Jet Aviation marked the expansion of flight services in the Caribbean on July 13 with the grand opening of a new Fixed Base Operation (FBO) in San Juan at the Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport. More than 150 guests including customers and industry members attended the event.

“Jet Aviation San Juan now delivers industry-best FBO and flight-management services to customers at this increasingly busy destination and one of the most convenient airports for international travel in the region,” said David Paddock, senior vice president and general manager, Jet Aviation Regional Operations USA. “It’s the only FBO in the Caribbean with an on-site, full-service U.S. Customs and Border Protection terminal that conveniently provides all of the customs, immigration and agricultural services our international customers need.”

Paddock said the new FBO facility features a modern design that includes 20,000 square feet for offices, meeting space, an executive passenger lounge, flight-planning workstations and a pilots’ suite. An expanding aircraft parking ramp offers capacity for increased traffic and room for additional hangar facilities as needed.

Jet Aviation is managing the recently-completed FBO through an agreement with Pazos, which has built a tradition of FBO excellence with an experienced, trained and professional staff over the last 25 years. The facility is a long-standing member of the Air Elite global network of exceptional FBOs. 

Pazos President Jose Maldonado said he was delighted to be partnering with Jet Aviation to advance the FBO to the next level of service and performance for customers.

The grand opening featured a welcome reception attended by customers, business and government leaders, airport executives, project developers and members of the aviation industry.
