Falcon Aviation Services has launched one of the world’s biggest regular business-aviation services, ferrying 400 oil workers daily from its Al Bateen base in Abu Dhabi to two facilities on islands off the coast of the emirate.

Falcon will use two Bombardier Q400 aircraft to transport employees from the refurbished Sheikh Zayed terminal at the city centre airport to Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company’s sites at Das Island and Zirku Island. There will be three daily flights on each of the turboprops.

“This is a momentous achievement for Falcon, as we had a short timeframe in which to set up and deliver this service,” says chief operating officer Capt Ramandeep Oberoi.
