Luxaviation subsidiary ExecuJet has entered into a partnership with Kurz Aviation Service which will expand its ground service network in Germany. While ExecuJet currently operates FBOs in Berlin and Munich, the strategic relationship will see Kurz’ facilities in Stuttgart, Cologne, and Frankfurt carry dual branding.

“Clients and crews will benefit from the synergies of this partnership,” said Ronny Stechert, ExecuJet’s managing director for Europe. “We know our customers will appreciate the efficiency of having a single point of contact for the FBO services we’ll be offering together.”

He added the deal will enable the companies to leverage better pricing and supplier contracts. “We’ll also be rotating staff around locations so our teams can form strong bonds, understanding the specific requirements and strengths of each FBO and exchange best practices.”

ExecuJet which also provides aircraft charter, management, maintenance, and sales services currently operates 24 FBOs in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Austral-Asia, and the Caribbean.

“We bring 25 years of experience and local expertise to this partnership, which will combine perfectly with ExecuJet’s extensive industry knowledge and global FBO network,” said Hagen Kurz, managing director and shareholder. “We couldn’t ask for a better strategic partner in Germany."
