AIR SERVICE BASEL BOOMS DURING ART BASEL 2015
22/06/2015, Basel - Switzerland
Air Service Basel (ASB) saw one of its busiest weeks so far during this year’s ART BASEL exhibition, which took place in Basel from 15th-21st June 2015. Air Service Basel’s FBO welcomed a record number of up to almost 350 movements, including almost 80 private and business jets flights on the peak day of the event, being a remarkable 15% increase in movements compared to last year’s event. A majority of movements this year were larger cabin sized jets, namely Challengers, Gulfstreams and Global Express aircraft.
“The ART BASEL is always the busiest time of the year and the ultimate test for our FBO”, says Claudio Lasagni, ASB’s CEO, “and I am delighted at how our team rose to the occasion this year.” He adds that “as every year, the outstanding cooperation and teamwork of the various partners and authorities at the EuroAirport Basel with Air Service Basel’s FBO team was a major contributing factor to the tremendous success.”
At this special occasion, ASB unveiled its expanded and renovated FBO facility at the EuroAirport Basel. Almost doubling its size, the roomier FBO now expands over two floors, and boasts two bright and spacious VIP customer lounges, a fully equipped conference room, as well as renovated and modernized customer bathrooms. The FBO is also expanding its crew lounge further to include a quiet and comfortable “snooze room”. Air Service Basel’s CEO, Claudio Lasagni, says “Our goal is to provide a world-class customer experience in an exclusive, discreet and secure environment. The recent enhancements to our FBO clearly underline the outstanding quality level of handling services, comfort and flexibility extended to all our arriving and departing guests.”
AIR SERVICE BASEL is a full service FBO, as well as an EASA & FAA approved Maintenance Organization, and a Beechcraft Authorized Service Center for King Air products, at the EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse (LFSB / LSZM) in Switzerland.
ART BASEL has been described as the ‘Olympics of the Art World’. Approximately 300 leading galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Africa show the work of more than 4,000 artists, ranging from the great masters of Modern art to the latest generation of emerging stars.
The city of BASEL is uniquely situated at the border between Switzerland, France and Germany. With its world-class museums, theaters, concert halls, medieval old town, and new architecture, it ranks as one of Europe's most alluring cultural cities.
