European FBO network Aviapartner Executive has launched a new brand with Argos VIP, an FBO services provider in Italy, following their successful merger two years ago: AviaVIP. With over 40 stations in France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands, AviaVIP offers the largest FBO network in continental Europe.

With the backing of Aviapartner's unique capabilities in commercial aviation, AviaVIP can support all types of aircraft, from light turboprops to the Boeing 747, and all types of flights: VIP, travellers, head of state, governmental, military, helicopter and ambulance.

Fully committed to electrified GSE, paperless operations and environmental protection since 2010, AviaVIP is also a leader on sustainability within the handling industry.

AviaVIP is conducting an extensive programme of refreshing its premium FBO facilities to provide passengers and crews with enhanced comfort and convenience during their journeys. Each FBO will display a consistent, recognisable look and feel.

Aviapartner CEO Richard Prince says: “This new brand reflects our commitment to exceptional FBO services and sets the stage for a new era of innovation and growth. Our brand identity and planned renovations underscore our dedication to meeting the evolving needs of our customers, passengers and crews, ensuring that AviaVIP remains at the forefront of the FBO industry.”

This new brand does not impact the contacts, account numbers and names of the legal entities of the FBOs and handling stations.

The company has recently expanded across Spain with the addition of six new locations, giving it an impressive network of 17 FBO facilities throughout the country. The newly added locations span prominent cities and regions including Jerez, Barcelona, Madrid, Donostia-San Sebastian, Bilbao and Granada. Each FBO facility will be equipped with the latest infrastructure, ensuring a seamless and efficient experience for VIP customers as well as crews.

“This achievement reflects our dedication to meeting the evolving needs of business aviation operators and our commitment to delivering unparalleled service and convenience to our clients. We look forward to continuing to provide top notch FBO services across our expanding network,” says general aviation manager John Kay.

AviaVIP's FBO facilities offer a comprehensive range of services tailored to meet the diverse needs of business aviation operators as well as travellers across Europe. These services include aircraft handling, fuelling, aircraft parking, ground support, concierge services, customs and immigration assistance, as well as passenger and crew lounges equipped with modern amenities.

AviaVIP is now strategically positioned to serve the thriving business centres, exclusive tourist destinations and major events hosted in the country. The company's commitment to exceptional service, operational excellence and customer satisfaction has propelled its rapid growth and earned it a reputation as a trusted partner in the business aviation industry.

AviaVIP's expansion in Spain aligns with its long term vision of becoming a leading player in the European business aviation market. The company remains committed to investing in infrastructure, technology and talent to ensure the highest level of service quality for its customers,” adds Prince.
