FBO operator Global Trek Aviation is expanding its brand by opening a second executive jet center at Cardiff International Airport (EGFF) in the UK.
Global Trek Aviation’s first hub is at Belfast International Airport in Northern Ireland.
Gordon Bingham, chief operating officer of Global Trek Aviation, said, “We are delighted to be opening this all-new facility at Cardiff International Airport as it offers tremendous potential with its ideal strategic location.
“We are investing in building a bespoke, state-of-the-art facility on the south side of the airport with dedicated VIP lounge, private offices, crew briefing center, flight ops facilities and a fully integrated security screening suite.”
The provisional target date for opening the new full service FBO is April 2019, subject to completion. Global Trek Aviation will be offering clients a full range of ground support equipment, in addition to offering a dedicated aircraft refueling service.
Spencer Birns, commercial director at Cardiff Airport, said, “Global Trek’s announcement is really the first significant step taken in the development plans set out in our masterplan.
“Our vision for success includes a clear strategy to diversify our air service activities and encourage use of our facilities all year round. It’s fantastic to see that an established brand like Global Trek has recognized the great potential that exists at Cardiff Airport, and indeed in Wales.
“We very much look forward to the official opening of Global Trek’s brand-new facility at Cardiff Airport in a few short months.”
