ExecuJet Aviation Group’s fixed-based operation (FBO) at Zurich Airport, handled almost 400 aircraft movements for VIP passengers travelling to and from the World Economic Forum (WEF), held on 21-25 January, including a high proportion of long-range business jets.
Execujet once again had an exclusive agreement with Dübendorf Airport (LSMD), a military facility located 5nm north of Zurich Airport, to facilitate additional capacity requirements during the event. For the first time, ExecuJet was able to offer its full range of FBO services at Dübendorf, in addition to the customary aircraft parking facility, including customs clearance and border control conducted by Swiss authorities. Twenty-two aircraft flew to Dübendorf directly and were handled there by ExecuJet.
A record number of participants attended the 45th WEF: in addition to 1,500 business leaders from over 100 countries, with more than 40 heads of state and government leaders and 300 government ministers.
Basil Gamper, ExecuJet’s Zurich FBO Manager, says: “The World Economic Forum is an extremely important and busy time of year for our Zurich FBO.
"In total, ExecuJet sold almost 600,000 litres of fuel at Zurich and Dübendorf combined – a company record for the event.” www.execujet.com
