  • 3. Middle East Corporate Aviation Summit (MECAS 2012) – GCAS / Al Bateen Executive Airport Abu Dhabi, UAE 2© 2012 1BlueHorizon Group - www.1bluehorizon.com All rights reserved1BHG | Aeropodium Conference MECAS 07.06.12 O Originally Business jet, Private jet or, colloquially, bizjet is a term describing a jet aircraft, usually of smaller size, designed for transporting groups of up to 19 individuals. O The more formal terms of Corporate jet, executive jet, VIP transport or Business jet tend to be used by the firms that build, sell, buy and charter these aircraft. O The business jet industry groups the jets into five loosely-defined classes: 1.The most expensive type of private jet is the Heavy jet type, which is designed for the ultimate in large capacity luxury air travel (aircraft of this class include BBJ, ACJ, Lineage 1000); 2. The elite class of the business jet aircraft are the Super mid-size jets that feature wide body cabin space, high altitude, speed, and ultra long range capabilities (G650, Bombardier Global Express,…); 3. The Mid-size jets are suitable for longer range travel such as transcontinental flights and for travel with larger passenger capacity requirements. (Learjet 60 XR, Gulfstream 250 or Embraer Legacy 450 & 500); 4. The Light jets have been a staple of the business jet industry since the advent of the Learjet 23 in the early 1960s. The light jets provide access to small airports and the speed to be an effective air travel tool (Learjet 70/75, Citation Bravo & Encore, coming Pilatus PC24 (ex Grob SPn) ); 5. Finally the Very light jets, also known as Microjets or VLJs, are designed to provide air travel, for example, to the more than 5,000 small community airports in the U.S.A. . VLJs have a maximum take off weight of not more than 10,000 lb (Citation Mustang, Eclipse 500, Diamond D-Jet, …).

Commercial on‐demand charter 2. Corporate 3. Owner Operated 4. Fractional Ownership  Point‐to‐point, specific purpose routes (without inefficient hub‐and‐spoke)  Departure times based on specific requirement  Short takeoff distance, short time to altitude, high cruise altitude, fast descent/landing  Use of large number of airports (local & regional airports relieving traffic impact on high density areas)  Priority is on time management, efficiency and flexibility  79% of operators have only one aircraft  Executives and high worth passengers, but 78% of passengers middle management and lower (e.g. engineering & audit teams etc)

The service excellence in the Middle East's Corporate aviation sector strengthen the importance of hiring highly-trained professionals who consistently put the customer at the core in the delivery of its products and services in order to make business aviation safe, efficient and reliable.

Almost half (45%) of operators who responded agreed that the global recession has been their single biggest challenge to date. O But ironically, for an industry that delivers business efficiency for its customers, the Corporate Jet charter market as a whole is remarkably inefficient: FLYING EMPTY Three quarters (75%) of operators say that over a third (30-40%) of their flights are empty as they reposition for the next flight. COST CONSCIOUSNESS Three quarters (75%) of operators believe price competitiveness is the single biggest factor in winning charter business - above speed of returning a quote (15%) and their safety record (10%). SALES CONVERSION Nearly two-thirds of operators (60%) prepare 20 or more quotes for every charter sale with almost a quarter, (20%) saying that they prepare 40+ quotes per booking. MARKETING MIX Recommendation is unsurprisingly top of the list, with 85% relying on word of mouth. But 50% of operators now use search engine optimization as part of their marketing efforts, while social media sites are used by 25%. Over half of operators (60%) agreed that showing 360 degree imagery of aircraft on their websites would improve sales. MALE DOMINATION On average, operators said that 70% of corporate jet passengers were male, with a slightly lower male majority making the bookings (60%).

The Corporate aviation industry targets are the following:  Carbon neutral growth by 2020  An improvement in fuel efficiency averaging 2% per year from today until 2020  A reduction in total CO2 emissions of 50% by 2050 relative to 2005 The challenges (improvement areas) are on improving education related to the low impact of business aircraft on the environment, enhancing best practices for operators (including fuel efficiency) and accelerating research and development …

Middle East Corporate Aviation Summit (MECAS 2012) – GCAS / Al Bateen Executive Airport Abu Dhabi, UAE 10© 2012 1BlueHorizon Group - www.1bluehorizon.com All rights reserved1BHG | Aeropodium Conference MECAS 07.06.12 The New Taxes (1) (EU-ETS) Slot Reallocation The European Union now taxes carbon emissions by aviation operators, both general aviation and commercial. The EU offers tax credits on emissions, which are bought and sold on the open market and presents several problems for European business aircraft operators. While airlines are given generous credits, paying only approximately 15 percent of their emission fees, business operators must pay up to 96 percent of the tax on their emissions. As per the European Commission’s decision, the future allocation of slots will be based solely on the number of passengers carried. Operators that use their slot less than 85 percent of the time will be in danger of losing their slot altogether. This use-it-or- lose-it slot allocation plan will favor scheduled carriers and costing jobs and isolating remote regions of Europe. Note: (1) EU-ETS stands for European Union Emissions Trading Scheme In Europe especially, the addition of operating costs to the Corporate aviation industry is very challenging…

There are about 85 UAE registered Corporate jets and many high demanding visitors and the main very crowded International airports are most probably not the best place to arrive. In that perspective Al Bateen Executive Airport is for sure the way to follow. One of the main problems facing Corporate jet passengers is really access… As illustrative example, Dubai remains the most active hub for business travel in the UAE, with its Executive Flight Centre handling 6,060 arrivals and departures and 19,797 customers in 2011. Dubai airport's overall success with business jets, commercial aircraft and air cargo has come at a cost as its airspace becomes congested in peak periods, causing some delays for Corporate jet passengers… … whereas in the Middle East the corporate aviation infrastructure is very challenging - Al Bateen Executive as the way to follow

Middle East Corporate Aviation Summit (MECAS 2012) – GCAS / Al Bateen Executive Airport Abu Dhabi, UAE 12© 2012 1BlueHorizon Group - www.1bluehorizon.com All rights reserved1BHG | Aeropodium Conference MECAS 07.06.12 The ongoing sibling rivalry between airliners and Corporate aviation is not to underestimate and for sure one of the challenge O Every passenger in a Corporate jet has to be viewed by the airlines as one more unsold business-class ticket or even one more unsold First-class ticket –and that high-margin ‘fare- market value’ represents the butter and jam on the bread of the airlines… O So the airline trade groups lobby to promote the logic that anyone not subject to the ticket tax is not only clogging up the airways but also not paying a fair share. They maintain that each airplane exacts the same "cost" in air-traffic services and that Corporate aviation gets off easy with the fuel tax as opposed to the airlines' per-passenger ticket tax. O But practical – and affordable – navigation technology now exists for small aircraft to be able to use small airports in what used to be impossible weather, increasing their utility. Maybe we are a few steps closer to the day when ‘airliners’ will be like ocean liners or wagon trains…

Note: Elbert Leander "Burt" Rutan (born June 17, 1943) is an American aerospace engineer noted for his originality in designing light, strong, unusual-looking, energy-efficient aircraft. He is famous for his design of the record-breaking Voyager, which was the first plane to fly around the world without stopping or refueling, and the sub-orbital spaceplane SpaceShipOne. Burt Rutan once speculated that, someday, people might look back and say: "For a short period in history, people traveled en masse in giant airplanes called 'airliners.' They only used a very few crowded runways, and traveling to and from the airports often took longer than the flight itself." In Rutan's version of the future, we would further develop the general aviation infrastructure such that people could fly on light airplanes to and from the thousands of small airports near their homes and destinations. So what would an air-transportation system look like without big airliners? And could it be more cost effective? How different would our airport and air-traffic infrastructure be if airliners disappeared? Would it really cost less? And if so, how much less? Less ambitious, ‘What if there were no airliners with First-class‘?

O Some airliners already focus on 2 class aircraft, for the entire fleet or for some destination only. Following recent impressive offering improvement for the high-margin Business-class, some airliners are considering to move toward this 2 class offering using the usual First-class space to offer more Business-class seats. O Some other airliners are continuously improving their 3 class offering to attract more passengers in a very challenging market and in parallel launched premium travel service portfolio with a Corporate jet provider to further enhance the airline’s premium services offering to its guests (as example Etihad Airways ‘Premium Connect` with Royal Jet). Purely marketing or testing the First-class market? That’s the question…

They operate to the closest airport, where no scheduled service exists, usually a local or dedicated business aviation airport.  New business means jobs and economic stimulus.

Note: (1)A supersonic business jet (SSBJ) would be a small business jet, intended to travel at speeds above Mach 1.0. Source: 1BlueHorizon Group Research & Analysis  Several manufacturers believe that many of the old concerns like relatively high costs, high noise, low range and some environmental concerns can be dealt with at a smaller scale.  In addition, it is believed that small groups of high-value passengers (such as executives or heads of state) will find value in higher speed transport.
