Jet Aviation has achieved IS-BAH Stage II Registration for its FBO in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The San Juan FBO is a full-service handling operation at one of the most convenient U.S. points of entry for international flights. Jet Aviation acquired full ownership of the FBO at Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport in February 2019.
As the first FBO in Puerto Rico to qualify for IS-BAH Stage I registration in September 2018, Jet Aviation San Juan continues to demonstrate its industry leadership and commitment to the highest safety standards.
“Between Hurricanes, the ownership change, and all the new systems that came with it, our team here in San Juan has had much to contend with the past few years and yet continues to raise the bar with new offerings and premium service delivery,” said Hector Vasquez, senior manager FBO. “The rigorous IS-BAH Stage II audit was a first for most of the team and I couldn’t be prouder of them.”
After Hurricane Maria destroyed the San Juan hangar in 2017, Jet Aviation built a new 20,000 ft² hangar that officially opened in June 2020. The hangar can accommodate up to three small-to-medium-sized aircraft and three large aircraft, up to the size of the Gulfstream G650 or the Global Express.
The International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) establishes criteria for best handling systems, processes, and practices to ensure FBOs meet rigorous safety and security standards. With this recent approval, Jet Aviation has a total of 29 IS-BAH registered FBOs around the world, including ten in the U.S.A., 12 in EMEA, and seven in APAC.
