Within the facility, there's an exclusive lounge area spanning 1,300 square meters, designed to offer utmost comfort and privacy, featuring amenities such as shower areas, a spacious conference room, covered parking, and modern interiors. Reflecting its commitment to customers, DCAF recently finalized the renovation of its exterior and VVIP lounges. Customers can anticipate exceptional convenience, including 24-hour on-site screening services, customs and immigration facilities, and seamless access from limousine drop-off directly to the aircraft, parked conveniently in front of the lounge.Michael Kuhn, CEO of DC Aviation Group, said, "This is a significant milestone for all of us at DC Aviation and further reaffirms our decision to partner with Al-Futtaim, with whom we have a long-standing relationship. This joint venture has enabled us to create one of the leading business aviation operations in the Middle East and we look forward to continuing to expand our operations and offering our customers the highest levels of service and safety. We look forward to meeting all our industry partners, suppliers and customers at the celebratory party in Dubai".
