Posted 14 September 2017 · Add Comment

After two days of business, networking and sales, the MEBAA Show Morocco ended on a high today at the Marrakech Menara Airport.

“During our second time exhibiting at the MEBAA Show Morocco, we were thrilled to meet HE Mr. Mohammed Sajid, Minister of Tourism, Air Transport, Crafts and Social Economy” said Mohammed El Masaoudi, CEO Air Ocean Maroc. “We were pleased to have the opportunity to speak to him face to face and discuss Morocco’s business aviation industry”.

“The second edition of the MEBAA Show Morocco has been an amazing success,” says Ali Alnaqbi, Founding & Executive Chairman of the Middle East & North Africa Business Aviation Association (MEBAA). “With the move to Marrakech Menara Airport, we have seen a larger contingent of visitors from Morocco and further around the region. This growth has been reflected in the quality of networking opportunities and business done at the event.”

Among those supporting the show were sponsors Bombardier and Gulfstream, plus a number of exhibitors from Morocco and further afield. The static display of the latest business aircraft featured a Gulfstream G550 and a Bombardier Challenger 650, both of which were popular with visitors keen to tour the onboard facilities.

Morocco is high traffic market for both business and leisure private aviation travel, and benefits from an ideal geographic location, governmental industry support and political stability, making it an ideal for development into an aviation hub.

“We are proud to have been involved in the second edition of the MEBAA Show Morocco,” said Zouhair El Aoufir, CEO of Office National des Aeroports (ONDA). He continued, “And of course we are already looking forward to the next edition in 2019 as we work towards encouraging the aviation industry as a whole to grow across Morocco and beyond.”

The MEBAA Show Morocco was held under the high patronage of His Majesty King Mohammed VI. The MEBAA Show Morocco 2019 will take place at Marrakech Menara Airport from 17-18 September 2019.
