The ExecuJet FBO in Zurich neighbours Jet Aviation’s site

The move gives the General Dynamics business a second FBO in the country’s largest city, with two additional hangars and private ramps. ExecuJet’s site is next to Jet Aviation’s.

Stefan Benz, senior vice-president of regional operations for the EMEA region, says the acquisition will allow Jet Aviation to offer customers more hangar space, and “significantly expand” its European charter offering.
