Award winning FBO specialists Global Trek Aviation, already established at Belfast International (EGAA), are opening a second Executive Jet Centre, at Cardiff International Airport (EGFF), the Capital Airport for Wales.
Chief Operating Officer Gordon Bingham commented, “We are delighted to be opening this all-new facility at Cardiff International Airport as it offers tremendous potential with its ideal strategic location. We are investing in building a bespoke, state-of-the-art facility on the south side of the airport with dedicated VIP lounge, private offices, crew briefing centre, flight ops facilities and a fully integrated security screening suite.
"Provisional target date for opening the new full service FBO is April 2019, subject to completion and fitting-out on time. Experienced team members will allow the operation to start providing world class services from day one, as we invest in training a local team to NATA Safety 1st certification standard as well as Global Trek Aviation’s own Standards of Excellence.”
