Jetex to open first US FBO


Jetex Flight Support will enter the United States FBO market, with the launch of a Jetex-branded private terminal service at San Bernadino International Airport in California. The new agreement will see the company deliver the ground handling services at the Luxivair terminal, the only FBO facility at the airport.

The two-story terminal features a glass-enclosed atrium lobby, and offers ramp-side vehicle access, a pilots lounge, snooze room, flight-planning room, conference facilities and crew cars.

Adel Mardini, CEO and president at Jetex said: “The Luxivair San Bernadino Terminal is a truly outstanding facility, and fully in keeping with the exceptional standards of luxury the Jetex name has become synonymous with. It is a logical choice for us to partner with Luxivair SBD to launch our first FBO service in North America, which joins our state-of -the-art operations center in Miami to provide coast-to-coast presence. This is set to be the first of many openings, as we continue to develop our network both within the United States and on a global scale.”

Guests also have access to a range of concierge services, a free snack bar, a movie theatre, and an outdoor lounge area complete with a panoramic view of the airport and the San Bernardino Mountains.

Passengers will also benefit from on-site US Customs officials.

Mike Burrows, executive director of Luxivair Sanbernadino and San Bernadino International Airport said: “Jetex is a world leader in our industry, and Luxivair SBD is proud to support their continued growth into the U.S. and other markets through this integral co-branding partnership – a relationship we are confident will seamlessly complement the incredible Jetex customer service experience.”
