Jet Aviation intends to open a branded FBO and tenant hangar at Scottsdale Airport in Arizona by late 2020, having acquired a stake in Scottsdale Jet Center. The company already has tenant facilities at the airport.
Jet Aviation says the new facility will allow it to operate FBOs in eight of the top 15 US business aviation markets. Once opened, Scottsdale Jet Center will bring Jet Aviation’s global FBO network up to 35 locations.
“We are committed to growing Jet Aviation’s position as a leading FBO service provider,” said Dave Paddock, senior vice president and general manager, Jet Aviation Regional Operations USA. “Scottsdale is a highly attractive location to business jet owners and operators and is regularly ranked in the top 15 US airports. Having a presence in Scottsdale will enable our customers to have greater connectivity across the Jet network.”
Scottsdale Jet Center currently leases 45,000ft² (4,181m²) of office space, 24,000ft² (2,230m²) of T-hangar space, tie-down spaces and shades. Planning for the new FBO terminal and 30,000ft² (2,787m²) hangar is underway, with the opening planned for late 2020. Thereafter, Jet Aviation plans additional phases of development to support customer demand.
