Luxaviation extends reach in FBO industry

Luxaviation Group has marked a significant milestone in its journey towards increasing its leadership position in the FBO industry with the acquisition of Sky Valet. This strategic move bolsters its ExecuJet FBO network, bringing it to a robust 141 FBOs across all key regions globally. The acquisition synergises with Luxaviation's earlier 100 per cent takeover of the Paragon Network, affirming its steadfast dedication to elevating client service standards with consistent excellence and competitive pricing across an expanded geographical footprint.

Michel Tohane, president of the FBO division, will be spearheading the FBO integration of Sky Valet into Luxaviation Group with a special focus on the experienced staff of 90 new colleagues.

Tohane knows Sky Valet well as he successfully led its operations as executive vice president before joining Luxaviation in 2021. He says: "Being one of the global leaders in the FBO industry provides us not only with the opportunity to grow regionally, but we also have the ambition to push the green agenda of the group and of business aviation as an industry."

A recent example of the Group's commitment to transitioning towards more sustainable air transport is the provisioning of SAF to its clients at its Paris Le Bourget FBO.

CEO Patrick Hansen says: "This acquisition represents a pivotal moment for Luxaviation Group and our continued expansion in the global FBO market. After a regrouping phase following COVID, we are focused on enhancing our ability to deliver unparalleled service quality and operational excellence to our clients. Together with Sky Valet, we continue expanding the reach of the ExecuJet network and our ambition of sustainability, setting new benchmarks in the industry."

This is underpinned by a series of international certificates and awards, proof of ExecuJet's day-to-day excellence, and a recent survey on market perception showing that ExecuJet is the most admired FBO chain for its customer service.
