ExecuJet Middle East is extending the companys strategic partnership with Bilen Air Service in Istanbul to include aircraft handling at Sabiha Gokchen Airport, thus providing 24/7 support capability to the city following the recent introduction of general aviation (GA) flight restrictions at Istanbul Atatrk Airport.

The two companies joined forces in 2011 offering fixed-based operations (FBO) services at Istanbul Atatrk Airport, which has since enjoyed high levels of FBO traffic. GA movements at the airport have recently been made subject to restricted operating hours by Turkish authorities, who wish to reserve daytime capacity for commercial traffic.

Tolga Asan, Assistant General Manager, Bilen Air Service, said, Istanbul Atatrk Airport currently has NOTAM restrictions in place, limiting foreign general aviation movements to the hours of 21:00 and 02:30 zulu. ExecuJet and Bilen Air Service are therefore extending our handling services to Sabiha Gokchen Airport to ensure our customers continue to be fully supported in the city.

Customers flying into Sabiha Gokchen Airport will be handled by fully trained Bilen Air FBO Service staff and have the use of facilities in the GA terminal.
