Monday 14th May 2012

Geneva, Switzerland: During its participation at the annual European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) being held in Geneva from 14th to 16th May, Al Bateen Executive Airport announced the completion of refurbishment works for three hangars at its facilities in Abu Dhabi.

The refurbishment works include structural, mechanical and floor works as well as upgraded back-office and workshop facilities.

The first phase of the refurbishment program at Al Bateen Executive Airport covers a total space of 7,500 square metres, of which 50% has already been committed to new and existing Al Bateen customers, representing an investment of US$5 million.

This project is a key part of Al Bateen's strategy to expand and upgrade facilities to satisfy the demand for aircraft parking, based operator and maintenance services at the airport as more and more customers choose the convenience of flying in to and out of an airport that focuses on providing tailored service and solutions.

The plans for the refurbishment works are progressing in parallel with the roll-out of the free zone at Al Bateen to facilitate the establishment of company registration services along with all associated benefits of the free zone.

Yousif Al Hammadi, Acting General Manager at Al Bateen executive Airport, commented: "Al Bateen Executive Airport was inaugurated in 2008 as the first dedicated business aviation airport for the region with a mandate to develop and lead this dynamic industry. The delivery today of three newly refurbished hangars is another key milestone in Al Bateen's strategy to provide world class services and facilities for the business aviation community."

"A number of projects are running in parallel and the refurbishment works have been planned and are being executed to deliver the needed infrastructure that is crucial for launching the free zone at Al Bateen Executive Airport this year," added Al Hammadi.

EBACE is the premier annual meeting place for the European business aviation community. This three-day event features Exhibits, an incredible Static Display of Aircraft, Education Sessions and Maintenance & Operations Sessions (M&Os) - all located at the magnificent Palexpo and Geneva International Airport.
