Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group announced today the creation of a new all-encompassing Aviation Services unit which brings together the management of Cambridge Airport, Business Aviation and the newly-launched ‘one call, one team’ JETability business. Aviation Services will be headed by Steve Jones as managing director who sees his remit broadened to include Cambridge Airport, effective immediately.
Steve Jones has many years’ experience steering the growth of regional airports – in the UK with Oxford Airport where he was Managing Director for 10 years and prior to joining Marshall’s in May 2012 to run the company’s MRO and charter companies, he served as General Manager of Al Bateen Executive Airport, the first and only dedicated business aviation airport in the Middle East.
In December 2012 Steve spearheaded the launch of JETability, a streamlined service portfolio designed to give customers direct access to a range of services - Aircraft Management, Maintenance, MRO, Chartering, Sales, Concierge and Consultancy through a bespoke call centre. JETability also saw the 100-year old Marshall Group of Companies expand into the pre-owned aircraft sales sector for the first time.
