ExecuJet has expanded its footprint in the Middle East with the establishment of an FBO in Israel. The newest location is based at the Fattal Terminal at Tel Aviv Ben Gurion Airport, marking the country’s first private luxury passenger facility. A Luxaviation Group subsidiary, ExecuJet, in partnership with Israel-based aviation company Flyeast, will provide passenger processing, supervisory aircraft handling, concierge services, flight arrangements, and aircraft charter.

The terminal, which is under the same ownership as the Fattal Hotel chain, serves business aviation clients as well as diplomats, heads of state, and high-end commercial passengers. It provides security checks, hand luggage screening, and CIQ services, and offers private waiting rooms with beds and ensuite showers, as well as a main lounge with refreshments. The facility also includes a catering kitchen, 20- and 40-seat conference rooms, two duty-free shops, and chauffeur service.

An ExecuJet representative will meet guests at the entrance to the private terminal and be on hand to assist inside the facility. “We’re now finalizing key project elements, such as passenger flow within the VIP passenger lounge within the Fattal Terminal,” said Mike Berry, the company’s president of aviation services and v-p for the Middle East.

Over the coming months, ExecuJet will train new staff and develop its services to further enhance guest experience, it said.
