Eurojet announces major expansion at Birmingham Airport

Eurojet Aviation, one of the UK's leading aircraft management, charter, and maintenance companies, has announced a major £5 million (US$8 million) expansion plan at Birmingham Airport.

Eurojet's plans involve construction of a new 3,809m² complex which is set to include
a state-of-the-art maintenance facility,
a full service FBO,
a commercial operations centre, and an aircraft sales suite.

The maintenance facility is set for completion by the end of 2011 when it will become an official manufacturer-authorized service centre. Eurojet will also base two of its managed Cessna Citation aircraft at the new FBO.

Speaking about the development, Eurojet's managing director, Graeme Campbell, said: "Eurojet has operated from Birmingham for over 20 years and we are absolutely delighted to be locating this world-class development at such a high-profile airport in the heart of the country.

“The complete operational flexibility offered by Birmingham Airport – together with the tremendous support from the airport for the project – were decisive factors in selecting Birmingham, which is also the perfect location for the expansion of our FBO activities. Our enhanced Aircraft Sales Division will also have a dedicated sales suite at the new facility." 

When completed the scheme will create up to 50 new jobs. Welcoming the move, Birmingham Airport's chief executive Paul Kehoe said: "Birmingham Airport is delighted that Eurojet Aviation has decided to open an aircraft maintenance centre at the airport on the Elmdon site. This represents an important development in the establishment of an aircraft
maintenance cluster in the West Midlands."
