Aspiring astronaut opens Cambridge FBO
The official opening of Cambridge City airport's new Jet Centre FBO gave aspiring astronaut Dr Jaclyn Bell and Lady Marshall an opportunity to tour the facility, which opened in November after refurbishment.

Cambridge City airport's new Jet Centre FBO has been officially opened by aspiring astronaut Dr Jaclyn Bell and Lady Marshall, wife of the late Sir Michael Marshall, former chairman of the Marshall Group which includes Cambridge airport.

They unveiled a plaque commemorating the occasion before touring the facility, starting at the security scanner at the entrance. This is one of the few UK regional FBOs giving passengers an early personal and baggage X-ray before departure.

Dr Bell said: “It is a tremendous honour to open this new FBO, and especially to meet Lady Marshall, whose late husband was such an inspiration to those aspiring to a career in aviation or aerospace. I am really impressed by the quality of the facilities here at the Jet Centre, not only does it look fantastic but everything has been designed to make life as easy as possible for passengers.”

The new Cambridge Jet Centre began welcoming executive business customers in November and has undergone major refurbishment over recent months. Investment has provided enhanced facilities for air crew and passengers with early scanning through to the executive VIP lounge and conference centre.

Dr Bell, an academic, aviator and astronaut-hopeful, appeared in the BBC TV programme 'Astronauts: Do You Have What It Takes?' in 2017 and won the Sir Michael Marshall Award for Diversity sponsored by Cambridge City airport in The Air Charter Association Excellence Awards 2019.
