Ammar Balkar, Vice President Sales and Marketing, Royal Jet, said: "As a prime mover in bringing about this initiative, and as one of the region’s leading operators of business jets, it is essential Royal Jet’s influential name and branding is highly visible at this important conference."

"We will be working closely with Fairs & Exhibitions, organiser of both MEBA and the Dubai air show, to deliver a world-class gathering and establish the groundwork for an event which can be further developed," added Balkar.

"This is a most timely initiative with the Middle East emerging as a key market for executive aviation. The growth in the market is being driven by a combination of factors, including the high price of oil, greater political stability and the general economic growth in the region. These factors are driving up business and competition across many sectors in the region, which is encouraging local operators and owners to invest in aircraft. Other factors, such as rising demand for greater security in aviation, frequent flyers looking to reduce travel time and rising demand for confidentiality and privacy.
