San Juan leads the way with IS-BAH Stage II
Jet Aviation San Juan was the first FBO in Puerto Rico to qualify for IS-BAH Stage I registration in September 2018, even though its hangar was destroyed back in 2017. It has now gone one better with Stage II.
The San Juan hangar can accommodate up to three small to medium-sized aircraft and three large aircraft, up to the size of the Gulfstream G650 or the Global Express.

Jet Aviation has achieved IS-BAH Stage II registration for its FBO in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The San Juan FBO is a full-service handling operation at a convenient US point of entry for international flights. Jet Aviation acquired full ownership of the FBO at Luis Munoz Marin International in February 2019.

Jet Aviation San Juan was the first FBO in Puerto Rico to qualify for IS-BAH Stage I registration in September 2018.

“Between hurricanes, the ownership change and all the new systems that came with it, our team here in San Juan has had much to contend with the past few years and yet continues to raise the bar with new offerings and premium service delivery,” says Hector Vasquez, senior manager FBO. “The rigorous IS-BAH Stage II audit was a first for most of the team, and I couldn't be prouder of them.”

Jet Aviation's San Juan FBO facility features a pilot suite with a shower and snooze room, flight-planning workstations, an executive passenger lounge and corporate meeting facilities. As the only FBO in Puerto Rico with an onsite US Customs and Border Protection terminal, the company facilitates convenient customs, immigration and agriculture processing of international flights. It also offers parking, re-fuelling and aircraft maintenance, recently extending its services to include airline and cargo fuelling in addition to cargo handling.

After Hurricane Maria destroyed the San Juan hangar in 2017, Jet Aviation built a new 20,000 sq ft hangar that officially opened in June 2020. The hangar can accommodate up to three small to medium-sized aircraft and three large aircraft, up to the size of the Gulfstream G650 or the Global Express.

IS-BAH establishes criteria for best handling systems, processes and practices to ensure FBOs meet rigorous safety and security standards. With this recent approval, Jet Aviation has a total of 29 IS-BAH registered FBOs around the world, including 10 in the US, 12 in EMEA and seven in Asia Pacific.
