The three private jet centres are part of Cyprus-registered RSS Enterprises and were originally owned by Ocean Sky – made famous by the James Bond film Quantum of Solace – which was forced into liquidation towards the end of 2012.

All three locations will be re-branded as Landmark Aviation.

Dan Bucaro, president and CEO of Landmark Aviation, says: “We are excited to expand our operations into the UK. This acquisition increases our presence in Europe and is representative of our commitment to the strategic growth of our network.”

The FBO at London Luton Airport includes a VIP lounge, passenger lobby, coffee bar, crew amenities and an executive conference room. Corporate Jet Investor spoke to Eddie Allison, group managing director of RSS Jet Centre Ltd, when RSS first took over the facility in October 2012.
