Business Aviation handling company, Cat Air Service, anticipates a surge of traffic at Zurich Kloten Airport for the WEF on 23-26th January.

The 48th World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos is forecast to host a record number of heads of state from G7 and G20 economies, leaders from government and international organisations, business professionals from academia, the arts, the media and individuals from the public and private sector to discuss worldwide interests and issues. 

As the annual meeting grows so does the demand for Business Aviation services. Cat Air Service, are one of the handling companies closest to the event and as the only FBO at Zurich airport to have a private airside lounge, they expect to take on up to 3x more traffic over the course of the WEF week.

It’s the fourth year the company has successfully welcomed clients for the WEF, but 2018 could pose some new challenges to the team due to the unconfirmed rumours that President Trump will land at Zurich Airport. Cat Air Service’s General Manager, Roger Buchner anticipates some disruption but remains confident of the outlook for their overall handling and customer care.

“If President Trump lands in Zurich it’s going to be disruptive to procedures, not only in Business Aviation but through the commercial airport too. In saying that the majority of the Cat Air Service team were working for other companies at this airport when President Clinton arrived twenty years ago, so we know what to expect. And despite the strict security upheaval, we still managed to get all of our customers to their end destination. No matter what happens, we’re confident it will be the same this year.”

Cat Air Service’s mission is to provide every customer with a unique service that is professionally and discreetly executed. Buchner comments that “we predict the challenges during peak periods and we succeed at our company mission because we’re always as coordinated and prepared as possible.”
