AVIAÂ, the international group purchasing organisation (GPO) for business aviation is expanding its presence in the Middle East with the signing of a new preferred supplier partnership with Jetex.

The partnership commences with exclusive savings on full business aircraft handling, through select FBOs in Jetex’s global network.  

AVIAÂ Business Development Director Matt Smith signed the partner agreement with Adel Mardini, CEO and President of Jetex flight support, at its flagship VIP Dubai South, Dubai World Central Airport FBO, on the eve of the biannual MEBAA 2018 Show.  

The agreement opens up a wealth of savings for AVIAÂ members, located primarily in the US and Europe, when using Jetex FBOs in the Middle East and selected European locations, including Paris, Barcelona, and Rome.

Jetex also opened its second exclusive FBO in Oman, which will complement its flagship FBO at the VIP Private Jet Terminal in Dubai South.  

AVIAÂ uses aggregation, transparency, industry expertise, and proprietary algorithms to streamline the procurement process for both operators and vendors. Through membership, operators of all sizes achieve improved business intelligence and economies of scale, allowing them to get the best value for key operational items; suppliers receive committed volume without the overhead, reduced friction costs around transactions, and deep insights into customer behaviour and purchasing patterns.
