Jet Aviation acquires San Juan FBO
San Juan's FBO rebranded in 2017 under the Jet Aviation banner and was the first Puerto Rico FBO to achieve Stage 1 IS-BAH registration. Jet Aviation has now made the transition from management to full ownership.
Having managed the San Juan FBO since March 2017, Jet Aviation has now made a full acquisition.

Jet Aviation has acquired full ownership of the San Juan FBO at Luis Munoz Marin International airport in Puerto Rico that it has been operating under a management agreement with the previous owner, Pazos, since March 2017.

“Bringing the San Juan FBO completely under Jet Aviation management reinforces our commitment to our customers, our employees and the region,” says regional operations USA senior vice president and general manager David Paddock. “Our goal is to deliver business aviation services as close to demand as possible while ensuring consistency across our growing global network. Jet Aviation operates 10 FBOs in the US and Caribbean. San Juan is a high-performing FBO with excellent long-term growth prospects and we are delighted to fully bring it into our fold.”

A new, larger hangar will open in the first quarter of 2019 to replace the one destroyed by Hurricane Maria in 2017. With 20,000 sq ft of hangar space and 2,500 sq ft of office space, it will offer customers parking facilities, refuelling, third-party aircraft maintenance, meeting space, an executive passenger lounge, flight-planning workstations and a pilots’ suite. The San Juan FBO also includes a full-service, on-site US Customs and Border Protection terminal to facilitate customs, immigration and agriculture processing of international flights.

Hector Vasquez will continue in his role as FBO director and serve as general manager at San Juan. He has worked in FBO services for 34 years and was at Jet Aviation Teterboro for 26 years before moving to San Juan in 2018.
