Jetex opens US operations
Jetex, a Dubai-based ground handling and trip planning company, has officially launched operations in the US market.
The US office is located adjacent to Miami International Airport. The Miami location will offer the full-range of Jetex support services, including trip planning, handling, permissions, flight plans and fuel, along with general logistics and concierge-related services.
Heather Satchwell, Jetex regional sales manager says: “The Miami office will serve as an important hub in our international network. Not only does it give our US customers local access to our services, it provides all customers with a strategic gateway into North America and easy access to both Latin and South America.”
Jetex is relocating some of its certified dispatchers and customer service staff to the Miami location.
Caterina Taylor, manager of North American Business Development adds: “Jetex is unique in that we combine trip planning with an extensive network of company-owned support offices and FBOs around the world. This is especially an advantage for US operators who can rest assured that no matter where they are going, Jetex will have someone who speaks both their language and the local language.”
Jetex works closely with Honeywell and has access to their Global Data Center (GDC) Flight Support Services. US customers will benefit from this support.
Michael Edmonds, Honeywell Aerospace vice president of Aerospace Services says: “Honeywell and Jetex are responding to increasing customer demand for critical flight support and innovative international trip services, and the opening of the Miami office allows us to bring these services closer to the customer.”
The new Miami office is the first step of a North American expansion plan for Jetex.
