Jetex announces it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with AERIA airport management company to be the exclusive FBO operator and manager of the newly built FBO in Abidjan, the economic capital of Côte d’Ivoire.
Jetex made the announcement during the 2018 European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, Switzerland.
For the current FBO—at the Félix-Houphouët-Boigny International Airport—the handover is scheduled for July of this year.
“We are happy to appoint Jetex as the sole and exclusive FBO operator in Abidjan,” said Mr.Gilles Darriau, C.E.O. of AERIA. “Jetex has high standards for FBOs, which is exactly what we were looking for.”
“We chose Abidjan because it is an economic powerhouse for West Africa. It’s a very urbanized and industrial city,” said Jetex President (Europe) Salem Youssef. “We’re excited to offer VIP service and become the first to do so I the region. We’re looking forward to welcoming passengers at our new FBO very soon.”
This adds to the Jetex portfolio with our first FBO in West Africa and the second location in the region after Morocco. This 1000 m2 location is expected to open by July 2018 with full VIP services.
A full spectrum of flight support, ground transfer, and bespoke concierge services will also be available via Jetex’s operations centers in Dubai, Miami, and Beijing.
