Dubai Airshow: Sky Prime soars in Saudi

Posted 14 November 2017 · Add Comment

Rapid growth in 2017 has taken Saudi Arabia's Sky Prime to top spot among the Middle East's charter firms, claims the Riyadh-based operator.

Now in its second year, Sky Prime, headed by Salem Abaid Al-Muzaini, reported at the Dubai Airshow that it has achieved 40% growth in charter flights, 25% in flying hours and 20% more elite clients, naking it the number one operator in the region.

Six new top-end business jets were added to Sky Prime's fleet, including Airbus, Gulfstream and Embraer aircraft of different sizes. The company has also been investing in ground-handling services.

"We are extremely proud of what we have achieved during 2017," said a spokesman. "We work effortlessly to meet growing expectations and aspirations for a diverse range of customers, while understanding the need for privacy and reasonable, fixed prices.

"We forecast that the Saudi market will remain one of largest for private aviation across 2018 and our goal is to continue to grow Sky Prime as a leader throughout this region and globally across the next year."
