ExecuJet Europe is marking the fifth anniversary of its Berlin Sch?nefeld FBO this month. During this time the facility has grown significantly, now handling around 3,000 movements a year. Aircraft visiting have been as large as the Boeing BBJ, Airbus Corporate Jet and Boeing 767, highlighting ExecuJet’s capability to competently handle the full range of business aircraft from small to large cabin aircraft. The ExecuJet Berlin Sch?nefeld facility is now home to an expanded 25 dedicated personnel, providing fast and exclusive VIP passenger handling for all arriving and departing business aircraft.
Nicole Gut, ExecuJet European FBO Director said: “We are delighted to celebrate our fifth anniversary. Our brand and expertise was recognised in January 2010 when we successfully won the bid to manage the airport’s General Aviation terminal (GAT) and again earlier this year when we were proud to receive the Shell Gold Service Award, which recognises the high standards of safety and security that we provide at ExecuJet for both our passengers and visiting flight crew.”
ExecuJet is the only full service FBO at Berlin Sch?nefeld, offering a host of amenities and facilities. These include a VIP passenger lounge and conference room, a crew lounge and briefing room, towing, lavatory and water services, catering, fuel supply, as well as landing and overflight permits. A limousine transfer service was introduced this summer to aid swift transfers to the city and beyond. ExecuJet regularly supports incentive and event travel and it has secured deals with several leading hotels in the region.
ExecuJet is the only aviation company based on the general aviation ramp with its own fuel trucks (Shell has two trucks positioned at the business aviation facility) and five ramp personnel able to provide refuelling services, which affords valuable time saving benefits to business aviation customers. The GAT lobby underwent a light refurbishment this summer which saw its lounge enhanced. ExecuJet has also enjoyed a long standing relationship with maintenance provider LBAS at Sch?nefeld Airport.
Building on its success in Berlin, the company is eyeing the potential for an expanded FBO network in Germany and possibly adding to its capabilities in Berlin. Establishing more European FBOs has been high on the companies agenda over the last 12 months and will continue to be so for the coming year. Since October last year ExecuJet Europe has increased its European FBO offering from two to nine with the addition of five FBOs in Spain, a partnership FBO in Paris and most recently the announcement at NBAA in October that ExecuJet has won the tender to run the FBO at the UK’s Cambridge Airport, effective January 2012.
