Luxivair looks good to MENA clients

Posted 5 September 2018 · Add Comment

Luxivair SBD, southern California’s premier fixed-based operator (FBO) located at San Bernardino International Airport, is quickly becoming the terminal of choice for private jet passengers from the MENA region.

“Passengers arriving through Luxivair avoid the congested airspace at other overcrowded airports yet enjoy access to most southern California attractions within an hour’s drive,” explained the FBO’s business development manager Kimberly Benson, while attending the recent Aviation Africa Conference and Exhibition in Cairo.
Located just 96 kilometres from downtown Los Angeles, Luxivair’s FBO offers its clientele a broad range of world-class services, including on-site 24/7 US Customs clearance.
The FBO is celebrating five years of service and recently announced a 62% increase in customer activity in 2017 compared to the previous year.
“Our exquisite facility has a thriving business complex designed to support the complete needs of corporate, charter and general aviation pilots,” said Benson.
“Our cooperative agreement with Abu Dhabi Airports Company, announced in February, together with our strategic partnership with Dubai-based Jetex Flight Support, announced in March, underscore our deep commitment to MENA. We recognise that the MENA region plays an increasingly important role in private jet aviation and we are focused on serving as a trusted partner in support of its continued growth.”
Michael Burrows, executive director, San Bernardino International Airport, added: “Luxivair SBD is also a key supply chain partner for MENA-based air cargo companies shipping to southern California.
“The recent decision by UPS to begin daily flights into our airport highlights the fact that we are providing much-needed relief for air cargo companies of all sizes from the MENA region and beyond, who have been experiencing significant delays at other southern California airports. Our very competitive cost structure, together with the fact that aircraft of any size can land here, provides significant advantages to our clients.”
