This Saturday, 1st February 2020, Marrakech, Morocco, sees the opening of the popular destination’s first private jet terminal.
Already, Morocco sees over 11,000 private jet movements a year, of which about 50% go in or out of Marrakech.
The Jetex operation, opening in a few days, will show that aviation and luxury hospitality are natural partners. The specially-built 1,000 sq. m. terminal, designed to be the largest in North Africa and furnished with designer pieces by Zaha Hadid, seems like a luxury boutique, which is not surprising since Jetex partners with many of the world’s top brands.
Departing passengers relax in several private seating areas while Jetex concierges effect all departing emigration requirements. Duty-free can be ordered, there are drinks and Pierre Marcolini edibles, and games for kids. You are driven across the tarmac direct to the plane. (Arriving in Marrakech? The procedure is the same, in reverse).
Jetex is the world’s largest private jet terminal company. It has more than 30 locations, of which 17 are in France. Jetex was founded 2005 by its CEO, Adel Mardini, whose own luxury attributes range from Bernardaud for his office coffee to business cards that are works of art.
Luxury Travel Essential will be covering news of Jetex, and thoughts from Adel Mardini and why he sees private jet hospitality moving increasingly into the territories of cruise lines and hotels.
