World-Way Aviation will debut its new FBO at Brazil’s Sorocaba Airport in February, the company announced last week. The $15 million facility, one of six service providers at the airport, will offer a hangar with a clear span of 252 feet and nearly 100,000 sq ft of space—enough room for nine Embraer Lineage 1000s—and 1.5 acres of ramp area.

The FBO's 30,000-sq-ft terminal will have a dedicated VIP lounge, conference room, crew lounge, flight-planning room, crew rest suites, fitness center, observation balcony and concierge service. It will be the largest service provider facility in the country, as well as Brazil’s only member of the Air Elite network.

Located 60 miles from downtown São Paulo, the dedicated business aviation airport is open 24 hours with no slot restrictions, and is the world’s only airport to host service centers owned by Dassault, Embraer, Gulfstream and Pratt & Whitney Canada.
