Jet Access To Establish Miami Hub

Starting at the beginning of February, aircraft charter and management provider Jet Access will establish a secondary hub within the Fontainebleau Aviation FBO at Florida's Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport. The facility offers a 15,000 sq ft terminal with a 12,000 sq ft aircraft arrivals canopy, along with more than 220,000 sq ft of hangar space.

Private aircraft charter and management provider Jet Access Aviation is establishing a new hub at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport FBO Fontainebleau Aviation just ahead of Super Bowl LIV next month in Miami.

"We’re excited to have the opportunity to team with Jet Access," said Bobby Courtney, the FBO's vice president. "Being able to combine the aviation experience, with our portfolio of South Beach hotels, golf courses, and water parks will give the client full access to the lifestyle.”

Fontainebleau, one of three service providers on the airfield, has more than 220,000 sq ft of hangar space, along with business aircraft maintenance and detailing capabilities. It will provide Palm Beach-based Jet Access’s fleet of 40 jets and two turboprops, ranging from a Gulfstream IV to a Beechcraft King Air 90, with an operating base in the Miami-area, which has seen increasing demand for charter, according to the aircraft charter and management firm.

Jet Access, which noted the move will help mitigate repositioning legs and allow it to keep its charter rates competitive, will have an office in the 15,000-sq-ft terminal while its customers can access a private lounge.

“Fontainebleau properties are a proven brand in South Florida,” said Jet Access president and CEO Jack Lambert. “To be able to call their five-star location home is a game-changer for our operation and our clients.”
