Record breaking Sharjah FBO
Sharjah keeps on climbing
Our FBO at Sharjah is breaking all records at the moment and that looks set to continue. Since our new strategic alignment to focus on defined core markets our local Business Avaition team led by MD Janine Tombs and with Tom Murphy heading the FBO Services, our FBO has seen record volumes.
In our time based in Sharjah our record volume month was April 2018, however we have already eclipsed those levels twice in 2021. March 2021 was 5% higher than the previous record and May bettered those figures by 20%. It is also looking like June 2021 will further raise the bar.
This confirms the widely held market view that demand is there and that there will be a condsiderable and ongoing growth in demand. According to the most recent WingXLive data the general market has seen growth figures of 67.5% PTD Growth in Flights, with 64% of that being in the business jet marketplace. The PTD Flight growth in the Middle East is stated at 88.8%
Tom Murphy Head of FBO Services states
Our FBO’s first half of 2021 is on track to generate more than a 70% increase in traffic compared to pre-pandemic volumes. COVID has brought a number of new business jet travelers to the market and that along with operators broadening their FBO options has produced fantastic results for our facility in Sharjah
