- New aerospace hub already 35 per cent complete
The Mohammed bin Rashid Aerospace Hub, an integrated global aviation center providing world-class infrastructure and aviation support facilities, has drawn high interest from fellow participants and visitors from all over the world at the ongoing Dubai Airshow. MBR Aerospace Hub joined the exhibition, which is currently running until November 21, 2019, to highlight its unique edge and features that are vital to the steadily rising aviation industries in Dubai and the UAE.
During the airshow, MBR Aerospace Hub, which is located within Dubai South, is showcasing its top-notch services and facilities, including a wide range of world-class soft and hard infrastructure to meet the needs of Business Aviation and Aerospace Industry. The capacity of business aviation facilities within MBR Aerospace Hub, which currently handles more than 70 per cent of private jet movements in Dubai, is expected to increase with the expected completion of the new aircraft hangers in 2021. Through MBR Aerospace Hub, industry players and operators will have access to key regional and global markets.
Tahnoon Saif, CEO, MBR Aerospace Hub, said: “MBR Aerospace Hub is a global aerospace facility with a fully dedicated commercial strip. We provide business travelers and private jet owners, among others, with customized services to ensure their expectations. These services include a dedicated fuel farm with 20-minute response time, high-quality catering services, and maintenance facilities. At Dubai Airshow, interest in the aerospace hub and its offerings is high. Many visitors are coming to our stand daily to engage with our team and learn more about our value proposition.”
More importantly, as supply chain is critical to the growing MRO market and the aviation industry as a whole, the MBR Aerospace Supply Chain Zone with dedicated Supply Chain Building and Suppliers Complex is being built to provide a range of aviation-related services. The complex is set to offer key opportunities and advantages for companies that provide support services; operations; maintenance, repair and overhaul, and supply of aircrafts parts; chartering; and fleet management.
Apart from an education and training cluster for aircraft repair and maintenance technicians, a business area will soon rise at MBR Aerospace Hub to house offices and retail stores. Located near the luxury VIP Terminal, the new area will be home to aircraft management, air services, financial, legal, and insurance companies and other relevant institutions that are seeking to set up their headquarters and branches in Dubai.
More than 1,300 exhibitors and 87,000 aviation professionals are part of the five-day Dubai Airshow, one of the largest aviation exhibitions in the world. As one of the leading exhibitors from the UAE this year, MBR Aerospace Hub also highlights how it is creating an ideal and integrated environment with free zone status for the industry.
