Bermuda: Universal Aviation To Close FBO, 10 Jobs Lost

Universal Aviation announced today [July 26] that it will be closing its general aviation FBO at L.F. Wade International Airport effective Aug. 31, 2013, and that all ten staff members will be affected.

“We have made the extremely difficult decision to close our Universal Aviation Bermuda ground support location effective August 31, as traffic did not meet the level we expected,” said Adolfo Aragon, Senior Vice President, Universal Aviation.

“Universal Aviation would like to thank our loyal employees for their dedication. We would also like to thank the local airport authorities, and government officials for their support and for giving us the opportunity to provide ground support services over the last year.”

Universal Aviation Bermuda officially began operations Aug. 9, 2012. The company will continue to provide services until the August 31 close date.
