Global trip support provider Jetex is partnering with Bombardier Aviation on a new FBO at Singapore Seletar Aerospace Park. Jetex is currently providing ground handling services through shared facilities at Bombardier’s service center, but as part of the OEM’s expansion of the facility—which will turn it into a “high-capacity, one-stop-shop super center”—Jetex will operate its own co-located facility there, details of which were unavailable at press time. This gives UAE-based Jetex its 33rd international location and its fourth in the Asia-Pacific region.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with a service provider of this caliber as part of the expansion of Bombardier’s Singapore Service Center, a key hub for business aviation in the Asia-Pacific region,” said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, the Canadian airframer’s v-p for service, support, and corporate strategy. “Jetex shares Bombardier’s commitment to delivering…exceptional service.”

The move will bring the Singapore facility into the Jetex network, with access to its international flight planning and trip support services, including its global trip manager platform that will provide seamless aircraft services, security, and baggage control, as well as offer real-time billing.

“We are optimistic about the possibilities for growth in the Asia-Pacific region and very excited to be adding Singapore to our network,” said Jetex founder and CEO Adel Mardini, adding the city-state saw an 18 percent increase in private jet demand last year compared to 2018.
