Award-winning air transport consultancy Helios has opened a new office in Dubai, establishing a formal presence in the Middle East for the first time. The office is located in Silicon Oasis and is part of Egis Group facilities. Located 15 minutes from Dubai International Airport and the Business District, the office is ideally located for servicing Helios’ growing business in the Middle East and India.
Heading the Dubai office is Alan Corner, Director Middle East and Asia. Alan has been a regular visitor to the region as part of Helios work for governments, aviation regulators and air transport service providers there.
“The Middle East is, and will continue to be of strategic importance to the global economy,” says Helios Executive Chairman, Dr Mike Shorthose. “We are delighted to launch our presence in the region to serve our distinguished clients there. This provides us with an opportunity to deepen our understanding of this complex market and its needs. By having a permanent presence we hope to serve existing clients better, and develop new customer relationships.”
Commenting on his move from the UK to Dubai, Alan Corner adds: “This is the logical step for us. Dubai is perfectly situated to support our growing number of Middle East contracts and, of course, will provide much easier access to our Indian customers. We are most grateful to our colleagues in Egis Group for their help in facilitating this move and we shall enjoy being co-located with them.”
