Skyservice Business Aviation is expanding its full-service business aviation operations to Vancouver International airport, Canada. Skyservice Vancouver will offer FBO, MRO, charter, aircraft management and aircraft sales and acquisition services. This property is the 11th full-service private jet centre for Skyservice. The company has two additional locations specifically designated for avionics, aircraft upgrades and heavy maintenance in Muskoka, Ontario and the newly acquired 80,000 sq ft hangar at Montreal-Trudeau International airport.

“We are thrilled to add Vancouver to our growing network of award-winning business aviation jet centres in Canada and the US Pacific Northwest,” comments Benjamin Murray, president and CEO, Skyservice. “Increasingly, business aviation clients are looking for providers who deliver full aircraft support, from aircraft consultation and management to maintenance and full ground and fuel support with impeccable fixed-base operation facilities. We are proud to now offer this level of service in Vancouver.”

The company has agreed to a long-term lease with World Fuel Services at Canada's second-busiest airport with plans to modernise the existing property and further invest in the buildout of the location's business aviation service capacity.

Skyservice is committed to providing high quality business aviation service and support across North America. In February, the company will open in Napa, California and begin work on a new private jet hangar in Seattle to replace its Boeing Field site. This past year, Skyservice also finished construction of a new FBO facility in Redmond, Oregon and added hangar capacity in Bend, Oregon to accommodate the region's expanding business aviation traffic.
