The GCAA certified Al Bateen Executive Airport, the Gulf Region’s first and only dedicated private aviation airport, operated and managed by Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC), is taking the lead in promoting the UAE as the hub for business aviation in the region through announcing an attractive offer during the Etihad Airways’ Formula 1 Grand Prix season. The executive airport will provide landing and parking services free of charge to all executive jets arriving into Abu Dhabi between 10th and 14th November 2010.
The airport’s strategic location, providing business travellers with direct access to the central business district of the capital city, and a 15 minutes’ drive to the Yas Island, is the main benefit of this facility. Based operators at Al Bateen include Al Jaber Aviation, Falcon Aviation, Prestige Jet, and XO Jet.
“As the Chairman of the Middle East Business Aviation Association (MEBAA), I commend ADAC’s and Al Bateen Executive Airport’s commitment to this industry, and wish all business aviation personnel arriving at Al Bateen Executive Airport an exciting F1 viewing and very pleasant stay at Abu Dhabi.”
Yousef Al Hammadi, Deputy General Manager at Al Bateen Executive Airport, stated: “ADAC is continuously thriving to provide unmatched services to its niche clientele, guests and operators. The aim is to encourage clients to use Al Bateen Executive Airport as their travel hub of choice, based on the comfort and convenience we offer.”
