ExecuJet is today announcing the acquisition of its first FBO in the Caribbean region, at Princess Juliana International Airport on the island of St. Maarten. ExecuJet’s St. Maarten FBO, acquired from TLC Aviation, takes the ExecuJet FBO network to 24 locations globally.

The St. Maarten FBO offers ground handling, fuelling, air charter, flight plans, executive transport and accommodation services for both customers and crew. In 2015, the FBO handled 1,868 movements from small light aircraft to large wide-bodied aircraft such as the A340-500.

Mike Berry, President, Aviation Services, ExecuJet, says: “We’re delighted to begin offering our customers support in the Caribbean region, which has been on our radar for a number of years. St. Maarten is the hub for the north-eastern Caribbean region, with access to mainland USA and Europe. Princess Juliana International Airport serves as a key location for the neighbouring islands and as such is ideally located to support the exclusive mega-yacht destinations of Anguilla, St. Barths and St. Kitts; the perfect complement to the private aviation market in the region.”

Steven Kong, Managing Director, TLC Aviation, says: “We are extremely proud of everything we have achieved in St. Maarten. ExecuJet, with its global experience and network, will strengthen TLC Aviation’s business and enable us to compete more effectively with the larger players in the area. We are a customer service oriented company with our team fully engaging in all aspects of the handling requirements; we learn our clients’ travelling habits and we become their handling family. We are confident that ExecuJet will continue this tradition, with all staff remaining in their respective positions and delivering the same exceptional level of customer service.”

With the acquisition completed, ExecuJet is now working closely with TLC Aviation to transition the business including the rebranding of the facility to ExecuJet’s corporate identity.
