ExecuJet to open FBO and MRO in New Delhi


ExecuJet Aviation Group is set to expand into the Indian market, following a successful tender bid for new FBO and MRO facilities at Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi, India. Together with its Indian partner, The Bird Group, ExecuJet has been awarded one of a limited number of licenses to develop, construct and operate an FBO and an MRO facility as part of the airport’s overall development strategy.

“We have had India on our radar for many years,” said Mike Berry, vice president of ExecuJet Middle East. “These new facilities will provide ExecuJet with the platform to expand our geographic footprint and service proposition, in line with our own growth strategy. I congratulate Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) for running a transparent tender process.”

“We are delighted to be partnering with The Bird Group,” said Gerrit Basson, chief executive officer of ExecuJet Aviation Group. “Headquartered in New Delhi, with over 40 years of experience in India and expertise in aviation services, they are the perfect partner for this expansion program.”

“A maintenance, planning and engineering team will be in place within the next three months,” said Berry. “The business will be expanded as the managed fleet and customer base increases, handled by a highly experienced management team and supported by FBO One management software.”
