The Jet Assist-Business Jet Centre made its debut last month as a new service provider at Belfast International Airport. The spacious facility, located next to the GA ramp, has its own security screening, lounge seating for up to 25 passengers and a crew lounge, among other amenities. The Ascent-branded FBO is a member of the World Fuel Services network.
