Empire Aviation Group, the Dubai-based private aviation specialist, was a double winner at the Middle East Aviation Achievement Awards 2021, where the company picked up the ‘Business Aviation Operator of the Year’ and ‘Aircraft Management Service Provider’ awards. The event was held virtually on March 2nd and organized by MEA Business Magazine and the Aviation Annual Gala Evening 2021. Since launching in Dubai in 2007, Empire Aviation has extended operations around the world and today operates one of the largest managed fleets of private jets in the region. 

Through the pandemic, Empire Aviation Group has continued to fly private jet missions including emergency medical or repatriation flights to various destinations from different countries. Empire Aviation also arranged charters for 150+ passengers on larger aircraft sub-chartered through airline partners. In 2020, the team flew several charter flights operating from Dubai to different cities in India, and from India back to Dubai, after the easing of some restrictions.

Most recently, the company has been innovating luxury travel with the launch of a new ‘Luxury Partner’ programme designed to combine the unique benefits of private jet travel with award-winning luxury travel partners, in response to the growing demand from affluent leisure travelers for highly personalized private travel services and associated luxury leisure experiences. The first Luxury Partners include companies with a particular focus on the luxury resorts of the Indian Ocean and Thailand – favorites among private jet charter clients. 

Paras P. Dhamecha, Founder and Managing Director of Empire Aviation Group, comments: “The Empire Aviation team is thrilled with the double award at the Aviation Achievement Awards 2021 and to be recognized for our commitment to aircraft owners and customers through a very challenging year for aviation. Thanks to the very positive response by the UAE authorities and the commitment of our team, we have managed to continue providing our services wherever possible, and to ensure the safety of crew while helping the community. We believe private aviation continues to prove its unique value and high levels of privacy, comfort, convenience, and safety. Even through the pandemic we have been able to innovate around our services with the introduction of the new Luxury Partner programme, and we look forward to expanding this programme as aviation recovers through the year.” 

The Empire Aviation team provides all the major services associated with private aviation – aircraft management, flight operations and charter, as well as aircraft sales and CAMO. The company integrates these comprehensive services and combines them with the aviation expertise and experience of the team to provide a high degree of personalized services. 

The company manages private jets on behalf of owners and Empire Aviation’s aircraft management approach means that each aircraft owner has a unique business model and services. Several of the managed private jets on the fleet are available to the charter market. Empire Aviation is also a charter broker and can arrange aircraft charter anywhere in the world for business or leisure.
