ExecuJet acquires largest FBO at Munich International Airport
ExecuJet Aviation Group will offer handling and ground support services from its FBO at Munich International Airport following acquisition of the former European Business Aviation Services’ (EBAS International GmbH) facility.
The Munich FBO is ExecuJet’s second handling facility in Germany after Berlin Schoenefeld, and will begin operation in February 2016. This addition takes the ExecuJet FBO network to 20 locations across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Australasia.
“Germany is one of Europe’s largest business aviation markets and we are very excited to begin operations in our second FBO in the country.”
Gerrit Basson, CEO ExecuJet Aviation Group said: “Germany is one of Europe’s largest business aviation markets and we are very excited to begin operations in our second FBO in the country. Strategically, Munich is the perfect location because the international airport is one of the largest in Europe and is also the most punctual large airport within the EMEA region.”
“The General Aviation Terminal (GAT) is the most popular private jet airport in Germany. We look forward to offering our business customers ground handling and concierge services at the new facility as well as continuing to serve former customers of EBAS. We are very happy to add this FBO as a next step to actively growing our FBO network further,” added Basson.
“We are delighted ExecuJet’s vision for the business matches our own.”
Monika Petereit, general manager, EBAS said: “We are delighted ExecuJet’s vision for the business matches our own. The staff will remain in their respective positions, delivering the same excellent level of personalised service to clients who they have established excellent working relationships with over several years. Assisting in the handover phase, we have already seen how ExecuJet, with its global experience and network, will enhance the future of the business on an international level.”
