Business aviation handling company Cat Air Service is preparing for a surge of traffic at Zurich Airport, Switzerland, ahead of the World Economic Forum on January 23-26.
The 48th World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos is forecast to host a number of heads of state from G7 and G20 economies; leaders from government and international organizations; business professionals from academia, the arts, and the media; and individuals from the public and private sector to discuss worldwide interests and issues.
Cat Air Service is one of the handling companies closest to the event and is the only FBO at Zurich Airport to have a private airside lounge.
Roger Buchner, general manager at Cat Air Services, said, “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.
“The majority of the Cat Air Service team were working for other companies at this airport when President Clinton arrived 20 years ago, so we know what to expect. 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.”
