The new project comprises remodeling all of its LMM facilities to integrate the latest available technology for pilots as well as luxury amenities for passengers, pilots and crew.
Management Group Investors announced Tuesday it will invest $2 million to build a new 10,000 square-foot “Fixed-Based Operator” hangar at its Airport Aviation Services facilities in the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in Carolina.
The main aviation services and food and beverage conglomerate in Puerto Rico will prepare the new facility to receive executive jets, MGI President José Algarín-Pabón said.
The hangar, strategically located in front of the airport’s terminals B, C and D, will house immigration and customs enforcement services, which will facilitate the international entry and exit of executive and private flights to the island, the executive said.
Until now, those flights have to make arrangements in the main airport building, alongside passengers and flight crews on commercial airlines.
Airport Aviation Services has served as the island’s principal FBO for more than 50 years. The new project comprises remodeling all of its LMM facilities to integrate the latest available technology for pilots as well as luxury amenities for passengers, pilots and crew.
The new hangar and full remodeling of the facilities will be completed in September 2017, Algarín-Pabón said.
