ExecuJet Australia expands and extends
ExecuJet is expanding its presence Australia, through the acquisition of an FBO at Sydney’s Kingsford-Smith Airport, to complement its existing maintenance, flight operations and administration facility.
The recently renovated FBO consists of a dedicated VIP guest lounge, passenger amenities and private meeting rooms for guests in transit and Customs & Immigration processing facilities.
“The Sydney FBO allows us to welcome more clients to the area and opens up another great opportunity for business aviation in Australia,” says ExecuJet Asia Pacific VP Darren McGoldrick. “We have wanted to incorporate an FBO into the facility for some time, in order to meet demand. The FBO will employ 20 staff members including management, ramp coordinators, customer service agents and administration staff.”

This news follows hard on the heels of the extension granted to ExecuJet Maintenance Australia to perform maintenance services on the Embraer Phenom 300. The facility already serves the Embraer ERJ 135 and 145, the Legacy 600 and 650 and the Phenom 100.
“The first Embraer Phenom 300 in Australia arrived in January,” comments ExecuJet Australasia Maintenance Director Grant Ingall. “It represents a great opportunity for ExecuJet, and we are excited to add it to our portfolio of Embraer aircraft that we are authorised to maintain at our service centres in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. The addition of the Phenom 300 is a logical extension to our great relationship with Embraer.”
