In January 2023, Germany-based DC Aviation and France-based ground operations and flight support provider G-Ops will open a brand new FBO at Nice airport in France.

The FBO is in an excellent location, which helps to optimise operations and support services to a level enjoyed by DC Aviation clients at other locations in Europe and the UAE, and includes a spacious lounge designed by architects Hollin + Radoske. G-Ops' experience in ground services for VIP clients and its historical presence in the French Riviera are also a strength. As Nice is one of Europe's most popular and busiest airports, DC Aviation G-Ops believes the new FBO will be able to demonstrate the quality, efficiency, operational excellence and unique customer experience of travelling with DC Aviation with the support of G-Ops to new and existing customers.

Both companies place immense importance on the environment and effectively minimising emissions. Enormous effort has gone into planning and creating a facility that has a minimal carbon footprint. The amount of energy consumption and the materials used to build the FBO have been chosen to provide maximum efficiency while incorporating the use of green energy. In looking to the future and maintaining a keen interest in innovation, plans are in place to deploy eVTOL support as well as alternative energy resources for aircraft (electric, hydrogen etc).

G-Ops CEO Karim Berrandou says: “DC Aviation-G-Ops will be an integral part of the airport ecosystem and maintain close collaboration with airport authorities, acting as our clients' unique point of contact to deliver best-in-class services.”

DC Aviation CEO Michael Kuhn adds: “We are looking forward to building a dependable and close-knit cooperation with the airport and our local partners to achieve set goals, in terms of sustainability as well, while offering our customers facilities that meet our high standards with respect to quality, comfort and discretion.”
