Skyservice Business Aviation has broken ground on a 71,000 square-foot FBO and hangar complex for Seattle travellers at King County International Airport Boeing Field (BFI).
The new private jet center includes generously sized lounge and relaxation areas, a two-storey open reception area and a 1,600 square-foot second-floor terrace overlooking Mount Rainier. The FBO will offer guests complimentary access to executive conference rooms and break-out areas.
The 50,000 square-foot hangar will accommodate newer aircraft such as the Gulfstream 700 and 800, the Global 7500 and 8000, and the Dassault Falcon 10X.
"Seattle is a very important location for Skyservice as we expand our FBO, MRO and industry-leading aircraft management company in the Pacific Northwest," notes Benjamin Murray, Skyservice president and CEO. "We are committed to working with the airport to upgrade and expand its infrastructure, focus on sustainable operations and provide greater choice in the marketplace."
Part of the construction development also includes plans to increase the ramp footprint. Skyservice Seattle will operate from a temporary facility while the new private jet centre is being built. On its same leasehold, the company will continue to provide comprehensive FBO services, including ground handling, aircraft refuelling, lounge amenities, flight crew lounges and sleep rooms, and ground transportation.
