In April, FBO Experience together with its partners from Bizavnews went to the Seychelles to see what the Royal Jet - Air Seychelles FBO has to offer!
Several years ago, the largest Business Jet Operator from the UAE, Royal Jet, jointly with Air Seychelles opened its first FBO on the island. Air Seychelles in the joint project took over the commercial and operational management of the new FBO, called Air Seychelles VIP, which is focused solely on servicing business aviation. The clients are offered ground handling, Immigration and Customs procedures Fast Track , obtaining permits for flights, fuel supply, parking (up to 12 days), VIP meetings room and Meet & Greet service at departure, or to their helicopter transfer.
The new VIP-lounge is equipped with comfortable lounges, which simultaneously accommodate 55 guests. Also passengers can take advantage of free Wi-Fi, cable TV and VIP-catering. A separate lounge takes up VVIP-persons, including heads of state.
There are 10 parking places for business jets at the airport. Even BBJ777-300ER can be placed there. The airport serves up to 20 business aviation flights daily. In winter, this figure is significantly increased. However, they rarely delay. There are no problems with slots and parking and the cost of handling does not exceed the rates in European airports.
Here below is a collection of planes and FBO photos we took while there:
