Botura to head up client services for Elite
Gustavo Botura will lead a team responsible for all proactive communications with prospective clients as Elite Jets continues emerging as a leading charter service in southwest Florida. He joined at launch in 2015.
Botura, who also has been a licensed helicopter pilot, earned a business management degree from Universidade Paulista in Brazil.

US Part 135 operator Elite Jets Charters has promoted Gustavo Botura to the newly-created position of director of client services. In his expanded role, Botura will lead a team responsible for all proactive communications with prospective clients as Elite Jets continues emerging as a leading charter service in southwest Florida. One of Botura's primary responsibilities will be fostering new business-to-business relationships. Elite Jets partners with companies and business executives in southwest Florida and across the US to schedule private, luxury transportation.

Previously, he served as Elite Jets' executive charter consultant, a role in which he worked one-on-one with clients to create customised travel experiences. Botura is one of Elite Jets' first employees, having been part of the Naples-based company's launch team in 2015 while helping arrange the purchase and delivery of five luxury jets. Today, Elite Jets has more than 35 employees and safely transports business and leisure travellers to destinations across North, Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean. In 2020, Elite Jets opened a private terminal at the Naples airport and expanded its concierge services.

Before joining Elite Jets, Botura worked in aviation sales and marketing, including several key roles with Embraer, the Brazilian-based manufacturer that built Elite Jets' Phenom 300 and Legacy 500 aircraft. After starting as a college intern with a landing gear company owned by Embraer, Botura's roles expanded to include delivery performance agent, supply analyst and sales contracts administrator for executive jets.
