Seven Andalucia Aviation handling offices are now owned by Universal Aviation Spain

Houston (April 3, 2023) – Universal Aviation Spain announced that it has acquired all seven Andalucia Aviation handling offices in Spain. The offices will now be rebranded as Universal Aviation® locations.

In 2019, Universal Aviation Spain acquired a minority stake Andalucia Aviation and a majority stake in 2021. Over that period, Universal Aviation Spain has been working to elevate service levels, particularly at popular leisure destination frequently visited by Universal Weather and Aviation, Inc. customers during summer peak season.  In early 2023, Universal Aviation Spain acquired the remaining minority stake in Andalucia Aviation, becoming its sole shareholder.

“Universal Aviation Spain has had a long and tremendous relationship working with Andalucia Aviation, which was strengthened through our acquisition in 2022,” said Gonzalo Barona, Jr., General Manager, Universal Aviation Spain. “Over the last year, we’ve upped standards at the seven co-branded partner locations and are now pleased to complete the transition of those locations to fully-branded Universal Aviation locations. Outside of the branding, customers will not experience any changes. We’re keeping the same great staff they’re used to, now fully branded Universal Aviation.”

The seven former Andalucia Aviation and now new Universal Aviation Spain locations include Almeria (LEAM), Ciudad Real (LERL), Granada (LEGR), Jerez (LEJR), Malaga (LEMG), Sevilla (LEZL), and Menorca (LEMH). These locations join existing Universal Aviation Spain locations in Madrid (LEMD), Barcelona (LEBL), and Girona (LEGE), giving our network a total of 10 locations in Spain.

“We began acquisition of Andalucia Aviation during the pandemic because we forecasted the rebound in leisure travel to Southern Span. We wanted to expand our footprint and raise service levels with an experienced partner in that region in time for the busy peak season,” said Barona. “We’re thrilled to complete the branding transition in time for another summer of record-setting traffic volumes we anticipate.”
