Growth Takes Off at Czech FBO ABS Jets

 - June 28, 2012, 2:10 PM

Czech FBO ABS Jets reported 28-percent year-over-year growth in executive aircraft handling operations at Prague Ruzyne Airport during the first quarter.

According to ground operations director Jan Kralik, the marked increase in business is vindication of the private company’s substantial investment in a new hangar and handling equipment last year.

The growth bucks the prevailing general trend for European FBOs. ABS, which is active in aircraft maintenance, management and charter, also has a base at Bratislava Airport in the neighboring Slovak Republic.
