ExecuJet is expanding its presence in Sydney, Australia, with the acquisition of an FBO to complement its existing maintenance, flight operations and administration facility.
The ExecuJet Aviation Group, has opened a general aviation (GA) terminal at Bali International Airport to handle all unscheduled aircraft operations, including customs and immigration.
ExecuJet is initially operating from a temporary terminal covering 300m2 until a new 3,180m2 GA terminal is completed in December 2013. A purpose-built, 65,900m2 apron has been constructed adjacent to the new terminal, designed to handle all GA and business aircraft up to narrowbody airliners. The Bali facility is first terminal to be opened following the signing of a Memorandum of Cooperation in June 2012 for ExecuJet to exclusively design, construct and manage GA terminals at up to 13 airports managed by state-owned Indonesian aviation company Angkasa Pura I. This was followed by the signing of a Cooperation Agreement for the management of the Bali GA Terminal on 18 June 2013
Graeme Duckworth, managing director of ExecuJet Asia, says: "The launch of our Bali operations is ExecuJet's first step in establishing full operations in Indonesia, which is a strategically important location for our expansion in Southeast Asia. We look forward to providing the same high level of customer service found at our FBOs across the world."
Tommy Soetomo, CEO of Angkasa Pura I, adds: "The new facilities provide a service that is much needed for private jet operators in the region. Partnering with an experienced company such as ExecuJet enables us to provide world-class facilities to handle private aircraft and for passengers to enjoy convenient and efficient passage through customs, immigration and security.
