Jet Aviation has opened an FBO in Berlin to provide handling at the city’s Schönefeld and Tegel International Airports. The new facility at Schönefeld includes an operations office, a crew lounge and a VIP passenger lounge. “As a major international hub and a common point of entry to central Europe, Berlin is a key location for our customers,” said Frank Kusserow, Jet Aviation’s director of FBO services in Germany. “Many of our customers regularly fly between Berlin, Dusseldorf and our other worldwide FBOs, and they can now benefit from having the same handling provider.”

In support of the new facility, the 18th in its network, the General Dynamics subsidiary signed an agreement with Acciona Airport Services to supply ground services and equipment at both airports. Philipp Walter has joined Jet Aviation from Acciona’s Berlin operations and will manage the new Berlin FBO operation. The company’s Berlin FBO is under the overall direction of Kusserow, who also oversees the company’s FBO in Dusseldorf.
