Bombardier and Jetex announced Tuesday (13 October) that they would join forces to develop an FBO in Singapore. Bombardier is expanding its footprint in the Lion City already at its Singapore Service Centre at Seletar Aerospace Park to transform this facility into a high-capacity, one-stop-shop offering customers a full suite of services required throughout an aircraft’s life. Part of this major expansion is the introduction of Jetex’s FBO and ground handling systems to provide operators and passengers with service from arrival to departure.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with a service provider of this calibre as part of the expansion of Bombardier’s Singapore Service Centre, a key hub for business aviation in the Asia-Pacific region,” said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, executive vice president, Service and Support, and Corporate Strategy, Bombardier Aviation. “Jetex shares Bombardier’s commitment to delivering the exceptional service that customers demand and deserve.”
Singapore becomes Jetex’s fourth destination in Asia-Pacific after Tokyo (Haneda and Narita) and Osaka.
“We’re optimistic about the possibilities for growth in the Asia-Pacific region and very excited to be adding Singapore to our network,” said Adel Mardini, founder and CEO, Jetex. “In 2019, Singapore experienced very strong demand for private jets. They had an increase of 16 percent compared to 2018. So, we’re going to meet the rising demand with an exceptional FBO and exemplary operational support.”
