ExecuJet, part of the Luxaviation Group, has gained its first FBO in the Caribbean region, at Princess Juliana International Airport on the island of St. Maarten. Acquired from TLC Aviation, this takes the ExecuJet FBO network to 24 locations globally as it works to rebrand the facility to fit with its own corporate identity.
The St. Maarten FBO offers ground handling, fuelling, air charter, flight plans, executive transport and accommodation services for both customers and crew. In 2015, the FBO handled 1,868 movements from small light aircraft to large wide-bodied aircraft such as the A340-500.
Mike Berry, president, Aviation Services, ExecuJet, said, “We’re delighted to begin offering our customers support in the Caribbean region. St. Maarten is the hub for the north-eastern Caribbean region, with access to mainland USA and Europe. Princess Juliana International Airport serves as a key location for the neighbouring islands and as such is ideally located to support the exclusive mega-yacht destinations of Anguilla, St. Barths and St. Kitts; the perfect complement to the private aviation market in the region.”
