General Aviation in Schönefeld will be operated by a new service provider / High quality service assured / Strengthening of Business Aviation in Germany’s capital

Berlin Airports will hand the operation of the General Aviation Terminal (GAT) at Berlin-Schönefeld Airport over to ExecuJet Europe this Friday. ExecuJet was successful in winning the Europe-wide tender and will be responsible for the handling of all business aviation movements in future.

ExecuJet will provide fast and exclusive VIP passenger handling for all arriving and departing business aircraft, building on its success in Berlin Schönefeld over the past years. It opened a newly refurbished and enlarged fixed base operation (FBO) at the airport in autumn 2008. Its two-floor 400m2 facility includes a crew lounge and operations briefing room, VIP passenger lounges and conference facilities. In addition, ExecuJet offers all aviation services for private or charter aircraft, including fuelling, handling and aircraft parking.

Prof. Dr. Rainer Schwarz, spokesperson of Berlin Airports' management commented: "ExecuJet is a very experienced partner for Berlin Airports in the field of business aviation and thus an excellent choice to handle GAT. Business aviation in the capital of Germany will be enhanced as a result."

Tobias Laps, General Manager ExecuJet Germany said: "This is terrific testimony to our team's hard work and dedication to business aviation and FBO operations at Schönefeld.  We are delighted with this recognition and look forward to taking on this responsibility very much."

Today's Schönefeld Airport will become Berlin Brandenburg International BBI and with the GAT in the reliable hands of private aviation specialist ExecuJet, Berlin Airports are ensuring a consistently high class of service to VIP clients.

Schwarz continued: "Business aviation in Schönefeld and later at the BBI is located in a prime position. Business travellers pass towards the GAT before arriving at the main airport terminal where efficient and professional handling awaits. Few airports offer such convenience and ease to their awaiting business jet."
