DC Aviation Al-Futtaim (DCAF), a joint venture between Dubai-based Al-Futtaim group and Germany’s DC Aviation, has confirmed the opening of its second hangar on the inaugural day (November 12) of the Dubai Airshow.

The 7,500sqm hangar will more than double the hangar capacity bringing its total land-side plot area to 24,000sqm and apron area to 13,000sqm. The new hangar will enable DCAF to add two single-aisle aircraft maintenance bays and provide enough space for an additional workshop and equipment storage. It will also significantly increase the number and size of aircraft that can be accommodated at the facility. The new hangar will also see, DCAF further expand its maintenance services.

Holger Ostheimer, Managing Director of DC Aviation Al-Futtaim said, “We are excited to be opening our second hangar during the Dubai Airshow. Since commencing operations in November 2013, we have seen our business grow steadily year-on-year. With the new hangar, we will be able to meet the growing demand for business and private jet operations in the Aviation District at Dubai South for years to come.”

We look forward to showcasing our unique luxury services and VIP lounges offering immediate access to client aircraft and absolute discrete and maximum privacy.
