W Aviation – a privately-owned international network of FBOs – based out of Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport – continues to expand and is proud to announce their newest facility and operation in Oranjestad, Aruba located at Queen Beatrix International Airport (TNCA) addressed Bucutiweg 33, Oranjestad, Aruba.

Taking over the existing general aviation facility, W Aviation Aruba will officially commence operations as of January 1, 2018 as the sole fixed based operator.

Covering 10 acres of land, the property currently houses a 4,000 sq. ft. executive terminal and ramp space for aircraft parking to handle all inbound and outbound general aviation traffic for the entire island.

To ensure the W Aviation Aruba clients receive the very best experiences in service and facilities, an investment of $1.8 million for interior refurbishment and major improvements to the existing property will commence in 2018 to include a state-of-the-art passenger lobby, customer service area, bistro bar, VIP passenger lounges, executive conference rooms, pilots lounge, flight planning room and more.

W Aviation’s Chief Executive Officer, Ignacio Martinez stated, “We are thrilled to announce our newest facility in Aruba and the continued expansion of our FBO network.

This is a milestone for our Company, as it not only gives us the opportunity to support our existing global charter fleet in the Caribbean but also allows for us to handle all of the GA traffic on the island. Aruba is the only Non-U.S Caribbean Island with U.S. Pre-Clearance Customs making it an ideal stop for aircraft traffic from South America and the Caribbean destined for the United States.”
