Jet Aviation now offers handling and ground support services from its newly opened FBO at Munich International Airport. The newest addition to Jet Aviation’s global FBO network will be managed by Klaus Besold.

The new Jet Aviation Munich FBO at Munich International Airport is the company’s third handling facility in Germany, including Berlin and Dusseldorf, and began operation in November 2014.  The company offers passenger handling, on-site immigration and customs clearance, transportation, hotel and catering coordination, as well as aircraft cleaning, de-icing and refueling. Available amenities include an executive lounge and conference room, a crew lounge, a snooze room, showers and flight planning facilities.

Klaus Besold has been appointed as station manager of Jet Aviation Munich and reports directly to Frank Kusserow, Jet Aviation’s FBO managing director in Germany. A 20-year handling veteran, Besold co-founded MES-Handling in Munich, which was sold to new ownership in 2008, under which he continued as general manager until 2012.

“We are very pleased to add Munich to our FBO network because of its importance to business aviation in Germany,” said Kusserow. “There are a number of major stock-listed companies in the region for which access to business aviation is essential. We are also happy to welcome Klaus Besold to our team. Klaus has worked at Munich Airport his entire career. He knows many of our customers and is well regarded for his dedication and quality service delivery.”
