Jetex Paris Le Bourget is celebrating its first 10 years as a fixed base operator. The terminal, spread over 1,400 sqm, boasts Jetex signature amenities that include three stunning executive lounges, balcony and private nap room.

In 2014 Paris-Le Bourget airport celebrated its centenary, underlining its reputation as an historically significant site, as well as a vital airport for the travellers of today. In 1914, during WW1, Captain Lucca founded Le Bourget when he was looking for a suitable place to defend Paris during the war. This lead to Le Bourget airport officially opening for commercial use in 1919.
Located just north of Paris, it is the busiest airport dedicated to general aviation in Europe and home to the longest established FBO that is also the most trusted choice for operators in the Jetex network. Jetex Le Bourget is proud to be France's first FBO facility to exceed the demanding standards laid out in both the IS-BAH and Safety 1st programmes, both of which manage standards of best practice in the global aviation industry. This year the terminal was also awarded five stars by the Global Star Rating System.
Jetex CEO Adel Mardini says, “It is an extremely exciting and proud time for us to be celebrating 10 years since the launch of our first fixed base operator. Since 2010, the number of flights it has handled has passed 9,000 per year and I attribute this success to the dedication of our talented and hardworking team. We are proud to see customers returning to Jetex, a strong sign of their trust in us. I look forward to seeing the company continue to lead the private aviation industry into its next 10 years of growth and development.”
