New Zealand FBO

New Zealand’s most experienced FBO network – we understand the needs and requirements of the elite traveller and corporate jet aircraft operator.

VHF: 131.7 mHz

Air Center One, is based in Auckland, and was established in 1984 by its founder Robin Leach – and was the first FBO and Corporate Jet ground handler to be set up here in New Zealand.

In January 2022, ExecuJet (part of the Luxaviation Group) acquired Air Center One into its family of FBOs operating around the world.

Today, as New Zealand’s most experienced FBO network we understand the needs and requirements of the elite traveller and corporate jet aircraft operator – this includes a superior level of security and customer anonymity.

Our customers benefit from our experience and critical operational information and this has earned us an enviable reputation for our ability to provide additional services of value to the corporate jet operator and passengers.

As the pioneer of the FBO Corporate Jet Handling business in New Zealand, Air Center One has built up a comprehensive corporate aircraft ground handling infrastructure throughout New Zealand and the South Pacific and today we remain the industry leader.

Our Experience

Since 1973, Air Center One Flight Operations has safely completed many international aircraft ferry service flights across the Pacific and around the world. As a result we have experienced many different levels of FBO and corporate aircraft ground handling services that are available at airports globally.

The Air Center One FBO operation evolved from our aircraft ferry service business, when Robin Leach recognised a need for a dedicated corporate aircraft FBO and ground handling service in New Zealand with an emphasis on a very personal service. In 39 years of international aircraft ferry service operations, Air Center One has also developed many longstanding relationships with other select ground handling agents and FBO’s who understand and share our level of service, client commitment and industry standards.

After 28 years Air Center One continues to lead services in New Zealand and the South Pacific to the elite traveller and corporate jet aircraft operator. While we easily service larger airline type aircraft operations we remain focused on our core business of providing services to the VIP, private and corporate aircraft operator.

We invite you to take advantage of our experience, local knowledge and superior client service. Make Air Center One your first choice for the set up of ground handling services and flight facilitation in New Zealand and throughout the South Pacific Islands.
