Jetex plays host to Breitling world record-setting classic DC-3
One of the world's most iconic aircraft will take to the skies today from Al Maktoum International Airport at Dubai South (formerly Dubai World Central)
The classic 1930s Douglas DC-3, owned and operated by Swiss luxury watchmaker and aviation chronograph specialist, Breitling, has been based at the Jetex FBO terminal at the airport for the past four days.
The Breitling DC-3 is currently on a world tour and Jetex has been supplying a full range of ground support services for the aircraft and crew during the four-day stop
“We are delighted to be a part of history in the making as the Breitling DC-3 establishes itself as the oldest plane to circumnavigate the globe,” said Adel Mardini, CEO and President of Jetex. “ This partnership underlines our shared commitment and passion for the aviation industry, and the Jetex promise of delivering the highest standards of service,”
Catering specifically to private, business and government VIP travellers, the Jetex terminal operates 24/7 and offers round-the-clock customs clearance. It is the largest facility in Jetex’s global portfolio, and has the distinction of being the first IS-BAH certified FBO in Dubai.
