Business Aviation operators, pilots, and plane lovers are gearing up for another exciting edition of the MEBAA Show in Morocco. September 25-26, 2019 will be the fifth consecutive year that the Middle East and North Africa Business Aviation (MEBAA) collaborate on this special event. The show will be hosted at the Marrakech Menara Airport and introduce new airline crafts that have chosen to premiere at the exhibit. Among them will be the new Hawkers 900 XP from Sarah Airways. When asked about why he choose to launch the luxury craft at MEEBA, company CEO Khalid Serghat expressed, “As stated by his Majesty Mohammed VI King of Morocco, Morocco and Africa are big markets with huge potential, and Morocco is situated geographically in a strategic position serving Africa, Europe, and the Middle East.”
Other companies to be seen at the show include luxury airlines Carthage Sky Services and Jetex. CEOs of each company commented that the growing interest of operators and industry players in the MEBAA area makes Morocco attractive. Adel Mardini, CEO of Jetex, went on to say that “an increase of private jets in Morocco has resulted in more demand for exclusive FBO terminals and private flight support services. We’re incredibly positive about the Morocco market which is demonstrated by our network of four terminals in Agadir, Rabat, Marrakech, and Casablanca,” said Mardini. Mordor Intelligence reported that the jet market is expected to reach $19.95bn globally by 2024.
Other industry leaders exhibiting at the MEBAA Show Morocco will be Dassault, Bell and Swissport Aviation. Milano Prime will also return for their third year. In the coming weeks, they will introduce new business and general aviation terminal at Milan Malpensa. It will be linked with Morocco.
