Global aviation services provider Jetex has signed a joint venture agreement with Berlin-Neuhardenberg Airport (EDON) to develop an FBO on the field.January 14, 2022, 11:13 AMGlobal aviation services provider Jetex has signed a joint venture agreement with Berlin-Neuhardenberg Airport (EDON) to develop an FBO on the field, which is approximately a one-hour drive east of Berlin. While no timeline was given for the project, the facility will include a 16,000-sq-ft (1,500-sq-m) private jet terminal and conference center, along with additional parking stands to accommodate more than 20 private aircraft. MRO service will also be provided. “Jetex’s involvement is an equally important step in the development of our airport,” said Peter Sølbeck, principal shareholder and managing director of Airport Development A/S, which has owned and operated the airport for 15 years. “Since 2007, we as a Danish company have been striving for the civil reuse of this former GDR government airport.” Open 24/7, EDON, a former military airfield, is not slot controlled and has a 7,874-foot-long, 164-foot-wide runway that can handle aircraft up to the size of an Airbus A350. “A major factor in our success is the ability to grow our FBO network in key international gateways with significant private aviation demand,” explained Jetex founder and CEO Adel Mardini. “As the capital of Germany and a major commercial and cultural center, Berlin is a destination we have longed to get a presence in.” In 2012, Airport Development built one of the largest solar-power farms in Europe on the airport property. Capable of generating more than 175 megawatts of energy, this farm will help the new facility achieve its zero-carbon emissions ambitions. “Today, more than ever before, we focus on sustainability and minimizing our carbon footprint,” said Mardini. “Jetex has been offering a number of environmental solutions and developing the world’s first pure green FBO, which will also include the latest innovations in ecodesign.” Business Aviation
