Boise, Idaho-based Jackson Jet has acquired Swift Aviation. From 26 January, it will begin operations at its new facility located at Phoenix Sky Harbor International airport in Arizona.

While Jackson Jet has served the Phoenix region with charter services since commencing operations in Boise in 2005, the Sky Harbor location will be its second FBO facility, bringing fuel and ground services, management and operations to a new customer base. The company plans to update and make several investments to the Phoenix FBO with the goal of making it one of the top FBOs in the region.

“A big thank you goes out to our loyal customers and employees. We’re always interested in ways to grow our footprint and bring top shelf services to a wider customer base,” says CEO Jeff Jackson. “We’re excited the right opportunity came along to both grow ourselves and the services we offer our customers at Sky Harbor.”

The acquisition will bolster Jackson Jet’s presence in the intermountain west, which includes an FBO and full charter, maintenance and parts operations in Boise, maintenance operations in Sun Valley, Idaho and an aircraft based in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
