ExecuJet acquires first Caribbean FBO
ExecuJet has acquired its first FBO at Princess Juliana International Airport on the island of St. Maarten, its first in the Caribbean region. The FBO was acquired from TLC Aviation, and adds to the 23 Execujet worldwide FBO network.
The St. Maarten FBO offers ground handling, fuelling, air charter, flight plans, executive transport and accommodation services for both customers and crew.
“We’re delighted to begin offering our customers support in the Caribbean region, which has been on our radar for a number of years.”
Mike Berry, president, Aviation Services, ExecuJet, said: “We’re delighted to begin offering our customers support in the Caribbean region, which has been on our radar for a number of years. St. Maarten is the hub for the north-eastern Caribbean region, with access to mainland USA and Europe. Princess Juliana International Airport serves as a key location for the neighbouring islands and as such is ideally located to support the exclusive mega-yacht destinations of Anguilla, St. Barths and St. Kitts; the perfect complement to the private aviation market in the region.”
Steven Kong, managing director, TLC Aviation added: “We are extremely proud of everything we have achieved in St. Maarten. ExecuJet, with its global experience and network, will strengthen TLC Aviation’s business and enable us to compete more effectively with the larger players in the area. We are a customer service oriented company with our team fully engaging in all aspects of the handling requirements; we learn our clients’ travelling habits and we become their handling family. We are confident that ExecuJet will continue this tradition, with all staff remaining in their respective positions and delivering the same exceptional level of customer service.”
