Seychelles International Airport on Mahé, the Indian Ocean country's largest island, will be home to an ExecuJet operated FBO starting August 1. It will offer a full slate of aircraft, passenger and crew support services.

Global aviation services provider ExecuJet will expand its FBO footprint next month with the opening of a new facility in the Seychelles. The location at Seychelles International Airport on the island of Mahé will be operated by the Luxaviation Group subsidiary in partnership with Euro Aviation Limited and will offer full FBO and ground-handling services, including aircraft parking and fuel coordination, passenger and crew support, flight planning and permit assistance. Airside transfers will be provided to and from the aircraft.

Upon its August 1 opening, the location will join the company’s network of facilities in the region, such as South Africa’s Lanseria and Cape Town International Airports and Murtala Muhammad International Airport in Lagos, Nigeria.

“We are delighted that ExecuJet will fully operate and manage this exciting FBO, and look forward to making the Seychelles a destination of choice for many dignitaries and VIP users of general aviation,” said Abdul Jalil, Euro Aviation’s CEO.

This new location brings the number of ExecuJet FBOs to 27 worldwide.

“It is a vital part of our growth plan for the Luxaviation Group to open facilities in new locations, and where better to welcome our VIP clients and crews than this wonderful group of islands in the Indian Ocean,” said Ettore Poggi, Luxaviation’s group FBO director. “We are excited to be welcoming another facility to our global network, and look forward to extending our service offering by opening more in the future.”
