Steve Jones, managing director of London Oxford Airport, is to take up a new aviation challenge in the Middle East as general manager of Al Bateen Executive Airport in Abu Dhabi, effective 17 November.
“Taking over the day-to-day management and development of Al Bateen Airport is one of the most exciting and attractive projects in the industry," says Jones. "There are some interesting parallels and synergies with the work I do at Oxford and this is a golden opportunity to contribute to the creation of a world-class dedicated business and VIP aviation centre."
Mohammed Al Bulooki, vice president of Al Bateen Executive Airport, comments: “The addition of Steve Jones to the management structure, brings a wealth of knowledge that will support Abu Dhabi Airport Company's aim to operate to the highest service standards and so become one of the worlds most prestigious executive airports. His experience at London Oxford Airport and his wide experience in the field of private/executive aviation will be invaluable for the growth and development of Al Bateen.”
