CASABLANCA, MOROCCO (May 20th, 2016)
Jetex is the winner of the Moroccan National Airports Authority (ONDA) FBO tender, and will launch five new fixed base operator (FBO) facilities in Casablanca Mohammed V (CMN/GMMN), Marrakech Menara (RAK/GMMX), Rabat-Salé (RBA/GMME), Agadir-Al Massira (AGA/GMAD), and Dakhla airports (VIL/GMMH). These new Moroccan facilities will be the first FBO operations within the country, ushering in a new era for both business aviation operators and travelers in the area. Swissport Executive Aviation was also awarded an FBO tender by ONDA and will be the only other provider of FBO services in Morocco.
“By partnering with Jetex, ONDA marks a new strategic step in the development of business aviation activity across Morocco’s Airports. Jetex is a global player in the industry, and these five new FBO installations will undeniably bring a significant improvement in hosting and handling passengers across business aviation,” said Zouhair Mohammed El Aoufir, CEO of ONDA.
“Jetex is proud to partner with ONDA to revolutionize Morocco’s business aviation industry with its first FBO facility,” said Adel Mardini, CEO and President of Jetex. “We aim to provide world-class bespoke luxury services and create a memorable travel experience for our valued guests while offering new business aviation routes to meet the needs of this rapidly growing market”.
With countrywide coverage, these new Moroccan FBOs offer an intricate network of locations that will be designed to accommodate all types of business aircraft and provide ample parking space at each FBO facility.
Projected business aviation movements are expected to rise annually, further solidifying Morocco as the gateway to Africa.s
