EBACE: Jetex expands global network to Abidjan

Posted 31 May 2018 · Add Comment

Jetex has announced it has signed an MOU with AERIA airport management company to be the exclusive FBO operator and manager of the newly built FBO in Abidjan, the economic capital of Côte d'Ivoire.

For the current FBO—at the Félix-Houphouët-Boigny International Airport—the handover is scheduled for July of this year.

“We are happy to appoint Jetex as sole and exclusive FBO operator in Abidjan,” said Gilles Darriau, CEO of AERIA. “Jetex has high standards for FBOs, which is exactly what we were looking for.”

“We chose Abidjan because it is an economic powerhouse for West Africa. It’s a very urbanized and industrial city,” said Jetex President (Europe) Salem Youssef. “We’re excited to offer VIP service and become the first to do so in the region. We’re looking forward to welcoming passengers at our new FBO very soon.”

This adds to the Jetex portfolio with our first FBO in West Africa and second location in the region after Morocco. This 1,000 m2 location is expected to open by July 2018 with full VIP services.
 
A full spectrum of flight support, ground transfer, and bespoke concierge services will also be available via Jetex’s operations centers in Dubai, Miami, and Beijing.
 
AERIA (International Airport of Abidjan) is part of the wider EGIS airports network, which includes 17 airports across 8 countries.
