Jet Aviation has acquired Arlin’s Aircraft Services, one of two FBOs at Montana’s Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport. Arlin’s, which will retain its aircraft maintenance operation, has provided aviation service at the airport since 1979. Its facility there includes a 5,000-sq-ft terminal with passenger lobby, two pilot lounges, shower facilities, conference room, flight-planning area, and crew cars, along with more than 60,000 sq ft of hangar space with 27-foot high hangar doors.

According to the General Dynamics subsidiary, plans call for a renovation of the terminal, the upgrading of ground service equipment, and the construction of a new hangar capable of sheltering the latest ultra-long-range business jets. The staff at the facility will be retained. For Basel, Switzerland-based Jet Aviation, this represents its ninth location in the U.S. and 33rd worldwide.

“Arlin’s FBO in Bozeman is a most welcome addition to our FBO network,” said David Best, Jet Aviation’s senior v-p and general manager for the Americas. “As the gateway to Yellowstone National Park and in close proximity to the Yellowstone Club and Big Sky Resort, Bozeman is Montana’s busiest airport and a key destination for our aircraft management and charter customers.”
