Luxaviation Group has sold off the ground handling division of French operator Unijet, which it acquired early in 2014, to Aéroports de la Côte d’Azur Group (ACA).

Unijet’s Paris-Le Bourget operation included full service ground handling from the company’s own FBO.

The Le Bourget facility will now be run under ACAs Sky Valet brand.

“Sky Valet at Le Bourget brings together the key features our clients seek: a location, a high level of service and a networked ranked among Europe’s top two business aviation groups,” said Michel Tohane, director of the General Aviation Business Unit of ACA.

“This move is consistent with the strategy to develop the General Aviation activities, initiated in 2013 with the acquisition of the Golfe de Saint-Tropez airport.”

The company also operates FBOs at Cannes Mandelieu Airport and Saint-Troupez Airport.

“It is important for ACA’s development of Business Aviation to be present at the key stops and Paris-Le Bourget is Europe’s leading airport in the sector,” said Dominique Thillaud, chairman of the board of ACA.

“Business aviation operators, pilots and passengers turning to Sky Valet will benefit from comprehensive handling services and a similar range of high-end services wherever we operate. At Le Bourget we now have an entirely new dedicated terminal, which makes the perfect platform for solid international growth.”
