Germany’s new Berlin Brandenburg International Airport (formerly Schoenefeld) has emerged as one of ExecuJet’s most significant handling centers in Europe. The company is responsible for operating the whole general aviation terminal, including its own FBO. ExecuJet has also established a base at Frankfurt International Airport, as well as a satellite operation at the nearby Egelsbach Airport.

Zurich in remains ExecuJet’s largest FBO. Since the last EBACE show, it has expanded its footprint in Switzerland through a joint venture with the Ruag FBO at Geneva, for which it is providing marketing and IT support.

Cambridge Airport in the UK also has become a very significant hub for ExecuJet. It is more than a year since it started operating the FBO there under a joint venture with the Marshall group, which owns the airport. Since then, the company has made Cambridge the hub for its operations, with 50 staff based there to support flights across Europe, the Middle East and as far away as Australia. It also has a charter booking team in the UK, and intends to move its finance and back office staff there, while retaining its Swiss aircraft operator’s certificate.
