Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 15 November 2023: Al-Futtaim Logistics, the leading regional provider of world-class supply chain solutions and logistics services, has today announced the official launch of its Aerospace Logistics division in the UAE. The inauguration, coinciding with the Dubai Airshow 2023, follows a soft launch at the MRO-AIME Middle East 2023.
Al-Futtaim’s Aerospace Logistics services caters to a diverse clientele including Airlines, Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO) operators, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Parts Suppliers, and Asset Leasing Companies. It offers a comprehensive suite of solutions that includes airside deliveries at major UAE airports, multiple carrier options, Technician Onboard Charters (TOC), and 24/7 centralised aerospace operations with global coverage.
