Jet Aviation has extended its facilities at Berlin Tegel International Airport to include a new customer lounge and crew briefing offices at Tegel’s general aviation center. The expansion is in response to customer demand for full ground-handling services at Tegel, it said. The company opened its Berlin FBO in February to provide FBO services at Schönefeld and Tegel International Airports. The new customer lounge and crew briefing offices at Tegel are in addition to Jet Aviation’s existing crew and passenger lounge and operations office at Schönefeld.
Signature Flight Support (Stand 827) announced at EBACE yesterday that it has signed an agreement with Berlin Schönefeld Airport to provide supervisory handling at the airport’s general aviation terminal, beginning in June. The FBO facility will offer private crew and passenger lounge areas, as well as on-site customs and immigration. The airport is due to be renamed Berlin Brandenburg International in a few weeks.
Fred Furth (the jet-piloting, law-litigating, wine-growing vintner) and his trusty sidekick Brandenburg (a six-year-old Great Dane) planned to blast off at precisely eight this morning for the next leg of their round-the-world odyssey in a Citation Mustang very light jet.
