Dubai-based private aviation services company Empire Aviation Group (EAG; Static S4) signed an agreement Tuesday at MEBAA 2022 with the Mohammed bin Rashid Aerospace Hub (MBRAH) at Dubai South to develop a new, multi-purpose business aviation facility adjacent to the site’s VIP Terminal.
EAG will own, manage and operate the facility, which it will also fully finance, with work due to start next year and completion expected in 2024. The mixed-use facility will include EAG’s new global corporate headquarters, as well as operations control and CAMO for all group operations and a crew check-in and briefing area. The scheme also caters to premium office space for aviation and related companies, luxury retail food and beverage outlets, and a rooftop lounge for events and entertainment.
“Since 2007, Empire Aviation has been focusing on business aviation with a mission to increase corporate use of private jets for business travel and we have developed into a truly global business,” said EAG founder and managing director Paras Dhamecha. “The facility will meet the super high-quality standards expected in Dubai and support MBRAH’s vision to make Dubai the aviation capital of the world.”
“We are pleased to sign this agreement with Empire Aviation Group, a renowned name in the industry providing integrated private aviation services to clients,” said MBRAH CEO Tahnoon Saif. “This agreement reiterates our mandate to attract the top players in the industry to establish their presence at MBRAH and benefit from our ecosystem to connect with global markets. We look forward to working closely with Empire Aviation and assisting them in all their business needs.”
