Ocean Sky Expands on Menorca

 - May 14, 2012, 9:10 PM

UK-based business aviation services group Ocean Sky Jet Centre (Stand 1669) has announced the purchase of Menorca’s Mahon FBO, becoming the sole private jet handling provider on the island. The purchase will enhance Ocean Sky’s ability to provide aircraft supervision in Menorca and increase its movement on the island to some 1,000 per year, according to the company.

Previous owner Karen Green will remain at the facility as manager of Ocean Sky Jet Centre FBOs in Spain at Menorca and Ibiza. Ocean Sky also operates FBOs at London Luton, Manchester, and Scotland Prestwick.

“Becoming the single FBO at Menorca enables Ocean Sky to consolidate its position on the island and send the clear message that the Balearics are an important location for the Ocean Sky brand,” said Ocean Sky CEO Steve Grimes. “Together with our thriving Ibiza FBO, Spain remains a key growth target for the expansion of the Jet Centre network.”
