Jet Aviation has been operating the San Juan FBO under a management agreement with the previous owner, Pazos, since March 2017, when the FBO was rebranded as Jet Aviation.

Paddock said a new, larger hangar will open in the first quarter of 2019 to replace the one destroyed by Hurricane Maria in 2017.

The hangar – 20,000 square feet of hangar space and 2,500 square feet of office space – will offer customers parking facilities, refueling, third party aircraft maintenance, meeting space, an executive passenger lounge, flight-planning workstations and a pilots' suite.

The San Juan FBO has a full-service, onsite U.S. Customs and Border Protection terminal to facilitate convenient customs, immigration and agriculture processing of international flights.
