ExecuJet Zurich busy during World Economic Forum
The ExecuJet FBO at Zurich Airport was busy during the three days of the World Economic Forum in Davos.
ExecuJet handled over 150 business aircraft during the World Economic Forum 2014 held from 22-25 January.
ExecuJet also secured an exclusive parking agreement with Dübendorf Airport, a military facility located 5 nm north of Zürich airport.
Basil Gamper, ExecuJet’s Zürich FBO manager, said: “The WEF is always our busiest time of the year in Zürich and 2014 was no exception. We handled a record number of flights for visiting VIPs from all over the world, including several European and international heads of state.
Gamper added: “All passengers were handled through ExecuJet’s Zürich FBO and our agreement with Dübendorf enabled us to park an additional 40 aircraft at any one time.”
“I’m delighted ExecuJet’s business aviation clients were able to arrive and depart with ease whilst appreciating the discretion, privacy, friendliness and convenience of the two airports working in partnership.”
Nicole Gut, ExecuJet’s director of European FBOs, said: “The ExecuJet personnel in Zürich were well prepared for the extra business and pulled together as a dedicated team. The improving economic climate appears to have led to an increase in attendance at this year’s WEF, providing many industry leaders and a record number of politicians with the opportunity to discuss the challenges ahead.”
