Al Bateen cuts landing fees by 35%
Al Bateen, the Abu Dhabi-based airport dedicated to private aviation, has cut landing fees by 35% and parking fees by 17%, effective now.
Abu Dhabi Airports Company, which runs Al Bateen, has also unveiled a model of the planned redevelopment of the airport.
“We created a lot of awareness at the recent Grand Prix by offering free landing and parking services which strengthened our belief in prioritising the offering of best levels of services at competitive prices,” said Stephen Jones, the airport’s general manager, who recently joined from London Oxford Airport.
“At the same time, Al Bateen is supporting the development of based operators and their rapidly growing aircraft fleets.”
Abu Dhabi Airports Company has already invested US $50 million in the airport and future plans include new hangars, improvements to aprons and runways, retail facilities, commercial space for leasing and a hotel.
ADAC is forecasting commercial movements of 8000 for the full 12 months to December 2010, an increase of more than 30% over 2009. ADAC is projecting almost 12,000 commercial movements at the airport by 2014.
