JetEquity, a charter/management company based at Westchester County Airport (HPN) in White Plains, N.Y., has launched into the line-service business with the acquisition last month of HPN’s first FBO–Skyport. “We plan to renovate the existing hangar and office complexes,” said JetEquity v-p Brian Ciambra. According to JetEquity v-p of sales and marketing Millie Becker, the company intends to acquire more FBOs. For the near future, Skyport will retain its name and be run independently of JetEquity’s charter/management operations and facilities at HPN.
