Jet Aviation has acquired full ownership of the San Juan FBO, at Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport, in Puerto Rico.
Jet Aviation has been operating the San Juan FBO under a management agreement with the previous owner, since March 2017, when the FBO was rebranded as Jet Aviation.
David Paddock, senior vice president and general manager at Jet Aviation regional operations in the USA, said: “Our goal is to deliver business aviation services as close to demand as possible, while ensuring consistency across our growing global network. Jet Aviation operates 10 FBOs in the US and Caribbean.”
Mr Paddock said a new, larger hangar will open in the first quarter of 2019 to replace the one destroyed by the Hurricane Maria in 2017.
The hangar, which is 20,000 square feet of hangar space and 2,500 square feet of office space, will offer customers parking facilities, refueling, third-party aircraft maintenance, meeting space, an executive passenger lounge, flight-planning workstations, and a pilots’ suite.
The San Juan FBO also includes a full-service, onsite US Customs and Border Protection terminal to facilitate convenient customs, immigration and agriculture processing of international flights.
