ST. GEORGE'S, GRENADA, March 26, 2014 - GIS:
The Grenada Airports Authority is proud to announce the opening of the first Fixed Base Operator/Jet Center facility at Maurice Bishop International Airport. The facility, which caters for business general aviation services and airline first class/premium passengers, commenced operation on February 14th, 2014.

The new premium facility is owned and operated by IAM Caribbean Inc. a leading business aviation handling and fuel services operator in the Caribbean for over 25 years. IAM operates in 24 airports across the region - including its flagship full service FBO facilities in Barbados, Montego Bay, Jamaica and now Grenada.

IAM Group Managing Director, Mr. Paul Worrell, notes that " Grenada sits on the southern end of the spectacular Grenadine Islands / Tobago Cays and has a rich yachting culture. Increasing numbers of luxury super yachts make use of the excellent marinas on the island - such as Camper Nicholson's world class facility at Port Louis. Our new FBO will provide the passengers joining these premium yachts and those visiting the island's exclusive five (5) star resorts and properties with an equally elegant experience at the airport.”

Minister for Tourism, Civil Aviation and Culture, Hon. Alexandra Otway-Noel welcomed the Fixed Based operation at Maurice Bishop International Airport and sees it as part of the Grenada Government’s plan to have a world class tourism destination. Minister Otway-Noel also commented “we continue to find new ways to develop MBIA to exceed the expectation of our visitors.” The Minister commended all parties involved in making the FBO a reality.

This new business venture signals the Airports Authority’s commitment to develop and improve the quality of customer service offered at MBIA through public/private partnership initiatives. This facility will enhance and contribute greatly to the tourism product offered at our destination.

The GAA welcomes IAM Jet Center Grenada to our airport community and wish them all success in their operations.
