“Over the years FBO Riga has proved itself as a reliable partner with a flexible customer-centric approach. We pay highest attention to the needs of every customer and partner – and the launch of the line station at FBO Riga was motivated by the growing demand for technical support and maintenance services in our business aviation center. We are grateful to our partners – Lufthansa Bombardier Aviation Services and SOLINAIR – for their great support in this project and are glad to provide our customers with first-class MRO services for the most popular types of business aircraft operated in our region,” said Roman Starkov, co-owner of FBO Riga.
“FBO Riga has the entire infrastructure for aircraft technical maintenance works including the most modern and fully equipped hangar and the adjoining parking areas. Moreover, Riga is well located for the CIS countries, Russia and Europe. We are confident that the launch of the line station at FBO Riga will help our customers reduce MRO costs while getting the highest quality services from a reliable partner,” added Leonid Gorodnitski, co-owner of FBO Riga.
