ExecuJet St Maarten returns to operations after Hurricane Irma


Luxaviation Group’s Execujet has resumed operations at its FBO in St Maarten following the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma.

Fuel is available without restriction at the FBO, and the current limitation to daylight-only flights is expected to be lifted following the restoration of navigation aids and runway lights, which is scheduled for completion by the end of October 2017.

Ettore Poggi, Group FBO director, Luxaviation Group, said, “We are immensely proud of our staff at the ExecuJet St Maarten facility. They have worked tirelessly to get our FBO fully operational as soon as possible while also attending to humanitarian and relief flights during the crisis.”

ExecuJet’s St Maarten FBO, located at Princess Juliana International Airport, has also taken over general aviation passenger handling for the airport’s main terminal after its roof was blown off during the hurricane.

Steven Kong, managing director, ExecuJet St Maarten FBO, added, “We would like to thank our customers for the tremendous support we received in the aftermath of the hurricane. As the island rebuilds, and hotels and resorts continue to reopen, I am delighted to announce that we will be returning to full strength very soon.”
