With construction work on Accra-Kotoka International's new Terminal 3 flagship project moving into top gear some operators at the airport have had to change location to facilitate this major development.

The airport expansion supports the country's ambition to upgrade its vital infrastructure by modernising and transforming the airport into a gateway for West Africa and as a regional aviation hub. It is also expected to contribute to the country's economy by facilitating market connectivity and by reducing the cost of doing business.

One of the effected companies is Mainstream Aviation. They are now well into the process of relocating to a purpose built facility which will house their Dispatch, Permit & OCC offices as well as aircraft charter and management teams.

CEO Captain Ladi Odulaja comments, “Accra is ideally situated in West Africa to become the region's airline hub. The airport can also expect to see a continued growth in business aviation traffic over the next 5 to 10 years as the county’s’ economy grows and it is for this that we at Mainstream Aviation are investing and concentrating our efforts.

"With this in mind we have been looking at upgrading our staff training to an internationally recognised certificated level, improving our customer support services & our competitiveness.

Captain Ladi Odulaja

"I invited business aviation ground support specialist, Global FBO Consult, to review all aspects of our operation and as a result I believe Mainstream Aviation is now a more efficient and customer centric operation ready to deliver our clients a world class service”

Jul 24, 2017
Signature Flight Support (Signature) issued a statement at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, WI whereby Signature will provide preferred pricing on fuel and services at all FBO locations to the Commemorative Air Force (CAF), the world’s largest flying museum comprised of over 165 historic warbirds.

Volunteer pilots and aircrews can relax and refresh during tech stops as they travel the country performing and exhibiting at airshows. Some of the pricing and services include a nationwide avgas fuel program, ground support and assistance with AOG and MRO services as needed via its Signature TECHNICAir division.

Pilots and crews will be able to participate in Signature TailWins, Signature’s pilot rewards program.  Under the BLUESky program all Signature TailWins members earn 10 times points for avgas fuel purchases.  Points can then be redeemed for cash equivalent gift cards or virtual Visa cards.

“We are pleased to offer this program to the Commemorative Air Force to help them further their mission of the preservation of historical aviation equipment and the military legacies of the brave individuals who flew these aircraft. In addition, we continue to enthusiastically support all avgas pilots and the general aviation sector. Signature is the largest provider of avgas in the United States, the availability of fuel and access to trained ground support for piston-powered aircraft.  Signature offers its BLUESky program to all avgas pilots whereby pilots earn 10 points per gallon of avgas purchased.  Also Signature’s Weekend TakeOff program provides for a fifty cent discount on posted retail avgas prices”, noted Maria A. Sastre, President and Chief Operating Officer for Signature Flight Support.

“Operating the World’s largest flying museum, especially touring cross-country most of the year is expensive, but vital to perform our mission. The CAF is grateful for the generous support that Signature is providing our organization and looks forward to visiting many of their FBOs while on tour,” said David Oliver, CAF Vice President of Operations.

Jetex Flight Support marks another milestone in its growth history, with the announcement of a successful tender to provide FBO services at Ciampino–G. B. Pastine International Airport (CIA/LIRA) in Rome, Italy. Set to open in the second half of 2017, the Ciampino FBO will herald Jetex’s entry to the Italian market and further expand the company’s European network, which encompasses locations including but not limited to France, Ireland, Spain and Ukraine.

"Opening an FBO in Rome represents an important strategic step in expanding our presence in Europe," said Jetex CEO & President Adel Mardini. "The city’s central geographical location, together with its importance as the country’s political and financial capital, makes it the ideal location to establish our first FBO in Italy."

As Rome’s main hub for general aviation (GA), Ciampino Airport consistently ranks on the list of top 10 busiest GA airports in Europe. Ciampino saw an average daily departure rate of 21.1 GA flights in 2016, reflecting its position at the heart of Italian business aviation.

"With a rich heritage of over 100 years of operation and close proximity to Rome’s city center, Ciampino remains an important and strategic asset to the Italian airport system," said Mardini. "Providing FBO services at Ciampino allows Jetex to bring our world-class flight and ground handling services to a wider market."

The African Business Aviation Association, AfBAA, today marks its fifth anniversary having launched on the 15th May at EBACE 2012. To celebrate the successful establishment of the dynamic organisation AfBAA will be launching AfBAC EXPO, Africa’s first dedicated Business Aviation Conference, Exhibition and Static Display, at the African Pavilion – Booth V70 – during this year’s EBACE.


l - R Tareq Ragheb, Founding Chairman
& Rady Fahmy CEO

AfBAC EXPO will take place in Johannesburg, South Africa from 29 November until 1 December, 2017 and will be of interest to any international professional or business operating, or planning to operate in Africa.

The conference objective is to inspire and inform through a variety of mediums including authoritative presentations from industry leaders, dynamic panel discussions from experts in their field, video presentations from international companies, and a selection of workshops that will discuss current topics affecting business aviation development in Africa. Training sessions on safety and regulation will run in parallel, as will an afternoon session dedicated to the booming area of remotely piloted aerial systems, RPAS. Building on the success of the AfBAC 2016 conference, content will also be delivered by professionals from outside the aviation sector who will discuss alternative business concepts, and their potential application within the aviation arena.

Once again networking and participation will be encouraged with a programme of social events taking centre stage, whilst during the conference interactive polling and digital questioning will provide delegates with the opportunity to share their feedback in real time.

“We have achieved much in five years, but we know there is still much to do as our journey has only really just begun,” said Tarek Ragheb, Founding Chairman of AfBAA. “We recognise that aviation in Africa doesn’t work in global or commercial isolation, which is why we are launching AfBAC EXPO at EBACE. We want to bring together international professionals to share experience and knowledge in a dedicated environment. With Europe’s strong connections to the continent, we’re hoping to garner a lot of interest during EBACE,” he added.

AFBAC EXPO will also incorporate an exhibition area for companies wishing to showcase the latest innovations, products and services, as well as a static display which is expected to include around 15 aircraft from international OEMS and local operators. Site visits to FBOs and operators at Lanseria Airport will be part of the schedule. It is anticipated that the event will welcome visitors representing the full spectrum of the business aviation sector.

First Access Africa to take place at EBACE

Access Africa, a new international initiative from AfBAA, is also launching at EBACE. The forum has been created to facilitate better understanding of what is required to undertake business within the African business aviation sector. The plan is for the new event to be held during international aviation conferences around the globe. During the 90-minute session, attendees will be transported to Africa, through a trio of concise presentations from leading African business aviation experts, who will outline local issues, share anecdotal experiences, detail what works, and importantly what does not; as well as highlight the points to consider when taking the first steps into Africa

At EBACE these will be Segun Demuren from Nigeria’s EAN Aviation, Nuno Pereira from Angola’s Bestfly and Gavin Kiggen of ExecuJet South Africa. The informal nature of the forum is designed to stimulate frank discussion, open questioning and interaction that will address key concerns from the audience.

“One of AfBAA’s guiding principles is to raise awareness of the continent’s potential and that is what drives us to create these types of events. We are aware that many European companies are interested in developing African business but don’t necessarily have the information they need to hand. Access Africa is about providing tangible, practical information to support these professionals’ endeavours,” says Rady Fahmy, CEO of AfBAA. Access Africa is the second international event organized by AfBAA, the first being the annual African Pavilion at EBACE, and represents the sixth event in the growing portfolio of AfBAA meetings.

Access Africa will take place on Monday 22nd May in Conference Room L of PalExpo, Geneva. There are limited places available for the free event so please email info@afbaa.org for more information or to register your interest.

]]> http://globalfboconsult.me/Newsfeed.php?post=225 Sky Atlas: All-inclusive package for business aviation 5/10/2017 5:55:16 PM Press release  - Moscow, 3 May 2017

From 1 May, Sky Atlas introduces a brand-new price list for ground handling and passenger services in Russia, based on the all-inclusive fixed-price package principle.
 
In Russia, when business aircraft owners and operators receive their bills for ground handling, they are often confronted with a long list of operations that they didn’t order or budget for. It often comes an unpleasant surprise and leads to disputes.
 
Sky Atlas, the provider of ground handling and flight support in Russia, has introduced a brand-new price list to the Russian business aviation market.
 
From 1 May 2017, all clients who are arriving at or departing from Moscow Sheremetyevo International Airport can make the process easier by using the new Sky Atlas price list. The list is based on the package principle, where handling services are calculated and a fixed price is quoted. This allows the client to work out their expenses accurately before the flight.
 
As well as essential FBO services, the price list includes additional options, includingrefuelling, aircraft parking, hangar storage, VIP terminal passenger services and so on. Prices for these services are also fixed in the new price list. This allows clients to choose only the services they really need and to know the cost in advance.
 
Nicolas Winkel, Sky Atlas CEO, says: ‘We have launched a tool that is mutually beneficial for us and for our clients. For example, a super-middle jet, say, Challenger 605 – its handling will cost only 1600, that’s all. And if the plane is permanently based here in Sheremetyevo, the price will be even less. The price includes an optimal set of FBO services, everything that is essential to make a flight, but it’s no problem to book extras, like refuelling or cleaning a jet. So, the bill will include just two or three items, instead of dozens like it used to.
 
We’ve chosen Sheremetyevo as our starting point because we’ve got our head office and operations control centre here. But Moscow SVO is just one of the airports where we provide our services. Soon we are going to introduce similar price lists for St Petersburg Pulkovo and all other airports in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States [CIS] where we have representatives. Today, this is more than 140 airports.’
 
The price list is divided into three levels: Gold is the basic one; Frequent Flyer is dedicated to regular customers; and Premium is for clients who have long-term contracts for apron or hangar aircraft storage. For the first two months, all Gold clients will be granted with Frequent Flyer level discounts.
 
Sky Atlas provides a full range of business aviation services in Russia and the CIS and now, with the brand-new price list, its clients can add exact costs forecasting to the list.
 
Sky Atlas has also launched a promotion offer for new clients where they can discover the convenience of using Sky Atlas services and make a decision for regular cooperation.
 
Download the new Sky Atlas price list here: https://www.skyatlas.biz/upload/%D0%A0ackage_price_SVO_Moscow.pdf
 
Sky Atlas was established in October 2015 in Moscow. Our main mission is to provide all business aviation related services – from flight support to turn key solutions – in charter flights arrangements and aircraft acquisition.
Sky Atlas is the preferred provider of FBO-related services at Sheremetyevo and Pulkovo International airports. Today, Sky Atlas possesses a network of representatives at 140 airports in Russia and CIS
