Jetex Flight Support marks another milestone in its growth history, with the announcement of a successful tender to provide FBO services at Ciampino-G.B.Pastine International Airport (CIA/LIRA) in Rome, Italy, the company said.

Set to open in the second half of 2017, the Ciampino FBO will herald Jetex´s entry to the Italian market and further expand the company´s European network, which encompasses locations including but not limited to France, Ireland, Spain, and Ukraine.

Based at the 1,800m2 GA terminal, the Jetex FBO will provide a range of ground support services including fueling, ground handling, aircraft parking, and ramp services. A full spectrum of flight support, ground transfer, and bespoke concierge services will also be available at the facility or via Jetex´s operations centers in Dubai, Miami and Beijing.
