Jet Aviation has completed its acquisition of the KLM Jet Centre, with its two FBOs in Amsterdam and Rotterdam to become Jet Aviation branded facilities this October.
The acquisition of the KLM Jet Centre brings Jet Aviation’s global FBO network up to 34 locations, and the company says it represents “a significant step in strengthening Jet Aviation’s position as a leading FBO service provider in Europe.”
“Amsterdam and Rotterdam are highly attractive destinations to business jet owners and operators,” said Rob Smith, president of Jet Aviation. “The two FBOs support more than 7,500 annual movements and extend high connectivity to Jet Aviation network customers. Like us, the KLM Jet Center is known for its capabilities, expertise, strong values and commitment to customer service.”
The KLM Jet Centre offers ground handling, customer and crew services, flight planning and fuelling services to business and general aviation customers at both its locations in Amsterdam and Rotterdam international airports.
With the acquisition all 34 KLM Jet Centre employees will be welcomed to Jet Aviation.
Edwin Niemöller, who has served as FBO Director of the KLM Jet Center for more than a decade, will also continue in his role as head of the Amsterdam and Rotterdam FBOs.
