ExecuJet, part of the Luxaviation Group, has announced that its FBO in St Maarten, which along with the rest of the island was extensively affected by Hurricane Irma, is back to operational capability following the handling of a transient business jet.

The Falcon 8X aircraft took off from ExecuJet’s St Maarten facility in the Caribbean on 10 October 2017, signalling the start of a return to normal operations ahead of the holiday season in December. Fuel is available without restriction at the FBO, and the current limitation to daylight-only flights is expected to be lifted following the restoration of navigation aids and runway lights, which is scheduled for completion by the end of October 2017.
