Aircraft maintenance and charter provider Execujet has announced its intention to launch a new UK FBO in an as yet undisclosed location, following its departure from Cambridge Airport.
The business aviation company announced its exit from the Cambridge facility after the airport’s owners, Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group, decided to bring FBO services in-house.
“After nearly eight successful years of operations in Cambridge, the time is right to seek a new facility with extended capabilities,” said Niclas von Planta, Vice President, ExecuJet Europe.
“This move marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter of expansion for us. ExecuJet has long been known for leading the industry in FBO safety and service, and the establishment of a new facility in the UK will give us the opportunity to uphold those standards on a larger scale.”
Von Planta added that a reduction in operating hours at Cambridge Airport, with no flights at weekends, also contributed to Execujet’s decision to seek a move elsewhere.
“With the expected closure of Cambridge Airport by 2030, our next UK FBO will allow us to deliver our award-winning services to our clients long term,” said Ettore Poggi, Group FBO Director, ExecuJet.
“I would like to thank the customers, partners and friends that we have encountered in our time at Cambridge over the years, and we will be working closely with the airport to ensure a smooth transition, from our new offices in Newmarket, Suffolk.”
