FBO traffic up 300% in South Africa

ExecuJet South Africa is set to do record business throughout June and July thanks to the World Cup. Its FBO facility at Lanseria handled 197 jet movements in the first week of the tournament and expects 160 different aircraft to arrive in the next two weeks. Additional parking space has been arranged with a nearby international airport and personnel have been working 12-hour shifts to cope with demand. Meanwhile ExecuJet’s Cape Town facility will handle approximately 120 aircraft over the period, which is a 300% increase. “The majority of aircraft arrivals are inbound from the USA and Europe, but South America and African countries are commonly filing for last minute requests and additional request for already confirmed arrivals is a daily occurrence, especially before each game,” said ExecuJet Aviation Group FBO Director Mark Abbott. “There is a real buzz at the FBOs here. It’s very exciting and everyone is working really hard.”
