Dubai South VIP Terminal sees rapid 336% increase in private jet movements in Q1 2021


The Mohamed ben Rashid Aerospace Hub (MBRAH) in Dubai South announced that private jet movements continued their impressive growth in 2021 with an increase of 336 percent in the first quarter of 2021, reaching 4,904 compared to 1,460 in the first quarter of 2020 and 1,676 in the first quarter of 2019.

The aircraft movements include the four FBOs operating at MBRAH, namely Jetex Executive Aviation, Jet Aviation, DC Aviation, and ExecuJet Middle East.

Mohamed ben Rashid Aerospace Hub CEO Tahnoon Seif said: “Our private jet movements at the MBRAH VIP terminal have been steadily increasing since last July, which is a testament to the success of the national vaccination campaign, the emirate’s status as a preferred destination for tourists from around the world, as well as Dubai’s ranking as the third-largest city in the world and second in the ‘Major Cities’ category in the recent FDI Global Cities of the Future 2021/2022 report as a magnet for foreign direct investment (FDI). We look forward to maintaining the momentum of aircraft movements as Dubai prepares to host the world at Expo 2020 in October.”

MBRAH provides global aerospace players with high-level connectivity and is a free zone destination for leading private jet companies and associated industries.

Located at and developed by Dubai South, MBRAH also houses maintenance centers as well as training and education campuses and seeks to strengthen engineering industries.
