The second edition of the MEBAA Show Morocco, taking place at its new location in Marrakech Menara Airport from 12-13 September, is solidifying its reputation as the place to be for business aviation in the region, with more high profile exhibitors committing to the event.

Industry leader Bell Helicopter has confirmed it will be exhibiting at the event, alongside Swissport Executive Aviation, SEA Prime and G Ops, while silver sponsor Gulfstream has announced it will be exhibiting an as yet undisclosed aircraft for the static display.

Africa is forecast to receive 200 aircraft deliveries valued at seven billion US dollars over the next ten years, with over 80% of these predicted to be in the light or medium categories, according to the Bombardier Business Aircraft, Market Forecast: 2016 – 2025. The same report notes that historic average economic growth in the region has been 4.4%, while predicting compound annual fleet growth of 3.2%.

Ali Alnaqbi, founding and executive chairman of the Middle East & North Africa Business Aviation Association (MEBAA), said, “We are looking forward to the second edition of the MEBAA Show Morocco, in its new location at Marrakech Menara Airport. As the first business aviation show in North Africa, the MEBAA Show Morocco is ideally placed to offer exhibitors an opportunity to be part of the region's industry growth.”

Adel Mardini, CEO and president of Jetex Flight Support, explained why the company is keen to be part of the MEBAA Show Morocco: “Morocco is the key destination for a large number of our customers, especially European clients, and it is a high traffic market for both business and leisure private aviation travel. Jetex Flight Support has now been awarded five destinations in Morocco. We are very proud of the support we have received from the Moroccan government.”

He continued, “Marrakech is a key destination in north Africa. It is stable and ideally situated for both European and Middle East customers. We are looking forward to promoting our FBO and concierge services at the MEBAA Show Morocco and are proud to have been selected by F&E Aerospace and MEBAA as the official handler for this fast growing event.”

The MEBAA Show Morocco is organised by F&E Aerospace on behalf of the Middle East & North Africa Business Aviation Association (MEBAA) and will take place 12-13 September at Marrakech Menara Airport, with the MEBAA Conference taking place the day before, 11 September at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel.
