DC Aviation Al-Futtaim sees surge for private jets to Doha ahead of FIFA

DC Aviation Al-Futtaim (DCAF) has seen an increase in enquiries for private jets to Doha as football fever kicks in ahead of this year’s FIFA World Cup in Qatar.


To accommodate the huge volume of requests and to make travel more convenient, DCAF will make available aircraft ranging from the very light and affordable 4-seater Cessna Citation Mustang to the light jet 8-seater Pilatus PC-12, the midsize jet 9-seater Bombardier Challenger 604. In addition, DCAF will also be able to offer a 10-seater Falcon 2000 as well as large-size cabin aircraft.

“We have seen a sharp increase in enquiries for the later stages of the tournament from the first week of December until the finals which take place on December 18 at the 80,000-capacity Lusail Stadium. We are closely monitoring the level of enquiries and are well prepared with our offering,” said Holger Ostheimer, managing director of DC Aviation Al-Futtaim.
