Embassair, a brand new FBO at Miami Opa-locka Executive Airport (KOPF), will open on February 1 after two years of construction. The $50 million complex was designed by world-class architect Jacques Rougerie and, according to the company, its 25,000-sq-ft terminal offers the highest levels of security and discretion.

It also features four private boarding lounges with direct access to the ramp; a covered garage with access to the lounges and ramp; an atrium lobby with a 28-foot-high ceiling; dining lounge; a trio of snooze rooms with individual bathrooms, full beds, and television; crew gym; two flight-planning areas; and a pair of conference rooms seating four and eight, respectively. The AEG Connect-branded facility has 60,000 sq ft of adjoining hangar space capable of accommodating the latest ultra-long-range business jets and nearly three acres of ramp space.

“Our team is ready to showcase our innovative facility to the private aviation customers traveling to the Miami area,” said José Cabrera, the FBO’s director. “We have a highly trained team who uphold the highest standards in safety and customer experience in the industry.” He told AIN the FBO will soon begin accepting tenant contracts.

The company also announced this week at NBAA’s Schedulers and Dispatchers Conference that it will be one of the first participants in Argus International’s Base Operations Audit Program.
