Isle of Man jet centre repositions as regional sustainable aviation hub

news item image
Work has commenced in earnest at the only dedicated private jet terminal at Ronaldsway Airport, Isle of Man, as a private group embarks on plans to modernise and expand the FBO facility – originally built in 2015.
The enhanced Private Jet Centre will include a host of sustainable features, including the ability to calculate and offset carbon emissions (with a proprietary carbon calculator) and access to sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
Megacorp Aviation, which also owns business aircraft for charter, and with bases at Douglas, Isle of Man and London Biggin Hill Airport, is bringing in a dedicated aviation team to realise plans to create an aviation technology park there.
Aviation traffic in The Isle of Man is expected to increase exponentially in the next two years. The Island is regularly used by the film industry which relies upon on-demand aviation. The private terminal is ideally positioned in the south of the island at Ronaldsway, six miles from Douglas, providing rapid access to key destinations and events.
Harry Ackerman, CEO of Megacorp Aviation, said: “The Isle of Man has long been underserved for private aviation.
“We are confident that the investment we are making into the Private Jet Centre and other aviation facilities at the airport will stimulate further economic growth for the Island and attract more traffic, as well as supporting aircraft coming on to the highly popular Isle of Man Aircraft Registry.”
Captain Tony Corlett, chairman of the Private Jet Company, which originally built the FBO ten years ago said: “We are delighted to be working with the Island’s general aviation community, alongside Megacorp, to ensure a best-in-class service is always rendered to our customers.”
Hannah Lo Bao, commercial manager of Ronaldsway Airport, added: “We are thrilled by the potential advancements within the private aviation sector at Ronaldsway Airport and are eagerly anticipating its growth.”
