France’s Biarritz Airport last month concluded a more than $1.4 million upgrade including total refurbishments to its FBO and business aviation terminal. The beach resort is a noted fuel stop for Fortune 500 corporate aircraft transiting between North America and the Middle East, and its airport has a nearly 7,400-foot-long main runway and features customs and immigration support, lounges, on-site car rental and other amenities. Last year, the airport reported 2,000 corporate-jet movements, ranging from ACJs to Citation CJ1s. Future plans call for the development of hangars for private aircraft storage.
