Closed!! So all the staff have gone and the facility is just empty, surely a company will be interested in taking over?.

So the same 2 idiots who nearly destroyed Metrojet in HKG, dine a fine job with Rizon Jet. I wonder where they will turn up next.

Good luck to those staff involved, and hope they can all find futures soon. The independent FBO models cannot survive against the international corporations that drive business to themselves.

Pretty inevitable they would take it over, such a nice FBO for the portfolio.

Where next?

Wonder when Bombardier decided to bail out of their Amsterdam MRO and move to Biggin Hill they thought in their wildest dreams it wouldn't be into an EU country?
