Australia: ExecuJet, part of the Luxaviation Group, is celebrating fixed-base operation (FBO) upgrades in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region as the company heads to the Avalon 2023 Australian International Airshow.

ExecuJet and Luxaviation Group will be attending the event which runs from February 28-March 5 2023, discussing plans and highlighting their latest achievements in the APAC region.

Darren McGoldrick, Luxaviation Asia Pacific, Vice President, says: “One topic will be the continuing improvements and expansion of our FBO network."

“We’re celebrating record movement numbers in 2022 at our ExecuJet bases in Sydney and Melbourne in Australia and Auckland in New Zealand. We only bought the Air Center One base at Auckland International Airport in January 2022, so we’re naturally thrilled with how well FBO has performed in our first year of ownership. The team there has done a fantastic job in delivering such a high level of service and managing client communications as we integrate the FBO into our brand."

Patrick Hansen, CEO, of Luxaviation Group, adds: “As the post-pandemic recovery continues, our business and leisure traffic across the APAC region is increasing not only domestically but also internationally. In fact, our movement numbers are rising even above pre-COVID levels."

“And we’re also still celebrating our two Australian FBOs gaining the International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling [IS-BAH] Stage Three accreditation in 2022."

“ExecuJet Sydney and Melbourne were not only the first FBOs in Australia or New Zealand to secure IS-BAH Stage Three accreditation but also the first FBOs in our global network to achieve this status."

IS-BAH Stage Three accreditation verifies our safety management activities are fully integrated into our business and we are sustaining a positive safety culture."

“We believe in the best, in service and safety, at Luxaviation Group and ExecuJet. Our commitment to IS-BAH is critical in delivering a consistently high level of service to our clients globally. We have been recognised for our high service standards in the latest AIN Survey results which ranked ExecuJet Sydney the number one FBO in Asia Pacific and in the Top Three globally outside of the US.”
