DC Aviation, Germany’s leading operator of business jets, is present from the 7th to 9th of December with a VVIP Airbus Corporate Jet at the MEBA (Middle East Business Aviation) trade show in Dubai. Michael Kuhn, CEO of DC Aviation affirms: “The Middle East is an extremely vibrant and promising market for us. We ascertain a growing demand for long-haul
flights and our spacious corporate jets. With our three new VVIP aircraft, we want to offer customers in the region more highly customised charter services.”
It was only in the early summer that the German market leader extended its fleet with three new VVIP Airbus A319 CJ aircraft, but already it ranks as one of the largest operators of this type of aircraft in the world, now with four Airbus corporate jets. In addition to the corporate jets, the company utilises its long-haul fleet of Gulfstream and
Global Express for charter flights out of the region.DC Aviation is now present at the annual MEBA regional trade show for the third time in a row. “For us the show is an excellent contact platform to initiate a dialogue with potential customers. This year we are especially keen to present our new acquisition, the VVIP Airbus, because this aircraft type attracts great interest,” explained Kuhn.
According to a study in January 2010 by Frost & Sullivan, the Middle East presently represents six percent of the global business aviation market. The analysts also predict an annual growth rate of six percent in flying activities. In contrast to Europe, a greater proportion of the more wealthy individuals in the Middle East fly by business jet. Frost & Sullivan estimate that by 2012 there will be around 700,000 persons of
high net worth in the Middle East.
