Jet Aviation’s new and improved 600 square-meter facility within the shared FBO terminal at Riyadh’s King Khalid International Airport is being re-designed and enhanced for customer comfort. The company expects the newly refurbished facility to be operational by the end of Q1 2020. Jet Aviation currently operates the largest FBO network in the Middle East.
Jet Aviation is celebrating its 40th Anniversary in Saudi Arabia this year, and to demonstrate its ongoing commitment to the region, the company is investing in a new state-of-the-art FBO facility location at King Khaled International Airport in Riyadh.
The newly designed facility is fully equipped to handle all types of aircraft. Amenities include a refreshment pantry and buffet, a large customer lounge, three VIP lounges (including a snooze room), a conference room, a duty-free shop, a prayer room, and weather and flight planning facilities. The facility also features an office located airside for handling and line crew. Jet Aviation plans to open the new facility for operation in Q1 2020.
“We look forward to moving to our newly refurbished FBO in the New Year,” said Khaled Al-Ghamdi, general manager of Jet Aviation in Saudi Arabia.
“The more spacious facility is designed to accommodate future traffic volume increases in Riyadh, while continuing to ensure the highest safety, comfort and design standards.”
Jet Aviation’s FBO services in Riyadh include passenger and baggage handling, immigration and customs clearance, transportation, hotel and catering coordination, aircraft refueling, interior deep cleaning, exterior wash and turnaround assistance. In addition to its network of facilities in Saudi Arabia, Jet Aviation operates FBOs at Dubai International Airport (DXB) and Dubai World Central (DWC) as well as an MRO facility at DXB that supports both FBOs and the wider region.
