Fargo Jet Center attending aviation event in Middle East

FARGO – The Fargo Jet Center wants to expand its worldwide customer base by attending the Middle East Business Aviation event in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, today through Thursday.

Darren Hall, vice president of marketing for the jet center, said in a news release that the Fargo Jet Center hopes to widen its reputation as a gateway to the southwestern United States.

The Fargo location makes it an ideal tech stop for planes coming from Europe. A U.S. Customs Service 24-hour port of entry in Fargo is also attractive to many travelers, the release said.

“There is a tremendous amount of opportunity for business aviation in the Middle East,” Hall said in the news release. “Exhibiting at MEBA provides us a connection to that opportunity.”

He said the Fargo Jet Center has been successful in establishing and building relationships with domestic and international operators throughout North America and Europe.

Hall hopes the Dubai event will open doors to new opportunities.

The Fargo Jet Center has a 9,000-foot runway, a 24-hour air traffic control tower and many commercial airline connections for crew stops, the release stated.

The center also offers aircraft maintenance, an avionics repair station, aircraft charter, management services, aircraft sales and a flight school.

Fargo Jet Center will co-exhibit with Avfuel Corp. in the U.S. pavilion in Dubai.
