Jet-Xpress is approaching its fifth year of operation in Africa.
This year will be a period of change, since after four successful years on the Ivory Coast, Jet-Xpress’s owners have decided that they cannot continue to invest in an unstable country. With that in mind, the operation has relocated to Liberia.
Liberia has welcomed the operation and it would appear that the timing is perfect, since the country is experiencing something of a boom, with investors arriving who have been doubtless encouraged by the discovery of oil.
Jet-Xpress is now starting the construction of the first independent and privately-owned General Aviation Terminal in Africa, which will feature an incorporated FBO.
Upon completion, the operation will be able to not only handle business aircraft of any size but also offer its clients a one-stop-shop facility with customs, immigration, scanners, VIP and VVIP lounges, pilot rest rooms, a gourmet kitchen, high speed Internet and conference rooms.
Phase two of the construction of the facility will feature a FAA and JarOps approved maintenance facility. For the moment, Jet-Xpress is operating a small FBO with a VIP lounge capable of handling any business jets. The owners add that they are still operating heavy aircraft and can offer charter services and that they have extended their services to include fuel brokerage, aircraft management services, membership programmes and other services besides.
