Luxaviation Group has acquired a Paris Le Bourget FBO from Aéroports de la Côte d'Azur Group. The FBO was previously managed by ACA company Sky Valet France.
CEO Patrick Hansen says: “With the acquisition of this VIP terminal, we are able to further grow our 26-strong terminal network under our ExecuJet brand, and provide our clients with unrivalled full-service ground handling in a great location. We continue to focus on our core aviation services and further concentrate on innovation and expansion. As a group, we are determined to drive the curve and to invest worldwide into the sector's development.”
In 2019, Sky Valet Paris-Le Bourget managed over 6,000 business aircraft movements, representing 12 per cent market share. Sky Valet is a brand owned and managed by Aéroports de la Côte d'Azur. In France, the brand operated in Cannes, St Tropez and Paris-Le Bourget. ACA manages 22 FBOs in France, Spain and Portugal, and an additional seven independents locations through its marketing and sales partnership Sky Valet Connect. Sky Valet Paris-Le Bourget manages its own terminal with secured car parking, dedicated security filter and ramp area.
Dominique Thillaud, president of the board of Aéroports de la Côte d'Azur comments: “After five years of continuous growth, we are pleased with the finalisation of this sale contract to Luxaviation Group, which will extend the efforts and good results of Sky Valet Paris-Le Bourget. The dynamism of this VIP terminal at one of Europe's leading business airports can only contribute to the dynamism of our remaining FBO activities in France and in Europe.”
Karol Gueremy, CEO of Luxaviation France and Portugal adds: “We are looking forward to welcoming the 15 experienced colleagues of Sky Valet France to our Luxaviation team in Paris. Their recognised excellence matches the high-level service spirit of Luxaviation throughout the group and increases our service offering.” Karol Gueremy will be supervising the team of this newly acquired VIP terminal in Paris.
In 2019, Paris Le Bourget registered 25,000 departures.
