Skyservice Business Aviation has announced the expansion of its full-service operations at Vancouver International Airport (YVR) in Canada.
Under the agreement, Skyservice Vancouver will offer its fixed-based operations (FBO), maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) at YVR, which is said to be the second-busiest airport in the country.
It will also provide charter, aircraft management, and aircraft sales and acquisition services at the airport.
Skyservice president and CEO Benjamin Murray said: “We are thrilled to add Vancouver to our growing network of award-winning business aviation jet centres in Canada and the US Pacific Northwest.
“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.”
YVR is the 11th full-service private jet centre for Skyservice.
In Canada, it offers its services at Muskoka, Ontario, and at the newly acquired 80,000ft² hangar at Montreal-Trudeau International Airport.
The two centres are specifically designated for avionics, aircraft upgrades, and heavy maintenance.
Skyservice has also reached a long-term lease with World Fuel Services at YVR, with the intention of upgrading the existing property and making additional investments in the buildout of the location’s business aviation service capacity.
This month, the company will also launch in Napa, California.
It also looks to start work this month on a new private jet hangar in Seattle that will replace its Boeing Field site.
