New Luxury FBO on St Thomas

A new luxury fixed-base operator (FBO) opened at the St. Thomas airport last year, adding a luxury option for jet-to-yacht transfers in the Virgin Islands. Standard Aviation offers 5-star facilities and outstanding customer service for charter yacht guests.

The Island Global Yachting (IGY) Anchor Club, Preferred Vendor among Caribbean FBOs, Standard Aviation, works closely with Yacht Haven Grande Marina. Yacht charter guests can enjoy a smooth transfer between the airport and the marina.

The modern interior exudes luxury from the moment a guest steps into Standard Aviation. Expertly designed by Shari Pellows, the FBO includes separate areas for passengers and pilots. 

From flight monitoring to communicating with the yacht crew, the Standard Aviation team ensures guests can start enjoying their vacation immediately. On returns, they confirm that the aircraft are ready for guests and prepared for a prompt departure. 

The Building

The 24,000-square-foot hangar at Standard Aviation protects jets from the sun and salt air. The hangar at Cyril E. King Airport was designed with the tropics in mind. An elaborate surveillance system in and around the Standard Aviation hangar offers the utmost security.

Standard Aviation is the only FBO on St. Thomas with jet parking immediately adjacent to the lobby. This allows passengers to make quick transfers. A fleet of new ground vehicles is ready to transport passengers for international arrivals after they clear customs.  

Luxury FBO on St. Thomas: Excellent Reviews

With the highest-rated FBO reviews for the TIST airfield on Google My Business and AirNav, Standard Aviation provides a superior customer service experience. The team consistently receives 5-star reviews.

Air Elite Network

Standard Aviation is part of the Air Elite Network. A global collection of independent FBOs, the Air Elite title is only given to facilities of the highest caliber and teams demonstrating exceptional customer service. Team members have Air Elite service training inspired by The Ritz-Carlton standard of service.

Medevac Flights

Medevac flights are available through Standard Aviation’s partner, AeroMD. It’s the only service with dedicated air ambulances in the Virgin Islands. In addition, AeroMD offers peace of mind for charter guests should they experience a medical emergency. Since expert flight and medical teams are ready 24/7/365, AeroMD’s service can make a life-saving difference.

Air Charter Services

Breeze Air Charters, another tenant of Standard Aviation, offers fixed-wing charter flights. Ideal for island hopping, the Breeze fleet is based on the Pilatus PC-12 (which can fly direct to St. Barths). This is a fantastic option for yacht charter guests to connect with a yacht elsewhere in the region.

Guest Experience is Key

Above all, elevating the guest experience is the goal of the Standard Aviation team. Team members specialize in making jet-to-yacht transfers pleasant experiences. Indeed they understand that guests travel from afar to visit St. Thomas and often fly by private jet to maximize their vacation time.

The new luxury FBO on St. Thomas sets the standard for private jet travel in the Caribbean. Standard Aviation team members proudly welcome private jet passengers to the beautiful U.S. Virgin Islands.
