Jet Services takes a majority stake in Darta Group
Two of the leading business aircraft support and operations companies in France have been brought together in December, when Jet Services Group took control of the Darta Group.

Two of the leading business aircraft support and operations companies in France have been brought together in December, when Jet Services Group took control of the Darta Group.

The acquisition of a majority stake in the long-established Darta is a major step in Jet Services' plan to expand its full range of activities at Le Bourget airport. The group is already present there in the form of a terminal handling service (Advanced Air Support in conjunction with ExecuJet), a maintenance hub, and an aerial photography business. In the coming months, major investment will be involved in the construction of a hangar for wide-bodied aircraft and an upmarket business aviation terminal, as well as the construction of the 'Courtyard by Marriott' hotel.

Both Jet Services (as Aerovision) and Darta operate fleets of Falcon and Beechcraft aircraft.

The Darta Group was founded in 1971 by Yves Darnaudet and has been established at Le Bourget airport for 40 years.

Darta Transport AĆ©rien operates the aircraft, Escadrille Mercure provides ground handling and client reception, and Aero Jets Darta offers business aviation chartering of all types of aircraft worldwide thanks to its Parisian travel agency, AA Aviation, and its Nantes Atlantique office.
