DUBAI, 5 Nov. 2015. The typical private jet owner in the Middle East is male, nearly five years younger than the global average and has planes that are worth three times more than his peers' jets, according to a white paper by Wealth-X and WINGX Advance.
The white paper, titled “Private Aviation in the Middle East: Owner Profile, Trends, and Business Opportunity” and released in advance of the Dubai Air Show, underscores opportunities in the region for the private aviation business, estimated to be worth about $10 billion over the next decade.
