Abu Dhabi Airports, the operator of the emirate’s five airports, will work with executive aviation services specialist Jetex at Al Bateen Executive Airport (ABEA).

Jetex will assume responsibility for managing daily business services under a Fixed Based Operator (FBO) contract, upgrading key infrastructure within the VIP and VVIP terminals and ensuring passengers enjoy better travel experiences.

Expansion work was completed at Al Bateen Executive Airport in 2022. This involved the resurfacing and widening of the existing 3.2km runway to accommodate widebody aircrafts, in addition to upgraded ground lighting, enhanced signage and landscape to meet the highest levels of safety, compliance and accreditation. Over the coming months, Jetex will redesign and further upgrade the FBO facilities to ensure that the airport is equipped to meet current and future sustainability requirements. Passengers traveling via Jetex Abu Dhabi will have access to several spacious private lounges  and will benefit from on-site immigration and customs support.

ABEA is the only airport in the Middle East dedicated to business aviation. Located in the heart of Abu Dhabi, it provides rapid access to Abu Dhabi’s key financial, tourist and entertainment destinations.

The agreement was made public during a signing ceremony held at Al Bateen Airport, signed from Abu Dhabi Airports’ side by their MD and CEO, Jamal Salem Al Dhaheri and Adel Mardini, founder and CEO of Jetex. Abu Dhabi will be the 38th destination in the Jetex global private jet terminal network.
