Monday 10th December 2018

AVIAÂ, the international group purchasing organisation (GPO) for business aviation is expanding its presence in the Middle East with the signing of a new preferred supplier partnership with Jetex, the leading international ground handling specialist in the region.

The partnership commences with exclusive savings on full business aircraft handling, through select FBOs in Jetex’s global network.

AVIAÂ Business Development Director Matt Smith signed the partner agreement with Adel Mardini, CEO and President of Jetex flight support, at its flagship VIP Dubai South, Dubai World Central Airport FBO on Sunday, 9th December, on the eve of the biannual MEBAA 2018 Show.

The agreement opens up a wealth of savings for AVIAÂ members, located primarily in the US and Europe, when using Jetex FBOs in the Middle East and selected European locations, including Paris, Barcelona, and Rome.
“We are delighted to be entering the exciting and prosperous Middle East region, in partnership with such a well respected and large business aviation player,” said Matt Smith.  “This is our first year attending MEBAA and we’re thrilled to be able to ratify the partnership here, in person, ahead of the region’s premier business aviation show.”
“This is a first for us to be working with an innovative disruptor like AVIAÂ.   We have seen the traction they have quickly built up with their membership in the US and Europe after just 18 months and are now pleased to be collaborating with them as a supplier partner.
We recognise it is a valuable path to help broaden and widen the Jetex offering among business aviation operators,” commented Adel Mardini.
Next week Jetex opens its second exclusive FBO in Oman, which will complement its flagship FBO at the VIP Private Jet Terminal in Dubai South.

AVIAÂ uses aggregation, transparency, industry expertise, and proprietary algorithms to streamline the procurement process for both operators and vendors. Through membership, operators of all sizes achieve improved business intelligence and economies of scale, allowing them to get the best value for key operational items; suppliers receive committed volume without the overhead, reduced friction costs around transactions, and deep insights into customer behavior and purchasing patterns. 

The business is headquartered in Orange County, California, with additional offices at London Oxford Airport and Park City, Utah.
Established by Hangar8 founder Dustin Dryden and GPO expert James Hall, AVIAÂ streamlines the procurement process for owners and operators using the collective buying power of its members to secure the best value for key operational services.
As well as helping private jet owners and operators better compete with companies who already benefit from economies of scale, the GPO model also rewards preferred suppliers, who see committed volume and reduced friction costs.
The business is headquartered in Irvine, California, and also has offices in the UK at London Oxford Airport.
