European business aviation services company ABS Jets has received approval from the Bratislava Airport Authority to provide full-scale FBO services at Bratislava Airport in Slovakia. ABS Jets has overseen business aviation ground-handling services at the airport since 2009.
“We have worked very closely with the Bratislava Airport Authority to bring our existing ground-handling services and long-term expertise to commercial operations,” said Michal Pazourek, director of ground operations for ABS Jets. “Our goal now is to obtain the highest level of internationally recognized IS-BAH certification, which we achieved at our Prague base.”
ABS Jets established its presence in Bratislava in 2009 to support its own fleet, as well as oversee VIP handling services for private jet operations. It offers a 2,300-sq-m hangar at the airport, along with a crew lounge area, and luxury vehicles for transport. In addition, it provides line maintenance support for the Embraer Legacy 600/650 and Phenom 100/300, as well as the Gulfstream G550 and G650.
Headquartered in Prague, ABS Jets also arranges ground-handling services at other Czech and Slovak airports, including Brno, Karlovy Vary, Ostrava, Vodochody, Kunovice, Košice, Sliač, Žilina, and Piešťany.
