The new GAT, which will operate under the name GAT SJO General Aviation Terminal, is managed by GAT SJO, a consortium composed of Universal Aviation Costa Rica and local partners. The GAT will be part of the new domestic terminal at MROC, an infrastructure project which includes 15,260 square-feet. Some of the features and benefits of the GAT include:
- Exclusive VIP experience for private operators
- Onsite Customs, Immigration, and Quarantine (CIQ)
- Reduced ground time from plane to car
- No co-mingling with commercial passengers
- Roof-covered access both roadside and rampside
“Upon opening, GAT-SJO will provide a faster, better, and more secure experience for business aircraft operators,” said Adolfo Aragon, Senior Vice President, Latin America & Caribbean, Universal®. “The frustrating days of waiting in long lines mixed with commercial passengers, while being separated from your baggage are soon to be a thing of the past.”
Once GAT SJO General Aviation Terminal is officially open, upon deplaning, private passengers will be shuttled by their handling agents a short ride from the parking area to the GAT, which will have a dedicated area for CIQ. All private aviation ground handlers, as well as home-based operators (independent owners traveling international) at MROC, will be allowed to operate through GAT SJO General Aviation Terminal.
