Dassault Aviation Business Services, located at Geneva airport in Switzerland with a unique position both on the north and south aprons, is the latest FBO to join the Paragon Aviation Group network, a collection of audited FBOs and handling agents. The facility provides a full complement of FBO amenities for pilots and passengers, and services the smallest business aircraft to airline-size jets. The FBO boasts Swiss and French onsite customs and immigration, well-equipped and newly refurbished lounges and a variety of ground handling services, along with fuelling capacity. During wintertime, deicing is also available in-house.
“We are delighted to join the Paragon Network, which marks another important step in the development of our FBO activities by delivering the safety, service and value Paragon customers have come to expect from the network,” says Dassault Aviation Business Services president Franck Madignier.
Co-located with TAG Maintenance Services, which is now a Dassault-owned company, on the field, FBO customers can take advantage of its convenient location to handle any scheduled and unscheduled maintenance services that may be required, ranging from ramp assistance and line maintenance to heavy projects such as painting, cabin systems installation, cabin refurbishment and avionics upgrades. The one-stop-shop with highly trained mechanics also features a hangar that can accommodate up to 18 aircraft.
“Geneva is a renowned, international hub, and we are delighted to afford our customers yet another world-class FBO,” says Megan Barnes, president of Paragon Aviation Group. “With a company history dating back to 1916, Dassault's commitment to excellence in everything it does pairs well with our company's focus on safety, customer service and superior value. With Dassault joining our notable group of FBOs, we are keeping pace as one of the largest FBO networks in the world.”
