Pilot and actor John Travolta flew into Lanseria, South Africa, in his Boeing 707 from Buenos Aires into the ExecuJet facility. With him were wife Kelly Preston, and daughter Ella, to support the Australian national team in the World Cup.
ExecuJet South Africa is set to do record business during June and July. Its FBO facility handled 197 business jet movements in the first week of the World Cup.
Business jets are being parked on the ExecuJet apron, the Lanseria freight apron, as well as on the parallel runway 06R.
Approximately 160 different aircraft and over 350 movements are already confirmed to arrive at ExecuJet’s Lanseria FBO for the duration of the soccer tournament.
