Brazilian service provider Colt Aviation has begun construction of a new $12 million FBO at Rio de Janeiro’s Galeão-Antonio Carlos Jobim International Airport. The 215,000-sq-ft facility will include a 5,300-sq-ft VIP lounge with a private entrance, meeting rooms, a 200-space car park and two hangars, one of them earmarked for maintenance. According to the company, construction is set to begin next month, and the new FBO will be ready by mid-year. Galeão is the second busiest airport in Brazil and has the South American nation’s longest runway, at more than 13,000 feet.
