Global Trek Aviation set to expand Belfast FBO facility
January 11, 2017
Global Trek Aviation is on course with plans to expand its FBO facility in Belfast after securing the regulatory approval for the project. “The facility will double in size, giving more space for client amenities as well as having room to expand the company’s operational control centre,” according to a 10 January 2017 Corporate Jet Investor news article by Terry Spruce.
The approval for the expansion was granted by the Belfast International Airport management and other government authorities that regulate Ireland’s private aviation industry. The scheduled expansion will significantly increase Global Trek’s capacity to support the scope of its current operations and also absorb new business opportunities. This is in line with the company’s efforts to meet the ever-growing demand for its FBO services.
Spruce quotes Global Trek’s Managing Director, David McColm, as saying: “Our facility has been getting busier by the month, and we have taken the decision to plan for future growth at an early stage. Doubling the floor space will allow us to provide even greater comfort for our clients, put in additional amenities and expand our operations control centre to keep up with customer demand.”
Global Trek’s expansion project is well within the overall growth framework of the Belfast International Airport. The airport’s management expressed approval for the project while noting its significance in meeting the future capacity needs of FBO facilities. Spruce quotes Belfast International Airport’s Director of Commercial Development, Brian Carlin, as saying: “Global Trek has shown the depth of their industry experience and commitment by hitting the ground running, delivering a first-class experience to their clients and investing in infrastructure, GSE and personnel training from the very start.”
Since its founding, Global Trek has remained steadfastly committed to its principles of efficiency, safety and quality customer service. It is for this reason that the company has successfully retained its existing customers while attracting new ones.
