ExecuJet has announced another successful year at last week’s World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, which took place on 17-20 January 2017, handling close to 300 business aircraft movements during the event.

With ExecuJet’s Zürich hangar fully booked for the entire period, ExecuJet also utilised its Munich FBO at Munich International Airport, located only 140nm from Zürich, welcoming seven aircraft for repositioning flights.

Basil Gamper, Manager, ExecuJet Zürich FBO, says: “It was a really exciting event this year. We had 21 staff working at peak times covering the FBO and hangar facilities, we handled six heads of state flights, arranged for an additional Limousine Audi A8 and a Mercedes V-Class to be available for passenger and crew transport and provided 300,000 litres of fuel. Our additional services at Munich were extremely successful and much-needed given the Zürich hangar was completely full – the hangar was welcome cover in the freezing weather conditions.

“Since 2003, when ExecuJet’s Zürich FBO opened for business, we have grown in our reach, capacity and services available for WEF. Our clients fly in from all over Europe as well as Africa, the Middle East, Asia-Pacific and the Americas on a wide range of aircraft, so the event is a great way to showcase how we are at the top of our game.”

ExecuJet’s Zürich facilities include short and long-term aircraft parking, aircraft handling, transfers, fuel, catering and towing services, in addition to its outstanding FBO and maintenance services.

The ExecuJet Zürich team is now looking forward to welcoming customers attending the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in St Moritz from 6-19 February 2017.
