DC Aviation Al-Futtaim to expand operations at Dubai South
posted on Jan 5, 2016
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, January 05, 2015: DC Aviation Al-Futtaim has announced the expansion of its operations at its home base at Al Maktoum International Airport following the recent announcement at the Dubai Airshow from its joint venture partner – Al-Futtaim, to lease an additional 10,000sqm of land from Dubai South.
The new plot will drastically increase the operational potential of DCAF – the first and only integrated private and business aviation operator at AMIA, enabling the company to expand its existing VIP lounge and hangar facility in order to keep up with growing demand for its services.
Holger Ostheimer, General Manager of DC Aviation Al-Futtaim said, “The recent increase in demand for our services as well as Dubai Airport’s decision to transition all corporate and private aviation activities to Al Maktoum International Airport has encouraged Al-Futtaim to committing to signing this lease deal. This agreement will ensure that DCAF will remain the number one service provider for business and private jet operations in Aviation District at Dubai South.”
The expansion will more than double the hangar capacity as well as enable DCAF to add two single aisle aircraft maintenance bays and provide for enough space for an additional workshop and equipment storage.
DCAF is a joint venture between Al-Futtaim and Germany’s DC Aviation. Its core areas of business include: Aircraft management, Maintenance, FBO and Ground Handling and Business jet charter.
The existing DCAF hangar measures 5,700sqm and can easily accommodate multiple ACJ or BBJ type aircraft, ultra-long range business jets such as the Falcon 7X, Global Express or Gulfstream G650. Located in a prime position just off the airport’s runway, the DCAF hanger and 7,700sqm dedicated ramp parking enables 24-7 support, maintenance services and operation of private and businesses jets of all sizes.
