Abu Dhabi, the UAE
Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE, has long been an established hub for private aviation. One of the seven constituent states of the UAE, Abu Dhabi is not only the largest emirate but also the most populous, with a prosperous oil based economy contributing to high levels of domestic wealth and investment.
Situated as it is, mid way between Europe and the numerous emerging markets of Asia, Abu Dhabi is a natural hub for billions of dollars of trade and business that flows between the two continents and the middle east. It is also an important port of call for private traffic heading between Australasia and European destinations.
The volume of aviation traffic has been growing year on year, with 22% growth in the number of summer flights scheduled to depart from Abu Dhabi International Airport (IATA: AUH) this year as compared to 2014. The volume of private aviation traffic has also increased steadily, particularly since the inauguration of Al Bateen Executive Airport (IATA: AZI).
Al Bateen is a dedicated business jet and private jet airport, on the site of what was a military airfield up until 2008. It is located only 12 km’s outside of the centre of the city of Abu Dhabi itself, and is served by an exceptional FBO in Dhabijet FBO services. Dhabijet provides a luxurious executive terminal, meeting and conference rooms, secure private parking, and efficient transition from arrival through to departure.
Abu Dhabi Al Bateen airport does see a number of regular annual spikes in terms of the number of aircraft movements – these usually occur in tandem with large international events such as the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and the Abu Dhabi Air Expo.
