LONDON – North American operator Skyservice Business Aviation is expanding its full-service business aviation operations to Vancouver International Airport (“YVR”), Canada. The new private jet center will further expand the company’s operations network in Canada and the US Pacific Northwest.
Skyservice Vancouver will offer fixed-based operations (FBO), maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), charter, aircraft management, and aircraft sales and acquisition services.
This property is the eleventh full-service private jet center for Skyservice. The company has two additional locations specifically designated for avionics, aircraft upgrades and heavy maintenance in Muskoka, Ontario, and the newly acquired 80,000 square-foot hangar at Montreal-Trudeau International Airport.
The company has agreed to a long-term lease with World Fuel Services at Canada’s second-busiest airport with plans to modernize the existing property and further invest in the buildout of the location’s business aviation service capacity.
Skyservice has further expansion plans afoot for two US operating bases, as it extends its aviation service and support network across North America.
In February, the company will open in Napa, California and begin work on a new private jet hangar in Seattle to replace its Boeing Field site.
This past year, Skyservice also finished construction of a new FBO facility in Redmond, Oregon, and added hangar capacity in Bend, Oregon, to accommodate the region’s expanding business aviation traffic.
“We are thrilled to add Vancouver to our growing network of award-winning business aviation jet centers in Canada and the U.S. Pacific Northwest,” commented Benjamin Murray, President and CEO, Skyservice.
“Increasingly, business aviation clients are looking for providers who deliver full aircraft support, from aircraft consultation and management to maintenance and full ground and fuel support with impeccable fixed-base operation facilities.”
“We are proud to now offer this level of service in Vancouver,” he concluded.
