Private Aviation & Premium Travel
Nasjet to benefit from Jet Aviation services

Nasjet has signed a fixed base operation (FBO) agreement with Jet Aviation under which the Swiss-headquartered firm will provide handling services through its global network of FBOs (fixed base operations) to the fleet of Nasjet aircraft.   

As the largest and fastest growing private jet operators in the Middle East, Nastjet operates a diverse international fleet of more than 70 aircraft. Jet Aviation currently manages 19 premium FBO facilities across Europe, the Middle East, Asia and North America. 

The two companies signed the agreement at the 2015 European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (Ebace), which was held in Geneva, last month.  

“We are always looking for strategic partners with whom we can ensure our customers receive personalised service and end-to-end support wherever they may be,” says Nasjet CEO Saad Al-Azwari. “Jet Aviation shares our values and our commitment to excellence and we look forward to a long and successful partnership with them.”  

“Our goal is to secure the greatest comfort and convenience for our customers by anticipating their needs,” says Monica Beusch, general manager of Jet Aviation Zurich and head of FBO Services in EMEA and Asia. “We look forward to welcoming the Nasjet fleet throughout our network and to adding value to their operation by assuring smooth travels on the ground.”  

Jet Aviation's fixed base operations provide customers with executive VIP terminals, conference rooms, business services, passenger and crew lounges, snooze rooms, crew showers and weather and flight planning services. The company offers private aircraft handling and full FBO services, including domestic and international flight handling, line maintenance services, refuelling, immigration and customs services, passenger and crew transportation, as well as catering, hotel accommodations and local transport arrangements.  

Founded in 1999 Nasjet is based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It manages and maintains a fleet of 70 fixed wing aircraft with an insured value in excess of $2 billion, and flies hundreds of VIPs to more than 10,000 airports around the world. 

The Nasjet core fleet is comprised of Airbus, Boeing Business Jet (BBJ), Gulfstream, and Hawker aircraft, and includes the largest fleet of Gulfstream aircraft in the Middle East.  

A wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics of the US, Jet Aviation was founded in Switzerland in 1967 and is one of the leading business aviation services companies in the world.
