The long unused V-VIP centre at Lanseria Airport is being relaunched by an international fixed base operator – Million Air.
Million Air is adding the new Lanseria-based fixed base operator (FBO) to its growing global expansion with the introduction of the Million Air brand in South Africa.
Asteri Group opened the newly licensed location on 1 December, 2017 at Lanseria International Airport (FALA). This marked Million Air’s first arrival on the African continent and the first of two Million Air FBOs to South Africa, with a location at Cape Town International Airport to follow.
“Our introduction of Million Air to South Africa allows for a gradual but robust introduction to this very elite and unique aviation service offering, and we are extremely excited to be part of this,” says Herman Fleischmann, Asteri Group General Manager.
Headquartered in Houston, USA, Million Air is an award-winning network of luxury executive FBO terminals, spanning four continents. Million Air has been named the Best Large FBO Chain for the past five years for delivering exceptional service to aircraft owners, pilots and their guests.
Million Air Lanseria will be the flagship Million Air FBO in South Africa. The boutique FBO is designed with state of the art services, amenities and luxury detail recognised in Million Air FBOs worldwide.
In conjunction with Lanseria Airport management, Million Air Lanseria will supply fuel, hangar, ramp, and concierge services with their world class professionalism and quality.
Notably too, the facility also features an onsite Customs and Immigration office for the convenience of travellers arriving from abroad. This is in line with the legal struggle for the same facilities at Fire Blade Aviation at OR Tambo Airport
Million Air will open a second FBO at Cape Town International Airport which will serve the many destination travellers that are drawn to the Cape.

Preferential Customs and Immigration
