Jetex is proud to be the handling partner of Swiss luxury watchmaker and aviation chronograph specialist, Breitling, during the UAE leg of the Breitling DC-3 World Tour. The flagship Jetex FBO Terminal, located at Al Maktoum International Airport, plays host to the Breitling DC-3 from the 21st to 24th March, 2017. Jetex will provide a full range of ground support services for the aircraft and crew during its four-day stop in Dubai.

"We are delighted to be a part of history in the making as the Breitling DC-3 establishes itself as the oldest plane to circumnavigate the globe. This partnership underlines our shared commitment and passion for the aviation industry, and the Jetex promise of delivering the highest standards of service," said Adel Mardini, CEO and President of Jetex.

Commenting on the DC-3 world tour, Aed Adwan, Breitling Middle East, said: "As a privileged partner of aviation, Breitling has demonstrated its commitment to safeguarding aeronautical heritage by supporting the restoration of legendary aircraft such as the Douglas DC-3, which is making an historic stop in Dubai on this record-breaking world tour."

The Jetex FBO Terminal will provide ground handling, aircraft fueling and trip planning services throughout the event. Featuring a 1,500m2 lounge, this unique facility shatters expectations by bringing upscale contemporary interior design and 5-star hospitality to the aviation arena.
