MEBAA Attends NBAA Ahead Of MEBA... Got That?
A not-for-profit group
founded in July to further business aviation interests in the
Middle East will make its first official appearance at the National
Business Aviation Association conference kicking off Tuesday in
Orlando, FL... where the group may pick up some pointers, as
Representatives with the newly-formed Middle East Business
Aviation Association (MEBAA) tell ANN this will be the first
official appearance by the group. The association's goals include
enhancing safety, security, efficiency and acceptance of business
aviation in the mideast.
A not-for-profit organization, MEEBA is incorporated in Dubai --
a locale where both commercial and business aviation are, well,
Ali Ahmed Al Naqbi, vice president of finance and administration
for Abu Dhabi-based Amiri Flight, is the group's first chairman. He
will be in attendance at the NBAA conference.
MEEBA recently announced it, too, will be holding an annual
gathering... with similar intent to the NBAA's annual conference.
Called the Middle East Business Aviation conference, or MEBA, the
inaugural two-day event will kick off at the Airport Expo Dubai, in
the United Arab Emirates from January 31 through February 1 next
"This is a growing sector and we need significant discussions
about the regional market to open up," said Jordan's Prince Feisal
Ibn Al-Hussein on the importance of business aviation to the
region. "The market needs more professionalism and transparency and
this is what both the Association and MEBA will help kick-start. I
hope the conference realistically addresses concerns, of which open
skies is one, which are seriously holding back the growth of this
high potential segment."
