Abu Dhabi, Al Bateen Executive Airport, the dedicated business aviation airport of Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC), today released its traffic performance results for the first half of 2012. 

The traffic report revealed a 30% increase in visiting aircraft movements to the executive airport over the period between January and June 2012 compared with the same period in 2011, marking a total of 1,100 visiting flights during those six months.

Al Bateen Executive Airport continues to mark an increase in traffic as the airport witnessed a 10% increase in overall commercial traffic in the first half of 2012, handling over 5,000 based operators and visiting aircraft movements.

Yousif Al Hammadi, Al Bateen Executive Airport's deputy general manager said, “Al Bateen is again seeing double digit growth of business jet movements, especially from visiting international aircraft that have not used the airport before.  And, with the Formula One season nearing, there is no doubt that Al Bateen is positioning itself, stronger than ever, as the perfect stop location due to ease of access, short turnarounds and top quality services.”

“In addition, traffic will continue to grow at Al Bateen as more business aircraft operators join the airport and base their aircraft at ADAC’s dedicated business aviation airport, and as Abu Dhabi continues to grow as a leading business, leisure and aviation hub in the region”, added Al Hammadi.
