of Keynote speeches, panelist discussions and networking events throughout the event. You can find out more about the program and timings at the schedule here.

Flying to 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 general aviation 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 fuel service. 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 charge premium rates with stricter cancellation policies during EBACE, with four-star accommodation starting from CHF 300 per night. Contact our travel team today to discuss your EBACE hotel requirements.

Doha Skyline

Travel Advice

Qatar is the smallest country to ever host a World Cup, which means the amount of accommodation and travel will be limited within the country itself. Therefore, tour operators are starting to look for alternative options outside of the country. The most popular overseas base destinations are Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Manama and Muscat, due to their location and also as standout holiday spots in their own right.

Whether you are traveling on your own or as a group, it might be wise to consider booking a charter flight. These can be cost-effective and convenient because you can travel at a time that suits you without the restrictions of a scheduled flight. This option also allows you to skip lengthy commercial airport procedures and travel to a match and back on the same day without the need for booking accommodation in Doha.

Dubai World Cup

The Dubai World Cup, is an annual event which has helped to place the United Arab Emirates on the map and is home to the world’s top racing challenge, drawing the attention of millions of enthusiasts around the globe.

Dubai World Cup Poster

The race was first held in 1996, at the original venue of Nad Al Sheba Racecourse. It is a Group One flat race on dirt, run over a distance of 2,000 meters (around 10 furlongs). The current record time of 1:59.50 is held by legendary jockey Frankie Dettori, who rode Dubai Millennium to victory in the year 2000. The event transferred to its current home, Meydan Racecourse, in 2010.

The Dubai World Cup sees top-calibre horses from all over the world – America, Europe, Australia, South Africa, Hong Kong and Japan. There are nine Group races throughout the day, including six at the elite Group 1 level, with the main event – the $12 million namesake Dubai World Cup sponsored by Emirates airline. There are no bookmakers, but you can enter free competitions to predict the winners for the chance to win cash prizes.

It is much more than a single race day, though. The Dubai World Cup Carnival is a lead up to the Dubai World Cup that features nine race meetings with horses from around the world. It’s held on consecutive Thursday evenings throughout January and February, followed by Super Saturday on the second weekend in March, which is the “dress rehearsal” for the Dubai World Cup where the best horses compete for the berths. The UAE racing season – and thus the racing action in Dubai – kicks off in late October and finishes in mid-April. So, even if you are not in town for the big day, you can still catch some top racing action.

Exceptional Venue

 An occasion as momentous as the Dubai World Cup requires a befitting home, however, which is most certainly the case at the state-of-the-art Meydan Racecourse. Building upon the 14-year legacy begun by Nad Al Sheba Racecourse, which gave way to the new and improved Meydan Racecourse in 2010. Revealing an ultramodern grandstand that sits beneath the iconic crescent roof, accompanied inside by a stellar selection of fine-dining establishments, a theatre and the Meydan Museum and Gallery – which only begins to describe the many elements of this architectural feat.

As such, the purpose-built stadium serves as a lasting tribute to the elegance associated with the Dubai World Cup and the ever-evolving marvels of the city beyond. But of course, at the heart of Meydan Racecourse is the racing itself, which can be admired in all manner of ways while catering for all varieties of budgets. Inviting you to catch the action from the main social hubs of Apron Views or The Gallery. Gradually increasing in exclusivity to the high-end hospitality experiences which await within the Grandstand Suites, Cigar Suite, Sky Bubble and The Lounge – each revealing unrivalled offerings of wining, dining and socializing, along with the best views to watch the Dubai World Cup.

Fashion & Etiquette

 Such is the sense of occasion at the Dubai World Cup, you may also want to look the part – with fashion as integral to the day as the racing itself. Encouraging both men and women to flaunt their style, flair and creativity as you swap shorts for suits and ditch skirts in favors of elegant gowns. Culminating with the Style Stakes: where the best-dressed racegoers will be hand-picked by a panel of judges and suitably rewarded for their style, elegance, creativity and all-round outfit-picking prowess.

When deciding upon an outfit, however, you may also want to consider the etiquette of the occasion. So think class, sophistication and head-to-toe style, complete of course with a showstopping hat or fascinator. But you will also want to dress practically, taking into consideration the warm weather and the likelihood that you will be stood on your feet for long periods of time. But all in all, a day at the Dubai World Cup is one that lingers long in the memory – and will likely leave you counting down the days until you can do it all over again.

More than Just a Race

After the drama of the Dubai World Cup has run its course and the year’s victor has been crowned, get set to dance, dine and carouse your way into the early hours at the event’s official after party. Revealing an elegant evening of fine dining and socialising, set to the sound of some of the world’s most famous musicians and escorted by the extravagance that can be expected from any social occasion in Dubai.

Should you not be able to attend the Dubai World Cup or are simply in search of some more racing action, however, you’ll be pleased to know that there are many ways in which you can experience a day at the races in Dubai. As Meydan Racecourse hosts 23 meetings between the months of November and March, starring the world-renowned races of the Dubai World Cup Carnival and Super Saturday – the official dress rehearsal of the Dubai World Cup.

But of course, beyond the racing, no end of enjoyment can be found among the city’s astonishing sights on a holiday in Dubai. Beckoning you to bask upon soft white sands, scale the heights of the world’s tallest building, or shop until you drop in the planet’s biggest mall. Served alongside the rich offerings of culture that thrive within a stellar selection of museums, galleries and the fragrant spice markets of the alluring Old Town.

Dubai International Airport is currently the world’s busiest airport by international passenger traffic, and is primarily dedicated to scheduled commercial flights (serving as the home base for Emirates Airlines and flydubai). OMDB is located 20km northeast of Meydan Racecourse, while OMDW is approximately 52km south west from the venue. Please note that the roads leading to OMDB are often affected by traffic congestion, particularly during peak times. OMDW does not face this issue.

OMDB and OMDW offer 24-hour Airport of Entry (AoE) with customs and immigration available on-site, and are fully equipped to support GA flights. Airport slots are required for both airports, and parking needs to be booked in advance. Long-term parking availability will depend on the type of aircraft.

Throughout February and March, top designers and fashion houses get to showcase their collections in New York, London, Milan and Paris in what is known as Fashion Week.

Fashion Week is an entire week, sometimes ten days, dedicated to fashion. That is, it is a time for fashion designers, fashion labels and big luxury fashion houses to present their latest collections and receive praise for their hard work.

Fashion Week takes place over a month called “Fashion Month” in four major cities called the Big Four: New York, Milan, London and Paris. Keep in mind that other cities such as Berlin, Moscow or Stockholm also hold their own fashion weeks that are usually characterized by lesser shows and last only a few days.

There are three kinds of Fashion weeks: Haute Couture (which stands for high-end handmade tailored dressmaking) – Prét-à-Porter (Ready-to-Wear) and Menswear.

 

New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2022: Feb 10 – 14, 2022:

F1 Grand Prix Abu Dhabi

9-12 December 2021

The Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is returning and is set to see out another magnificent Formula One season out in style. The annual car-racing extravaganza in Abu Dhabi will bring together a range of fun activities ranging from exclusive rooftop parties, concerts plus art and sporting events. More than 60,000 racing enthusiasts are expected to flock to the capital of the United Arab Emirates grand prix.

Yas Marina Circuit Changes

After complaints last year about the venue not delivering enough of a spectacle for F1, circuit bosses gave the green light for a major overhaul of the layout. Following months of work, the raft of tweaks in three areas of the track have now been completed and resulted in the track being slightly shorter at 5.28km.

The biggest tweak is at the newly renamed Marsa corner at the end of the second backstraight, where a sequence of 90-degree bends have been replaced by a single banked turn. Simulations suggest cars will take this at 240km/h.

The hairpin before the first back straight has also been changed, with the chicane before it removed and the tight turn itself widened to a 20-meter wide corner. It is expected that cars will be approaching this hairpin at 300km/h.

Yas Marina Circuit is already one of the most modern and impressive Formula 1 tracks in the world, and these enhancements will ensure spectators in attendance will see a wealth of entertainment across all motorsports disciplines moving forward, as well as providing exhilarating racing for those on the track.

Full Capacity Event

Abu Dhabi’s Formula 1 GP to be held at full capacity. Those who attend will be required to present a Green Pass through the Al Hosn app, a negative PCR test taken within 48 hours and wear a mask to enter the venue. Children under the age of 12 will also be permitted to attend events during the race week.

Etihad Park

Concerts

US pop star Khalid will begin the proceedings on Thursday, 9 December, and British rapper Stormzy will perform the following night on Friday, 10 December.

On Saturday, 11 December, Scot Lewis Capaldi, winner of two Brit Awards, will bring his soulful sound to Etihad Park.

The Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2021 will end on an epic rock note with Foo Fighters headlining the race day concert at Etihad Park on Sunday, 12 December.

Private Jet Access

Located less than an hour away from the Yas Marina Circuit, the award-winning Jetex VIP Terminal is the finest private jet gateway to the event. Seamless ground transfers can be arranged for individual and group travelers.

JETEX AND EVE, AN EMBRAER COMPANY, REVOLUTIONIZE THE FUTURE OF MOBILITY

17 November 2021

Jetex and Eve join forces to imagine a safe, accessible and green air mobility ecosystem.

Jetex, an award-winning global leader in executive aviation, and Eve Urban Air Mobility, an Embraer company, signed a Memorandum of Understanding and today announced a partnership aimed at developing the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) ecosystem.

UAM will make air commuting more accessible and convenient for everyone. 100% electric, quiet and safe, electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft are the future of transportation aimed at easing congestion and bypassing any potential ground mobility restrictions.

The creation of disruptive and widely accessible UAM solutions will help democratize mobility by making it more accessible, affordable and offering communities more options. The new eVTOL aircraft concept results from a broad range of tests and simulations, aiming at operational optimization for the urban environment, considering high reliability, low operating costs, a lower noise footprint, being fully electric powered and progressively autonomous.

With their global expertise, Jetex and Eve will explore the possibilities to develop UAM infrastructure in various locations, map potential operations in different environments and their efficient integration. A recognized leader in exceptional customer service, Jetex will lend its experience to design a seamless passenger journey, which will be aimed at utmost comfort and convenience. Jetex will also work closely with different authorities to ensure that the new concept complies with local regulations and requirements.

“Jetex is a recognized leader in innovation and we always seek new ways to integrate new concepts ahead of the market. The new partnership will allow us to support Eve’s aircraft and product development process, which will help guide the integration of UAM with our overall operations,” said Adel Mardini, Founder & CEO of Jetex.

Backed by Embraer’s more than 50-year history of aircraft manufacturing and certification expertise, Eve unveils a unique value proposition by offering a suite of products and services. Eve’s zero-emission and low noise eVTOL represents a simple and intuitive design that continues to reach development milestones, including the first flight of the engineering simulator in July 2020, and a proof of concept in October 2020.

JetClub and Jetex

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, November 14, 2021 – Jetex, an award-winning global leader in executive aviation, has announced a new memorandum of understanding (MOU) with JetClub, a fractional ownership-based business aviation brand. The MOU signing ceremony between Adel Mardini, Founder & CEO of Jetex, and Vishal Hiremath, Founder & CEO of JetClub, took place at Jetex VIP Terminal ahead of the Dubai Airshow 2021.

“Jetex is pleased to partner with JetClub and we see this as a natural evolution of our service offering. Within the current context, as we emerge from the health crisis and see a recovery in the global economy, I believe that the two companies are in an excellent position to continue to grow and further strengthen our lead in the global aviation market. Both JetClub and Jetex are leaders in innovation as they offer a new way for more consumers to access private aviation and enjoy its benefits. We are confident of the value Jetex can add to JetClub’s discerning fractional aircraft owners and passengers”, said Adel Mardini, Founder & CEO of Jetex.

“After successfully starting operations in Europe, we are exploring the Middle East market as our next strategic opportunity. Business and leisure travel has resumed, and private aviation is a fast, hygienic, safe, efficient option. Our agreement with Jetex allows us to explore the market, gain feedback from clients and expand our service offering, ensuring our clients have the best possible experience around the world. Our goal is to allow our clients in the United States, Europe or Asia to be able to have access to a worldwide fleet”, said Vishal Hiremath, Founder and CEO, JetClub Group.

Fractional ownership has made private jet travel accessible to new consumers for the first time, making the business model attractive, globally. JetClub and its sister company, Jet It, now operate a fleet of 14 HondaJet aircraft, making the group the largest HondaJet operator in the world.

JetClub’s HondaJet will be on display at the Dubai Airshow 2021 and at the Jetex VIP Terminal. The HondaJet is one of the lightest, quietest, and most fuel-efficient jet in its category, burning four times less fuel than a larger aircraft. With 70% of the group’s flights being less than three hours in duration with less than four passengers, it is a more sustainable, economical, hygienic, safe and convenient way to fly.

JetClub is based upon a fractional ownership model in which club members purchase a share of the jet in return for a certain number of days and not hours, which is a unique innovation in this space. JetClub and Jetex aim to make business aviation more accessible at a lower cost with exceptional service and a relentless priority on safety and efficient operations.
