Australian Aviation - ExecuJet secures private terminal at Auckland airport

01 February 2022

International private jet charter company ExecuJet has expanded its presence in the Asia-Pacific, with a new private jet terminal based at Auckland International Airport.

The company has acquired the terminal from its former local FBO partner Air Center One and will mark ExecuJet’s first owned and operated fixed-based operator (FBO) facility in New Zealand.

Meanwhile, ExecuJet parent organisation Luxaviation Group is now operating four FBOs throughout the Asia-Pacific region, including in Sydney, Melbourne and New Delhi.

The soon-to-be rebranded VIP lounge of Air Center One offers passengers expansive views to the FBO ramp area and offers all the amenities one would expect from a private business lounge, including private meeting rooms.

Passengers can also travel directly to or from overseas, with customs and immigration processing facilities also available in the centre.

Patrick Hansen, CEO of Luxaviation Group, said, “The Asia-Pacific region is one of the most dynamic regions in the world. We are excited to be expanding our global FBO network through this acquisition and offering our services at another major destination in the region.”

Hansen said Air Center One was previously a “long time preferred handling agent” in Auckland, and that the new acquisition will complement a similar third-party agreement held with Capital Jet Services to provide FBO facilities in Wellington.
