Charter and management operator Hangar8 expects to open a new FBO on the island of Jersey in early 2015. The UK-based group’s CEO, Dustin Dryden, told AIN that the year-long construction project is slated to begin in the offshore tax shelter by the start of next year. Dryden indicated that Hangar8 is exploring plans to expand into the FBO sector. “We see this as a way to improve the facilities and the service we receive ourselves [as an aircraft operator] and we may buy our way into existing [ground handling] markets where established skills and facilities are available,” he explained.

Hangar8 now operates more than 50 aircraft. In addition to its headquarters in the UK, it has operating bases in Nigeria, South Africa, Kazakhstan, Malta, Congo, France, Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia, Austria, Poland and the Netherlands.
