Universal Aviation opens Perth facility


Second FBO for Universal in Australia

Universal Aviation in Australia has opened its second location in the
country at Perth Airport and is now the only ground
handler capable of providing full ground support services in-house.

“Although we have been providing full
aircraft ground handling services in Sydney and coordination throughout the
rest of the country for many years, we are excited to now be able to offer
full-service capabilities at a second destination in Australia at Perth,”
said Adolfo Aragon, senior vice president, Universal Aviation. “Our 20,200
square-foot facility has the latest in modern amenities and security. The
facility offers operators total privacy, with easy landside access, including
car parking, privacy screening and complete electronic security.”

The new Universal Aviation Perth location,
which is open 24/7 all year round, features a full service FBO with a hangar
attached large enough to accommodate a Boeing 737 or an Airbus A320. Aircraft parking
is usually available on the ramp and in the hangar or within close proximity.

“As the second busiest business
aviation airport in Australia,
Perth was an ideal location to expand our
network and further strengthen our presence in Australia,” said Roger Cox,
managing director, Universal Aviation Australia. “We now have a physical
presence on both the eastern and western coasts of Australia, allowing us to better
serve our clients traveling in the region.”
