Jetex has opened its first VIP Terminal in North Africa to beef up its presence in the region and position itself to capitalise on the expanding African business aviation market.
The new terminal was opened at Jetex’s existing FBO site at Marrakech Menara Airport.
Jetex’s new VIP Terminal is an exclusive space spanning 1,000 square meters and designed to offer an enhanced travel experience. The terminal is designed to feel private and confidential.
Furnished with designer pieces by Zaha Hadid, the facility is complemented by 25,000 square meters of aircraft parking.
Since first establishing its presence in Morocco as a fixed-base operator (FBO) in 2016, the company has already brought the Jetex experience to Casablanca, Agadir and Rabat.
The new flagship Jetex VIP Terminal in Marrakech brings the company’s total number of African locations to 16, including six FBOs.
Each year, Morocco sees more than 10,000 private jet movements, making it one of the most important markets in Africa, while the Middle East and North African region is expected to see around 175,000 business aircraft movements in 2020.
Adel Mardini, CEO of Jetex, said: “We anticipate private aviation in Africa to continue its rapid growth. We want Jetex to help usher in that growth and better serve the market’s increasing needs.”
