Aviation advisers on the up
posted on Nov 20, 2014
Helios, the global aviation consultancy, has expanded its team in the Middle East and moved to larger offices in Silicon Oasis, Dubai.
The company, part of the Egis group, announced the addition of principal consultant David Adebiyi, formerly with NATS consulting, to its Middle East consultancy team. In addition, two further consultants are relocating from Europe and the whole team is moving into substantially larger offices within Silicon Oasis.
Commenting on the news, Alan Corner, Helios’ director Middle East and Asia said: “We have had a base in Dubai for nearly 18 months now and we have had to find new premises for our growing team. We are co-located with parent company Egis, 20 of us in total, with a quarter dedicated to supporting aviation organisations in the region. Being on the doorstep has enabled us to develop stronger relationships with existing customers, and to win new business here too. We are anticipating continued growth over the coming months – with further postings from Europe alongside local recruitment.”
Since basing themselves in the Middle East, the company has worked for major airports, air navigation service providers and regulators throughout the region.
