ExecuJet, part of the Luxaviation Group, is announcing the opening of a new FBO facility in the Seychelles. 

ExecuJet’s Seychelles FBO, to be officially opened on 1 August 2018, is located at Seychelles International Airport on the island of Mahé and will be operated by ExecuJet in partnership with Euro Aviation Limited.

The new facility will be available to all categories of general aviation and will offer full FBO and ground handling services including aircraft parking and fuel co-ordination, VIP passenger and crew support services, flight planning and flight permit assistance and co-ordination. Discreet and secure airside transfers will be provided to and from the aircraft at the domestic and international terminals.

Gavin Kiggen, Vice President, ExecuJet Africa, says: “Our new FBO in the Seychelles will provide all ExecuJet VIP clients with direct access to one of the most beautiful locations in the world. Customers will experience our seamless VIP services in a new and exciting environment. Our team of aviation experts is well-suited to accommodate all requests and requirements and we look forward to showcasing our services in the Seychelles.”

Ettore Poggi, Group FBO Director, Luxaviation Group, says: “It is a vital part of our growth plan for the Luxaviation Group to open facilities in new locations, and where better to welcome our VIP clients and crews than this wonderful group of islands in the Indian Ocean. We are excited to be welcoming another facility to our global network and look forward to extending our service offering by opening more in the future.”

Mr Abdul Jalil, CEO of Euro Aviation, says: “We are delighted that ExecuJet will fully operate and manage this exciting FBO and look forward to making the Seychelles a destination of choice for many dignitaries and VIP users of General Aviation.” 

The Seychelles FBO joins ExecuJet’s network of African facilities, alongside those at Lanseria and Cape Town International airports in South Africa and Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos, Nigeria. This new facility brings ExecuJet’s total number of FBOs to 27 worldwide.

ExecuJet is now ready to start processing requests through its Seychelles office at fbo.fsia@execujet.sc.
