ExecuJet Expands Globally

International aviation services provider ExecuJet Aviation Group is adding another two FBOs to its global network.

Last month the company partnered with Shell Aviation for the opening of a new FBO at Frankfurt Main International Airport. The location marks ExecuJet’s 10th location in Europe and Shell’s entrance onto the GA ramp at Frankfurt.

The Frankfurt FBO features a passenger lounge adjacent to the entrance of the airport’s general aviation terminal, and a separate crew area with computer and free internet access. The two companies previously partnered on an FBO at Berlin’s Schönefeld Airport.

ExecuJet also unveiled plans for a partnership with NasJet, the private aviation division of Saudi Arabia’s National Air Service, to operate a new FBO at King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh.

“By forming a joint venture with NAS Holding we have won a partner with a deep understanding of the Middle East private aviation landscape,” said Mike Berry, managing director of ExecuJet Middle East.

The new facility will occupy more than 16,000 sq ft in the airport’s new private aviation terminal. In addition to the FBO airside services, customers will benefit from landside offerings, such as regulatory filing and concierge services, said the company. Through its agreement between NASTECH and Lufthansa Technik, the new FBO will be able to provide line MRO services on most private aviation aircraft models. The new FBOs bring the ExecuJet’s worldwide total to 15 locations.

In November, the company formally opened two previously announced Australasian FBOs at Essendon Airport near Melbourne in Australia, a more than 10,000-sq-ft addition to its existing Part 145 maintenance facility, as well as its new location at Wellington International Airport in New Zealand, which it is operating with Capital Jet Services.
