ACI Jet Completes Remodel of Santa Ana, California Executive Terminal & FBO

New Executive Terminal features full suite of services, including large and small aircraft fueling, on-demand maintenance, and passenger conveniences while traveling to or from the greater Los Angeles/Orange County area.

Santa Ana, CA, October 9, 2017 – ACI Jet, a world-class FBO providing corporate aircraft management, charter, maintenance, and ground handling services, announced today the completion of its three-month remodeling project at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, California. The project served to upgrade a property previously operated by Signature Flight Support prior to their departure in April of 2017.

John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana is one of the primary airports with direct access to some of the most affluent neighborhoods and vibrant businesses on the West Coast. The 500-acre airport serves more than 10 million passengers annually, and has seen year-over-year increases in passenger traffic for the last five consecutive years.

"ACI Jet identified a real, tangible opportunity for growth in our fuel sales and FBO services division," stated Andrew Robillard, ACI's Vice President of FBOs. "With general aviation traffic on the rise, and business aviation specifically building strong roots in the region, we decided to bring our customer-focused approach to business and private aviation to travelers in a whole new market. The response has been well-received by the community as a whole, and we're excited to see how our new Executive Terminal benefits both the community and our clients even further."

William Borgsmiller, ACI Jet's Chief Executive Officer, adds; "We've brought on nearly 60 additional expertly-trained professionals in customer service, line service, administration, and maintenance to serve clients at the new facility. Our goal through this FBO acquisition and the subsequent remodeling project is to provide a second-to-none experience for travelers, flight crews, and aircraft owners, both living in and traveling to the region."

Passenger Luxuries

The newly redesigned Santa Ana Executive Terminal was designed with passenger comfort, productivity, and efficiency at the forefront. On-site concierge services include industry standards like town car reservations and other transportation arrangements, but are expanded for clients and flight crews using ACI's facility. A client who desires tickets to a local event or reservations to an exclusive restaurant, to name just a couple examples, need only ask the on-site Hospitality and Experience agent and they will be provided booking services free of charge. Visitors are protected by a completely redesigned passenger and property security environment to ensure their privacy and safety. For current charter and management customers of ACI that are utilizing the facility, complementary vehicle detailing while they're away on a flight is complementary.

Aircraft Servicing

ACI Jet's newest location can service aircraft both large and small, from a Cessna 152 through Boeing Business Jet. Beyond competitive fuel pricing, the benefits for aircraft owners and fleet operators include modern handling and servicing equipment 24/7 access to FBO and maintenance services, and a passenger experience that is sure to please their most discerning clients.

Aircraft Maintenance

Complementing ACI Jet's Part 145 MRO (maintenance, repair, and overhaul) services, headquartered in a 35,000-sq-ft hangar adjacent to ACI's corporate headquarters in San Luis Obispo, the new Santa Ana location features nose-to-tail scheduled maintenance, major inspection, and AOG services to any tenant or visitor on the airfield. The same authorizations are in place, meaning an aircraft operator can trust that they are getting FAA-regulated support and service.
