Arabasco Expands In Jeddah
Arabian Aircraft Service Co. (Arabasco) opened its new FBO in Jeddah last month. The new 37,675-sq-ft, two-floor FBO is part of the first phase of the redevelopment of Jeddah International Airport and consists of several separate lounges for passengers and a dedicated airside area for crew, allowing them close access both to their aircraft and to support services, including flight planning, crew snooze rooms and a crew lounge. Arabasco operates FBOs in the Saudi cities of Riyadh, Medina and Yanbu. The volume of business aircraft traffic has tripled at Riyadh over the past five years, prompting construction of the new FBO to begin next year.
