ExecuJet is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its FBO facility at Dubai International Airport this month.

In 2007, the FBO was opened as a shared, single lounge facility, with a team of four ExecuJet employees who supported the operation of up to three flights a week. Today, ExecuJet's FBO at Dubai International Airport is home to eight passenger lounges and 49 ExecuJet staff who have overseen up to 1,090 aircraft movements in a single month.

The state-of-the-art FBO has a range of premium facilities on-site including luxury lounges with landside access, a duty free shop and a prayer room. It offers an array of services from ground handling and flight planning, to hotel bookings and assistance with customs and immigration.

Dumani Ndebele, regional FBO manager, ExecuJet Middle East, says: “We are proud to reach such a momentous milestone at our Dubai International Airport facility. Any anniversary is special, but 10 years is quite something and it is testament to the outstanding service we provide, not only at this FBO, but across the Luxaviation Group's global network of facilities.

“The credit must go to our staff who go above-and-beyond the call of duty in providing excellent customer service and expertise, which is what attracts customers in the first place. A big thank you is also due to those customers, as, without their continuous loyalty, we would not have achieved the success that we see today.”

ExecuJet has managed a second FBO in the region, located at Al Maktoum International Airport, since June 2016. The purpose-built 600 sqm facility has four VIP lounges, a crew lounge, two transit lounges, washrooms and showers, a prayer room and onsite customs and immigration.
