ahrain-based charter operator Bexair has been granted an aircraft operator’s certificate in Saudi Arabia. The company established a subsidiary in Riyadh last year and it is now aiming to secure long-term charter contracts from Saudi customers.

Initially, the Saudi AOC will apply to one of Bexair’s Bombardier Challenger 605 jets, but it intends to add other aircraft. The company is also active in aircraft management and has its own FBO in Bahrain. Its current fleet consists of seven aircraft.

Separately, Bexair’s parent company, Arabian Support and Services Company, has established a joint venture with Middle East ground-handling group Arabasco to design and build aircraft shelters for use at airports in Riyadh and Jeddah under a $105 million contract. At each airport the shelters (see below) will house more than 30 business and VIP aircraft up to the size of an Airbus A380.
