Al Bateen Executive Airport, the Middle East’s first dedicated business aviation airport operated by Abu Dhabi Airports Company, announced today the opening of its new crew lounge, part of the DhabiJet FBO brand. The contemporary designed facility is now fully operational and offers flight crew a comprehensive and state-of-the-art flight planning support facility that meets all their needs and requirements when they stop at the executive airport ahead of, after or in between flights.
Within a two floor complex, the new facility combines work areas, to carry out crew briefings and flight planning, with lounge areas, to refresh and relax. The top floor is occupied by Al Bateen’s flight operations department and a briefing room. The ground floor is entirely dedicated to crew, featuring a lounge area with satellite TV, snooze room, work stations, meeting room, shower facility and a prayer room.
Commenting on this completion, Steve Jones, General Manager of Al Bateen Executive Airport said: “The opening of the fully dedicated crew lounge as part of the DhabiJet FBO is a major milestone for Al Bateen Executive Airport. The Airport was eager to have the lounge up and running in time for the Formula 1 which provided a fully integrated suite of support services to visiting crew offering them the ultimate in privacy, convenience and comfort along with a live F1 TV broadcasts.”
