ExecuJet continues global FBO expansion

January 12, 2012:

ExecuJet Aviation Group concluded a successful 2011 having consolidated its position as one of the world's strongest and award-winning FBO brands. Throughout the year it concentrated on widening its global presence with the opening of ten new Fixed Based Operations (FBOs) throughout Europe, the Middle East and Australasia, closing the year with a presence at 16 bases worldwide.

ExecuJet began its FBO operations in 2001 with its first base at Zurich Airport and now has state of the art facilities in the Middle East, Australasia and Africa. Over the ensuing decade, the Swiss-headquartered company steadily developed its FBO activity as a core business focus. Over the last 12 months five FBOs were added in Spain (Barcelona, Gerona, Ibiza, Palma and Valencia) two in Australasia (Melbourne, Australia and Wellington, New Zealand) and one in the Middle East region (Istanbul, Turkey) plus a further German base in Frankfurt and its first full service base in the UK at Cambridge Airport. "We have seized the opportunity while business aviation is in recovery mode and consequently continue to evaluate all new and viable FBO opportunities," said Mark Abbott, Group FBO Director. "ExecuJet's development strategy is to identify airports that complement our network, have healthy catchments and are ripe for business aviation. We are currently evaluating further opportunities in Africa, Spain, China, South America and the Middle East.

"Our FBO business continues to grow and new customers and opportunities keep presenting themselves - a true testament to the increasing strength of our brand. This is exciting and rewarding and we are committed to maintaining the momentum we have built up in terms of providing the highest service levels and setting the benchmark for our competitors" said Abbott. "As ExecuJet continues to expand, being passionate about our business and investing in people remains one of the cornerstones of our success" he concludes.

ExecuJet's FBO at Cambridge, which saw the group take over the two year old Marshall Business Aviation facility from 1 January, comes at an opportune time as London hosts the Olympics this year. The tender for the FBO business was hotly contested and ExecuJet's experience in handling high volumes of traffic during the World Economic Forum in Davos and the World Cup in South Africa put it in good stead. The Cambridge facility mirrors the state-of-the-art consistency that ExecuJet prides itself on throughout its FBO network. "It doesn't matter whether a client is arriving or departing from Zurich, Melbourne, Cape Town or Dubai for example, the experience will be the same outstanding quality," said Mark Abbott.

ExecuJet will be showcasing its range of customised corporate aviation solutions at the NBAA 22nd Annual Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference [Booth #904] taking place at the San Diego Convention Center, CA, USA from January 15-17.
