The Mohammed bin Rashid Aerospace Hub (MBRAH), a free-zone destination for airlines, private jet companies, and associated industries, at Dubai South registered 16,657 private aviation movements, the highest seen so far.
Last year’s movements reflect a growth of 8 per cent over 2022.
The growth is credited to several factors, including the Dubai Airshow, COP28 and the soft opening of the new ExecuJet FBO and hangar.
The hub is also home to maintenance centres and training and education campuses.
In 2023, MBRAH welcomed new partners seeking to set up their facilities across different zones to provide different MRO services, including manufacturing aircraft parts and structures, sealing and painting, AOG and aircraft parts supply, sourcing engine assets, and refurbishing private jet interiors.

Additionally, the MRO trade from MBRAH’s Aerospace Supply Chain, which includes import, export and re-export, has increased and is expected to reach over Dhs8bn over the next few years.
Tahnoon Saif, CEO of MBRAH, said: “Last year marked an extraordinary milestone for us; not only did we record the highest-ever business aviation movements, but we also enriched our portfolio with new companies and announced the expansion of facilities.
“These achievements underscore the trust and immense value we offer through our cutting-edge infrastructure and world-class facilities, all within Dubai’s strategic embrace of the sector’s global growth.”
