ExecuJet Expands Handling Chain With Cambridge FBO

 - October 10, 2011, 7:25 PM

ExecuJet Europe is further expanding its growing network of FBOs with its appointment by the UK’s Cambridge Airport to run its FBO. The Switzerland-based group has won a competitive tender to operate a branded FBO in its own name at the airport, which is located 70 miles northeast of London.

Under the terms of a five-year, risk-sharing contract with Cambridge Airport (Booth No. N1622), ExecuJet will directly employ the existing FBO staff. It expects to appoint a new manager for the facility, but to launch the new operation in January the company will temporarily redeploy one its own FBO managers from another location.

Like its other handling operations, the Cambridge facility will be integrated with the network via the FBO One software that is used to coordinate customer service. Cambridge staff will travel to ExecuJet’s Zurich headquarters for training.

Cambridge Airport is to free up hangar space immediately adjacent to its recently renovated and expanded FBO building. It operates a long-established Cessna Citation service center next the facility.
