Jet Aviation announces today that it will relocate to a new and larger 600 square-meter facility area within the shared FBO terminal at Riyadh’s King Khalid International Airport. The airport is currently undergoing a massive overhaul to accommodate more traffic. Jet Aviation expects its new refurbished FBO to be operational by Q4 2019.
Celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year in Saudi Arabia, Jet Aviation continues to expand its locations and services in the Kingdom, and plans to provide FBO services from a newly refurbished 600 square-meter state-of-the art, double-story facility at Riyadh’s King Khalid International Airport (KKIA) by the end of 2019.
The well-appointed two-story FBO will be built to Jet Aviation global design standards most visible in the reception area and stylized furniture. On the ground floor, the facilities include the reception, one large customer lounge, three VIP lounges and a meeting room. The upper floor accommodates a Crew Lounge and office space. The facility also features an office located airside for handling and line crew.
“We are delighted to move our FBO to these newly refurbished, more spacious premises,” said Khaled Al-Ghamdi, general manager of Jet Aviation in Saudi Arabia. “With the expected traffic growth to Riyadh in the coming years, the additional space is necessary and offers great benefit in terms of passenger and crew comfort. As the country’s capital and main business center, Riyadh is a key strategic location for us and we are delighted to strengthen our brand through this investment.”
Jet Aviation's FBO services in Riyadh include passenger and baggage handling, immigration and customs clearance, transportation, hotel and catering coordination, aircraft refueling, interior deep cleaning, exterior wash and turnaround assistance.
