Universal Aviation Opens a Second FBO in Australia at Perth Airport (YPPH)

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Aug 8, 2011) - Universal Aviation in Australia, headquartered at Sydney Airport (YSSY), has opened its second location in Australia at Perth Airport (YPPH) and is now the only ground handler capable of providing full ground support services in-house at Perth. Previously, Universal Aviation Australia, which is headquartered in Sydney, provided supervisory services only at Perth.

"Although we have been providing full aircraft ground handling services in Sydney and coordination throughout the rest of the country for many years, we are excited to now be able to offer full-service capabilities at a second destination in Australia at Perth," said Adolfo Aragon, Senior Vice President, Universal Aviation. "Our 20,200 square-foot facility has the latest in modern amenities and security. The facility offers operators total privacy, with easy landside access, including car parking, privacy screening and complete electronic security."

The new Universal Aviation Perth location, which is open 24/7 365, features a full service FBO with a hangar attached large enough to accommodate a Boeing 737 or an Airbus A320. Aircraft parking is usually available on the ramp and in the hangar or within close proximity. Other amenities include:

  • Three different lounge areas for passengers, including a fully-equipped conference room
  • Separate VIP crew lounge
  • Business center
  • Shower facilities
  • Complimentary wireless Internet access in all passenger and crew areas

"As the second busiest business aviation airport in Australia, Perth was an ideal location to expand our network and further strengthen our presence in Australia," said Roger Cox, Managing Director, Universal Aviation Australia. "We now have a physical presence on both the eastern and western coasts of Australia, allowing us to better serve our clients traveling in the region."
