The Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, is hosting the 71st annual 2018 NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition [NBAA-BACE] this October. This conference and exhibition is amongst the biggest shows in the United States.

NBAA-BACE, Understanding Through Unity

This event brings together different professionals from the aviation industry – from the jet owners to the service providers, and more.

It is at this annual event that these professionals can talk about the issues the business aviation industry is facing. It is here where solutions are suggested, discussed, and pushed to be implemented. This annual event is the place to speak up and voice concerns as key government policymakers and Federal Aviation Administration [FAA] associates will be there listening to the growing pain the business aviation industry is going through. These people will be listening and discussing possible solutions that will help the industry grow and flourish.

NBAA-BACE, Jetex Attending

As usual, this event will attract the biggest names from the executive aviation industry, and of course, Jetex will be there.

This year has been filled with big news for the Jetex team. We kicked off the year by announcing our collaboration with Luxivair to launch the first branded terminal in the United States at the San Bernardino Airport in California. This news was followed with Jetex adding new locations in RomeDublinAbidjan, and Orly.

We’ve collaborated and expanded, but we’ve also been appointed as HondaJet Middle East and partnered with Wright Electric. The news so far has been incredible, and we have more to share at NBAA-BACE.

Make sure to head to our booth and connect with us throughout the event to find out more about the Jetex ventures.
