Jet Aviation and Germany’s Kurz Aviation Service, which operate a total of seven FBOs in Germany, have agreed to cooperate to offer their clients a seamless network within the European country. As part of the agreement, the companies will exchange nationwide operational and service relevant flight data. Jet Aviation operates at Berlin Teigel and Schönefeld, Dusseldorf and Munich, while Kurz has facilities at Cologne, Egelsbach, Frankfurt and Stuttgart, all of which will be available to customers through a single point of contact.

“Our decision to share resources will offer significant benefits,” said Frank Kusserow, Jet Aviation’s FBO managing director in Germany. “If, for example, available parking is limited at one airport, the customer can still be accommodated by diverting the aircraft to another airport. This cooperation offers a total network solution for our customers in Germany and we are very pleased to cooperate with Kurz Aviation Service.”

Kurz built the first privately owned and operated FBO in Germany in 1998.
