CYHU H-18 Services, FBO service provider at Saint-Hubert Airport/CYHU, Montreal, has opened its new facility and renamed itself HUB FBO. In March 2018, the company agreed to sell Hangar 18, which it occupied since 2012, to a commercial charter operator, paving the way for it to begin work on what was initially to be called Aéroparc H-19, at the airport.
The company recently moved into the $8.3M, 45,000-sq-ft facility but the planned grand opening festivities have been postponed indefinitely due to the Covid pandemic. Located near the former FBO, off the airport’s 7,800-foot-long Runway 24R, the new Avjet-branded complex sits on a 4.5-acre site and includes an approximately 25,000-sq-ft heated hangar that can accommodate aircraft up to the Bombardier Global 7500.
The 20,000-sq-ft, two-story terminal features a passenger lounge, concierge, pilot's lounge, two snooze rooms, shower facilities, a pair of conference rooms, crew cars, car rental, and customs upon request, as well as office space. The facility handles a wide variety of clients, including sports teams.
"We are thrilled to have opened the doors of our new FBO and are proud to provide the same high-quality standards we have been giving since day one,” said general manager Sylvie Santini. “This modern facility will surely exceed your expectations.”
