Agreement between Oman Airports Management Company and
Jetex Flight Support heralds new era for Omani Business Aviation
Dubai, UAE, November 9, 2017 – Jetex Flight Support is proud to announce its appointment for the operation and management of the first-ever Fixed-base Operators (FBOs) in Oman. Awarded by the Oman Airports Management Company (OAMC), the agreement will see Jetex develop two new FBOs at Muscat International Airport (MCT/OOMS) and Salalah International Airport (SLL/OOSA) respectively. The official signing will take place this Sunday at the Jetex FBO Terminal on the opening day of Dubai Airshow 2017, between Jetex CEO & President, Adel Mardini and Sheikh Aimen Al Hosni, CEO of Oman Airports.
Jetex is renowned for delivering end-to-end trip support solutions to customers worldwide, including FBOs, ground handling, trip planning, fuel and bespoke concierge services. The appointment of Jetex as the first and only provider of FBO services in Oman is testament to its exceptional track record in the business aviation industry, and further strengthens its reputation as a pioneer in its field.
Oman Airports CEO Sheikh Aimen Al Hosni said, “Jetex was chosen based on strict criteria with regard to quality and commitment to hospitality and reception that we are aiming to provide at our new airports in Salalah and Muscat. The Company provided the best presentation and has qualified to win the contract for the coming 10 years. We hope that this step will boost the level of VIP services at the new Muscat International Airport and at Salalah International Airport, which in turn will take us closer to our strategic goal in 2020 to become among the top 20 airports in the world.”
With Oman emerging as a key strategic aviation hub in the GCC market, the Muscat and Salalah airports have a combined capacity to handle 22 million travelers per annum.
Operating from the airports’ general aviation terminals, the newly-furbished FBOs are expected to open soon, providing an exceptional VIP experience for travelers. As with all Jetex FBOs, the hallmarks of the guest journey in Oman will include greater convenience, outstanding amenities, and highly attentive ground handling and hospitality teams.
Adel Mardini, CEO & President said, “Jetex is delighted to be at the forefront of a new era for business aviation in Oman. We take great pride in the quality and expertise of our team, who strive to deliver best-in-class experiences at all times. Oman is a crucial market for us in the region, and marks another milestone in our growth.”
The new facilities join the flagship Jetex FBO Terminal in Dubai, heralding Jetex’s further expansion in the GCC region.
Mardini continued, “Together with Oman Airports Management Company, we look forward to pursuing further opportunities to enhance the Omani business aviation experience. It is our goal to provide clients access to unparalleled levels of service and discretion throughout the GCC and beyond.”
