Global aviation services provider Luxaviation has acquired the Sky Valet FBO at Paris Le Bourget and will rebrand it as part of the Execujet chain. Sky Valet rented much of the 9,150-sq-ft (850-sq-m) terminal building, which is owned by Luxaviation France and houses its offices and a charter lounge.
That facility, one of seven service providers on the field, includes three private lounges, a crew lounge with dispatch office, a private terrace with airport views, onsite security, and dedicated secure vehicle parking. It also has more than 100,000-sq-ft of ramp area and space for customer storage and ground equipment. The FBO, which will retain its staff, earned a 12 percent market share at Le Bourget last year, handling more than 6,000 private aircraft movements.
“With the acquisition of the prestigious Paris-Le Bourget VIP Terminal FBO, we are able to further grow our 26 strong VIP terminal network under our ExecuJet brand, and provide our clients with an unrivaled full-service ground handling in an unparalleled location,” said Luxaviation Group CEO Patrick Hansen.
Sky Valet, which is owned by Aéroports de la Côte d’Azur, manages 22 FBOs throughout France, Spain, and Portugal, as well as an additional seven independent locations through its Sky Valet Connect affiliate program. After the sale of the Le Bourget location, the company still operates in France at Cannes and San Tropez.
