Jetex doubles down in location expansion


FBOs / SOUTH AMERICA | 17/11/2015

Jetex Flight Support recently expanded its FBO network through the addition of two new locations in Tokyo – marking the company’s entree in Japan – and another one in Toluca, Mexico.

The FBO and trip support services provider entered into a licensing agreement with Air Contrail for Air Contrail’s Aircraft Handling Centers at Tokyo’s Haneda (HND) and Narita (NRT) Airports to become branded Jetex Flight Support locations. As part of the agreement, Air Contrail will re-brand and operate its handling services under the Jetex brand and trade name.

“We see great potential in the region and we are excited to extend our global reach there,” comments Jetex President & CEO Adel Mardini. “Asia-Pacific is an important market for us and we plan to continue our strategic expansion throughout the region.”

“Japan is […] an important player in the international community,” adds Air Contrail President & CEO Toru Oshima. “Plus, the Tokyo Olympics will be held in 2020 so we will see a rapid increase in demand for inbound business jets.”

Another addition to Jetex’ network occurred through an agreement with Mexican aviation services provider EOLO for the company’s FBO at Toluca International (TLC). As with the licensing agreements for HND and NRT, the EOLO TLC FBO will become a co-branded facility as well and will start operating as Jetex-EOLO as of this month.

“We have been working diligently on our presence in Latin America and 2015 has seen the company grow from strength to strength in the region,” further explains Mardini. “By partnering with some of the region’s most prominent names, we aim to expand our service offerings and ensure the clients in Latin America have their needs met.” Toluca is the most important airport in Mexico for Business Aviation with Mexico being the second biggest market for Business Aviation in Latin America.
