Swissport Executive Aviation wins license for four FBOs in Morocco


Swissport Executive Aviation has won the ONDA (Morocco National Airport Authority) FBO tender and will launch the first FBO at Moroccan airports.

Swissport Executive Aviation will operate facilities in Casablanca, Marrakech, Rabat and Tanger. Jetex was also awarded an FBO tender by ONDA and will be the only other provider of FBO services in Morocco.

Swissport’s Executive Aviation handling is implemented since 2013 at nine Moroccan airports. With more than 80 bases and FBOs globally, Swissport Executive Aviation has become a significant player in the FBO industry.

“Business aviation in Morocco has strong growth potential.”

Mark Skinner, senior vice president Ground Handling Middle East and Africa said: “Business aviation in Morocco has strong growth potential. We are excited and proud to support Morocco’s airports in developing state of the art FBOs that will put the country in a regional and African leadership role.”

In a first phase of the implementation, the current ONDA lounges will be managed by Swissport Executive Aviation. In a second phase, FBO buildings will be constructed which will be finished and fully operational within 2 years.

Rebecca Durrer-Bolle, vice president of Swissport Executive Aviation added: “For our Executive Aviation business line, the awarded licenses strengthen our position in the market and they will enable us to further increase our service delivery and quality for our customers.”
