ExecuJet Expands into Lagos

By Aviation Pros

The latest addition to ExecuJet’s global FBO network is located at Murtala Muhammed International Airport. Measuring over 3,000 square metres, the facility has direct access to the main runway and taxiway. From this base, ExecuJet Africa will offer a comprehensive range of services including maintenance, FBO, charter and aircraft management services.
The FBO, which will commence operations by 1 October 2012, will offer state-of-the-art ground support equipment, a VIP lounge and 24-hour support capabilities. World-class passenger and crew amenities will be provided by a team of experienced staff, able to offer technical assistance, flight planning, weather reports, catering, fuelling and hotel accommodation. Services will be further enhanced in the coming months with the introduction of on-site customs and immigration services.
With a secure access way from the main road, the FBO features a wide concrete apron with ample aircraft parking space. Amongst the first aircraft to be based at the FBO will be two ExecuJet business jets fully available for charter.
From its new base, ExecuJet Africa will offer authorised line maintenance support for Bombardier, Dassault Falcon and Hawker Beechcraft aircraft. The well-appointed 2,100 square metre maintenance hangar will offer a wide range of amenities including offices, parts storage and workshop areas.
Mark Abbott, ExecuJet Group FBO Director, says: “ExecuJet’s new Lagos FBO is a direct response to the vibrant growth taking place in this business gateway to Africa. The facility will offer the same outstanding customer experience as our award-winning FBOs in Cape Town and Lanseria, with full MRO and technical support capabilities.”
ExecuJet Africa has gone to great lengths to establish a larger footprint in Africa to meet the growing needs of the group’s customers. The company’s commitment to the development of African business has been demonstrated through ExecuJet’s participation in several of the region’s leading trade exhibitions this year. Etti Poggi, Managing Director of ExecuJet Africa, comments: “Africa needs modern, safety-regulated aviation services to facilitate the expansion of many industry sectors. ExecuJet is committed to meeting that requirement and contributing to the advancement of an efficient, high-growth African economy.”
