“We are happy to appoint Jetex as the sole and exclusive FBO operator in Abidjan,” said Mr.Gilles Darriau, C.E.O. of AERIA. “Jetex has high standards for FBOs, which is exactly what we were looking for.”
“We chose Abidjan because it is an economic powerhouse for West Africa.

We’re looking forward to welcoming passengers at our new FBO very soon.”
