Fast-expanding trip planning and handling specialist Jetex is increasing its French presence through a 15-city tie-up with airport management company Edeis, it said at the show this afternoon.
The Dubai-based operator is to operate the general aviation services at a range of secondary airports including Dijon, Rouen and Tours.
“This outsourcing arrangement adds value to our network in Europe,” says Adel Mardini, Jetex founder and chief executive. Jetex already runs fixed base operations at Marseilles and Paris Le Bourget, its European flagship, which it opened in 2009.
Jetex, which was established in 2005, has been expanding its FBO network in recent years. In Europe, it operates facilities in Barcelona, Madrid and Malaga, and will shortly open in Rome. Beyond the region, it has bases in Morocco as well as Toluca in Mexico and Santiago in Chile.
Its biggest FBO is at Dubai’s Al Maktoum airport. The facility, which includes a 1,500m2 lounge, opened in December.
