ExecuJet expands its Middle East activities, adding a Global 6000 and a Global 7500 to the regional fleet. The Global 6000, which joined the fleet in February 2021 for a Turkish client, is based at Istanbul’s Atta Turk International Airport. The new Global 7500, which joined the fleet in December 2020 to become the first Global 7500 in the Middle East and the third aircraft of its kind in the Group, is based under private operations at Al Maktoum International Airport.

Mike Berry, ExecuJet’s president aviation services and vice president Middle East, says: “The Global 6000 is an outstanding aircraft for work or relaxation and the Global 7500 is simply one of the world’s leading large, long-range business jets.”

The fleet growth supports a rising level of business at the fixed-base operations (FBOs) run by ExecuJet in the Middle East.

Berry adds: “Movements are rising at our FBOs at Dubai International Airport and Dubai World Central Airport, a trend that began in late 2020. Most of that travel is international with a number of flights from Russia, UK and across Europe. We’re naturally adhering to strict guidelines in the fight against COVID-19 and operating stringent health and safety measures across Luxaviation Group, but our Middle East FBO activity proves growth is possible, even now. We’re seeing signs of real market recovery.

“And many people who could always have afforded to fly privately, but chose not to or only did so occasionally, are now fully embracing the experience to stay safe during the pandemic. We’re receiving many enquiries from potential new owners.”
