Jet Access Aviation to establish new hub at Miami-Opa Locka

Jet Access Aviation has announced it is setting up a new hub at Fontainebleau Aviation, a Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport – ahead of February’s Super Bowl LIV in Miami.

Fontainebleau is one of service providers on the airfield at Miami, and has more than 220,000 sq ft of hangar space, along with business aircraft maintenance and detailing capabilities.

“We’re excited to have the opportunity to team with Jet Access,” said Bobby Courtney, the FBO’s vice president. “Being able to combine the aviation experience, with our portfolio of South Beach hotels, golf courses, and water parks will give the client full access to the lifestyle.”

It will provide Palm Beach-based Jet Access’s fleet of 24 jets and two turboprops, ranging from a Beechcraft King Air 90 to Bombardier Challenger 605, with an operating base in the Miami-area, which has seen increasing demand for charter, according to the aircraft charter and management firm.

Jet Access, which noted the move will help mitigate repositioning legs and allow it to keep its charter rates competitive, will have an office in the 15,000-sq-ft terminal while its customers can access a private lounge.

“Fontainebleau properties are a proven brand in South Florida,” said Jet Access president and CEO Jack Lambert. “To be able to call their five-star location home is a game-changer for our operation and our clients.”
