Jet Aviation has secured a Part 125 operator’s certificate from Saudi Arabia’s General Authority of Civil Aviation. The certification is now required for all privately operated business jets based in the kingdom—the result of International Civil Aviation Organization recommendations for safe flight operations.
Switzerland-based Jet Aviation has operated in Saudi Arabia for more than 40 years and currently manages more than 60 aircraft in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. In Saudi Arabia, Jet Aviation operates FBOs in Jeddah—its first FBO there, established in 1979—Riyadh, Medina, and Yanbu. All of its FBOs except the one in Yanbu are IS-BAH Stage 2 registered. Yanbu is Jet Aviation's newest and carries an IS-BAH Stage 1 registration that it earned in December.
“Our top priority at Jet Aviation is the safety of our customers, partners, employees, and site visitors,” said Jet Aviation Saudi Arabia general manager Khaled Al-Ghamdi. “We also strive to offer our services as close to demand as possible. This Part 125 certificate both recognizes our high standards and demonstrates our commitment to customers in the region.”
