doubles workforce to meet Middle East demand
Posted: 2 March 2004
Increases staff by almost 240 per cent
ExecuJet Middle East, a leading business aviation services company
and part of the global ExecuJet Aviation Group, has completed the
first stage of its aggressive expansion plan by more than doubling
the number of employees working in the region.
The company has recruited 26 people within six months, bringing
the total headcount to 45, and positioning it as the best resourced
full-service business aviation company in the Middle East.
Two of the main growth areas within the company have been ExecuJet’s
maintenance and operations divisions, as the company looks to recruit
a pool of aviation expertise that will enable it to extend its charter
activities and expand the range of services offered to business
jet operators in the region. Key activities supported by these two
divisions include ground handling, flight planning, and aircraft
“Over the last six months, ExecuJet has expanded its team
in the Middle East, making new additions across all departments,
as part of a phased strategy for growth. We’re confident that
we now have one of the strongest offerings for business aviation
customers on the market,” said Horm Irani, managing director
ExecuJet Middle East.
As well as bolstering its Dubai-based operations, ExecuJet has
also strengthened its presence in Abu Dhabi, Riyadh and Cairo.
Demand for ExecuJet’s complete set of aviation services has
seen business increase over the last 12 months, as more travelers
look to the reliability, convenience, and safety of private jet
travel. In addition to the new human resources recruited, ExecuJet
has also added new aircraft to its charter fleet in recent months,
including a Bombardier Global Express and a Pilatus PC-12.
One of the mid-term goals of ExecuJet’s expansion plan is
to ensure that the company has sufficient resources to staff its
dedicated aircraft service centre and spare parts depot, currently
under construction at Dubai International Airport. The 28,000-square-foot
(2,600-sq-m) service center, being built in partnership with Bombardier
Aerospace, will feature two maintenance bays capable of accommodating
two Bombardier Global Express ultra long-range business jets at
the same time. When fully operational, the facility will provide
full-time employment for almost 60 staff and specialists.
