    Posted by Benet Wilson 12:14 PM on Oct 04, 2011

    I reside in Baltimore, and this Labor Day weekend, the Charm City rolled out all the stops to host its first-ever Formula 1 Grand Prix race, executed in the downtown area.

    On the other side of the world, Abu Dhabi's Al Bateen Executive Airport is preparing for the Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, scheduled for Nov. 11-13. The airport, owned by Abu Dhabi Airports Co., is expecting to see an uptick in track during the week as race fans arrive and depart.

    To handle the traffic, boost business aviation in the region and help promote the race, Al Bateen Executive Airport will waive all landing and parking fees during the week of the F1 race.  Customers will have access to the new DhabiJet FBO, which will offer free food and drinks in the facility, along with live coverage of the race in the facility's crew lounge.

    “The addition of our impressive DhabiJet FBO and the new crew lounge demonstrates our proactive stance on leading business aviation in the Middle Eastern region." says airport GM Steve Jones. "The F1 event represents an excellent platform from which to demonstrate our service provision.”
