No sooner had Landmark Aviation celebrated its refurbished Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) FBO and maintenance facility last Thursday, than it turned its eyes toward nearby Van Nuys Airport, where Landmark is seeking suitable property. The FBO at Van Nuys is “going to be a full-service site,” said Landmark CEO Roger Wolfe, “and we’re going to spend whatever it takes to make it a flagship operation.” Meanwhile, the $2.6 million renovation at LAX expanded Landmark’s ramp space by 10 percent and upgraded the terminal. The new lobby eliminates the long walk from the entrance area to the fuel desk. Now the ramp-side entrance opens onto a clean, functional lobby space. A new VIP room offers privacy and visitors can take advantage of concierge services, a business center, wireless Internet and flat-screen satellite television. Landmark LAX, said spokesman Andrew Farrant, “is the new Landmark-standard lobby.”
