Jet Aviation was twice honored at the tenth annual Middle East Aviation Business Awards ceremony recently held at the Conrad Hotel in Dubai, UAE. The company’s FBO at Dubai International Airport won the 2016 FBO of the Year Award, while its Dubai MRO facility was shortlisted in the MRO Service Provider of the Year (International) category.

Organized by magazine publisher ITP Business, the Middle East Aviation Business Awards are held annually to recognize “regional and international companies that stand out for having gone above and beyond in terms of their industry contribution,” says Walid Akawi, CEO of ITP Publishing Group. The 2016 awards covered 15 categories in total, including the airline, airport and cargo sectors, as well as the support services industry.

Jet Aviation established its FBO at Dubai International Airport in May 2005 to strengthen the company’s global network for its clientele in the Middle East. Since then, it has handled more than 25,000 aircraft arriving in Dubai from all over the world — and received numerous awards for its 24/7 domestic and international handling services. Earlier this year, it was voted Best FBO in the Middle East & Africa in the 2016 Professional Pilot PRASE Survey, the company’s 6th such honor.

“I am very proud and honored to accept this award on behalf of our team of handling professionals in Dubai,” said Philippe Gerard, senior director of Jet Aviation’s Dubai FBO. “We strive to distinguish our services by paying attention to the smallest of details to provide personalized service that is truly memorable.”

Vice President and General Manager of Jet Aviation’s Dubai operations Hardy Butschi added, “The Aviation Business Awards play an important role in promoting industry commitment to safety, quality and continuous improvement, which we at Jet Aviation are fully committed to.”
