SmartJets and VIP Completions Announce Relocation to New Facilities

SmartJets, a turn-key aircraft dealer-broker, and sister company, VIP Completions, providers of maintenance and completions services, today announced the opening of new facilities at Fort Lauderdale International Airport (FLL).

The move to newly-built facilities at 1460/70 SW 43rd Street, on the southwest side of FLL, provides SmartJets and VIP Completions with a combined 4,400 square feet of purpose-built client hospitality and executive office space, adjacent to a state-of-the-art 15,500-square-foot hangar, capable of accommodating the latest generation of long-range business aircraft, including the Bombardier Global 7500. (A second identical 15,500-square-foot hangar is also available for overflow, as needed.) Additionally, the companies have acquired a nearby 9,500-square-foot workshop and warehouse location.


These new facilities respond to SmartJets and VIP Completions’ current and future expansion. Conveniently positioned within the perimeter of a major international airport, the new location offers proximity to top-tier OEM maintenance facilities, and the comfort and discretion expected by a discerning clientele.
