ExecuJet Expands its Services in Mexico

ZURICH -- ExecuJet announces the expansion of its Mexico-based services, offering a full portfolio for aircraft management and charter services in Latin America and the Caribbean.

ExecuJet has a full portfolio of Charter Aircraft available in the region. As of Jan. 1, ExecuJet Mexico has secured two new aircraft under an exclusive Charter Management agreement and will advise potential clients that the Global Express and Falcon 900B are available for short- and long-term assignments. These aircraft join three PC12s that ExecuJet Mexico already has available for charter in the region. Furthermore, four PC12 aircraft have joined the fleet to complement a 7X, CL300 and a DA2000 under management by ExecuJet. The expansion means that ExecuJet will have Management Operations at two Mexican Airports (Del Norte and Mariano Escobedo International - Monterrey).

"ExecuJet has been established in Monterrey, Mexico for a number of years looking after one principle client, but now we feel the time is right to expand our profile and business in this region," says Gerrit Basson, Managing Director of ExecuJet Aviation Group.

The Mexican base will continue under the management of Managing Director Adrian Zambrano, who has been in charge of the business in Mexico since 2002. Under Zambrano’s supervision, ExecuJet Mexico is expanding to become one of the largest business aviation operations in Mexico.

"Despite the global economic downturn, Mexico still presents some great opportunities to the World of General Aviation," says Zambrano. "ExecuJet´s reputation for quality, professionalism and value mean we are well placed to move the business to a new level. Presently, we are focusing on further expansion for our Aircraft Management and Charter Services."

Operations Director for Mexico is newly appointed Mark Hardman, who brings 22 years of aviation experience, having previously been employed by Bombardier Skyjet International in London. Guillermo Prieto has been appointed Sales Director for Mexico and Central America. Guillermo has a broad background in aviation and has acted as a sales agent in Mexico, representing various manufacturers for more than 20 years.
