ExecuJet Africa wins African business aviation award in Kenya
ExecuJet Africa won the Outstanding Services to African Aviation Development award at the African Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition held in Nairobi, Kenya on 27-29 May 2013.
Ettore Poggi, managing director of ExecuJet Africa, said “We are committed to supporting Africa’s economic development and are honoured to be recognised with this award. We have worked hard to build our facilities and services as business aviation develops in the region. We are extremely pleased that our FBO and maintenance facility in Lagos, which has been operational for just over a year, is being recognised by international and local operators for its exceptional service. Our managed fleet has grown to over 60 aircraft and we are pleased to be seen as the supplier of choice for aircraft management services in Africa.”
The company plans to continue its growth on the African continent.
ExecuJet Africa had a busy period of aircraft movements during the 23rd World Economic Forum on Africa, held from 8-10 May in Cape Town. The event was attended by more than 1,000 business and government leaders from around 80 countries.
The company handled a large number of business aircraft at Cape Town International Airport, reporting an increase of 15% on last year’s event.
The Cape Town facility had numerous types of aircraft parked on the apron, including a BBJ, Global 6000s, Gulfstream 550s and Falcon 7Xs.
