Since 2007 XJet has been operating its award-winning XJet Club and FBO at Denver’s Centennial Airport, opening up the facility to transient customers in 2009. The facility offers “seven-star” service that has ranked the FBO top for two years running in AIN’s U.S. FBO Survey service provider category. Now, that service is to be extended to a new base at Dubai’s Al Maktoum International Airport, part of the huge Dubai World Central (DWC) development.
On May 15 XJet founder and CEO Josh Stewart signed a 10-year lease agreement with H.H. Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman of DWC and president of Dubai’s Department of Civil Aviation. DWC is building a world-class terminal at Dubai Aviation City, and under the agreement XJet will establish an exclusive club and FBO service to capitalize on the expected doubling of private jet movements through the airport within the next five years.
XJet has committed to ultimately moving its headquarters to the United Arab Emirates as it grows the company’s footprint in the Middle East.
