Skyservice Business Aviation continues its North American expansion with the official opening of its Fixed-Based Operation at Vancouver International Airport, YVR.

“We are delighted to welcome customers to our newest FBO facility,” said Benjamin Murray, President and CEO of Skyservice. “Vancouver is an essential hub for Canadian commerce and recreation and a key location for our clients. We intend to make further investments at the airport, including expanding our hangar footprint, providing on-site maintenance, repair, and overhaul capabilities, and operating sustainability initiatives.”

Skyservice was the first business aviation company, in partnership with World Fuel Services, to offer sustainable aviation fuel in Canada to business aviation clients at Toronto Pearson International Airport, YYZ. The company is targeting a goal to be carbon neutral by 2050.

Skyservice Vancouver is the company’s eleventh fixed-based operation and sixth World Fuel Air Elite location in Canada, providing extensive ground handling, fueling, and hangarage services along with bespoke customer service, aircraft management, and private jet charter services.


Skyservice operates two additional locations dedicated solely to MRO services in Muskoka, Ontario, and Montreal, Quebec. The company is also expanding into Napa, California, this spring and constructing an additional private jet center in Seattle, Washington, to replace its existing facility.

“We are thrilled to announce our expanded relationship with Skyservice, a trusted leader in aviation services,” said Malcolm Hawkins, senior vice president at World Fuel Services. “Our new agreement marks an important milestone in our growth strategy, allowing us to invest and expand with Skyservice at Vancouver Airport.”

The Skyservice FBO at YVR offers a multi-level passenger lounge with views of the Pacific Mountain Range, three heated hangars, and a 175,000-square-foot ramp space capable of accommodating aircraft like the Global 7500/8000 and Gulfstream 700/800s.
