Jet Aviation San Juan resumes full FBO operations following hurricanes

Jet Aviation San Juan has returned to full FBO operations at Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport in Puerto Rico following the recent devastating hurricanes that have affected the area. The FBO is coordinating humanitarian flights bringing relief supplies to hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico and the rest of the Caribbean region.

John Langevin, vice president for Jet Aviation FBO operations in North America, said, “Our FBO has power and water and can be reached by normal access roads. We’re providing full service including fueling, ground handling, and aircraft service and parking on our ramp. We are operating with email and cell phone service and are taking reservations and service requests from customers.

“Thanks to our strong and dedicated FBO team, we were able to resume operations as the only functioning FBO at the airport last Friday, just 24 hours after Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico. Our team is putting all of its expertise and effort behind this monumental humanitarian relief effort.”

Langevin says the FBO is coordinating nearly all the humanitarian relief flights arriving at the airport to assist the residents of Puerto Rico and other Caribbean islands.

The FBO is operating seven days a week from 5am to midnight, and flights after midnight will be coordinated on an individual request basis.

Customers are asked to contact the FBO directly by email at fboservices@pazosfbopr.com. The FBO also can be reached by cell phone, although service can be intermittent at present, at 787.399.3260 or 787.923.8259.
