Jet Aviation (Booth No. 3797) has added 20 aircraft to its management fleet and expanded capabilities and ramp space at its Houston and Dallas FBO facilities.

Eleven of the aircraft added to the Jet Aviation fleet since May are U.S.-based and the remainder in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Two of the aircraft, a Gulfstream G550 in West Palm Beach, Fla. and a Bombardier Global 5000 in Moscow, are available for charter. “Expanding the fleet helps ensure that our range of aircraft will meet the varying jet transportation needs of our customers,” said Claudio Peer, Jet Aviatino’s vice president of sales for aircraft management and charter in EMEA & Asia.

Jet Aviation also recently expanded its maintenance capabilities at its newly acquired FBO at Houston’s Hobby Airport and expanded its ramp space at Dallas Love Field by 48,000 sq ft, bringing the total Dallas facility size to more than 250,000 sq ft. “With the acquisition of our newest FBO/MRO in Houston and the expansion of our Dallas operation to handle aircraft up to narrowbody jets, we are well-positioned in Texas to continue providing premier quality and service to our customers,” said John Langevin, Jet Aviation’s vice president of FBO operations, North America.
