Euro Jet Expands To Western Europe

 - May 13, 2012, 12:30 PM

Czech ground handling support provider Euro Jet Intercontinental is expanding its operations into Western Europe as part of a new global expansion plan. The company recently appointed Gareth Danker as its new director of global sales and marketing; it also named Matej Gunda head of its Western European operations. Gunda will operate from a new office in Brussels.

Until recently Euro Jet operated ground-handling support stations mainly in East Europe and Central Asia. “We are excited to develop what we believe is an area of the world that can greatly benefit from a top-quality ground-support operation,” said Charlie Bodnar, Euro Jet CEO.

Danker, who is based in the U.S., said his presence would allow Euro Jet to reach out to its existing U.S. client base and also help to identify new clients.

With fast-growing airports, including Riga and Tallinn, used by militaries the world over for refueling and ground handling, Ulrika Raik, who took over as manager of the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, said Euro Jet is one of the few companies with extensive reach in the region.
