DC Aviation Al-Futtaim and UAS International Trip Support Enter Strategic Ground Handling Agreement

Global ITP UAS International Trip Support and business jet operator DC Aviation Al-Futtaim (DCAF) have entered an agreement to provide ground handling.


Dubai, United Arab Emirates, May 24, 2016: Global ITP UAS International Trip Support and business jet operator DC Aviation Al-Futtaim (DCAF) have entered an agreement to provide ground handling.

UAS appointed DCAF as their preferred ground handler to provide hangar parking and FBO handling at its facility at Al Maktoum International Airport (OMDW) located at Dubai South.

DCAF is the only integrated hangar and VVIP lounge facility in Dubai South providing the highest levels of comfort and privacy. Due to the FBO’s unique location at OMDW, there is minimal distance from drop-off to the aircraft steps thereby ensuring UAS clients benefit from the highest levels of convenience while arriving or departing. Additionally, DCAF also provides aircraft management, maintenance, FBO and ground handling services as well as business jet charter.

This agreement with DCAF means that UAS clients can now access the highest quality hangarage, technical support, and other handling facilities in addition to extensive personalized service, improved response time and more competitive rates in OMDW.

“This agreement ensures our clients get the most superior handling and services at Al Maktoum,” says Omar Hosari, UAS Co-Founder and CEO. “This is a great partnership because both UAS and DC Aviation Al-Futtaim prioritize the fundamental importance of excellence in all we do and at every level of service delivery,” he added.

“At DCAF we continually strive to improve our service levels to meet the ever growing demands of our customers. We place the customer as the focal point of everything we do and this has been our philosophy from day one,” said Holger Ostheimer, General Manager of DC Aviation Al-Futtaim. “We are extremely pleased to bring on board UAS a global trip support company and look forward to providing their clients with the highest levels of service,” he added.
