Universal Aviation Spain part of a consortium selected to renovate & manage GATs in MAD & BCN
Renovations of the terminals are underway at both airports with LEBL slated for completion by June 2019. The refurbishment at LEMD is also in progress. Refurbishment of some areas of the terminal at LEMD will be intentionally paused to ensure all GAT facilities are available and construction does not interfere with the experience of operators and passengers attending the 2019 Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) Champions League Final, June 1st in Madrid.
Upon completion, the GATs at both airports will feature all new lounges and meeting rooms for crew and passengers. In addition to shared common lounges at each terminal, each of the three companies will also have all new private lounges and facilities for their customers.
“The renovation of the GATs in Madrid and Barcelona will greatly enhance the experience of business operators to these airports,” said Gonzalo Barona Jr., General Manager, Universal Aviation Spain, who will also serve as manager of Spanish FBO at both facilities. “The refurbishment will make the GATs feel like a brand-new facility. In addition to the shared facilities, Universal Aviation Spain is also getting and remodeling its own private facilities for our customers. We will have huge new offices and our own beautiful crew and VIP lounges, which clients will be able to use free of charge versus paying a fee to the airport. We’re really excited about being able to elevate our customers’ experience at both these airports.”
