Air Service Basel hosts record traffic during Art Basel 2016


Air Service Basel (ASB) handled 750 flights during the Art Basel 2016 exhibition in Basel on June 13-19, marking a 10% increase on 2015 operations during the same event.

The majority of movements included long-range and large cabin size business jets and to support with the expected surge in demand during Art Basel, ASB brought in additional team members from its joint venture FBO Cat Air Service in Zürich.

“Art Basel is an extremely important event and one of the busiest times of the year for our Basel FBO,” said Claudio Lasagni, ASB CEO. “This year, we handled a record number of flights for visiting guests from all over the world, and I am delighted that our team successfully met that demand, while still offering the highest standard of safety and service that our clients expect.”

Art Basel 2016 brought together 286 premier galleries from 33 countries, presenting the very best contemporary and historical material by around 4,000 artists. The show attracted an attendance of 95,000 across the six show days.
