By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Jeddah / Kingdom of Saudi Arabia – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine

Jet Aviation announces that the company will be moving into a new FBO facility in Jeddah by the end of 2010. Jet Aviation will be providing FBO and line maintenance services from a new, state-of-the art facility at Jeddah’s King Abdulaziz International Airport.

The new Jet Aviation FBO building, located at Jeddah’s King Abdulaziz International Airport north of Jeddah, offers fast access to King Abdullah Economic City and the Kind Abdullah University. The 3,000-square-meter FBO facility incorporates an innovative passenger flow system. Arrivals, departures and luggage handling functions, including 24/7 border police and customs clearance, occur in different zones to provide faster turn times, better security and enhanced privacy.

The facility offers comfortable passenger and crew lounges, refreshment areas with hot and cold snacks, a newspaper service offering nearly 1,000 different daily and monthly publications, and a 24-hour shuttle to Jeddah’s International terminal. The latest technology in weather briefing and flight planning along with snooze rooms and lounges will be available for flight crews as well.

Frank Kusserow, vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation Saudi Arabia, says: “We are very pleased to move into this new and state-of-the art facility which will provide us with the opportunity to better serve passengers and flight crews.”

Christof Spaeth, senior vice president MRO and FBO services for Jet Aviation EMEA & Asia, adds: “In addition to increased passenger comfort the new premises will allow the company to strengthen its global network and maintenance footprint by expanding its line and maintenance service capabilities in the region.”

Jet Aviation Saudi Arabia operates two FBOs in Jeddah and Riyadh since 1979 and 1983 respectively. Both facilities offer FBO services, line maintenance and aircraft-on-ground (AOG) services to private, business and military operators. The two locations each hold Saudi Arabian PCA licenses.
