The Air Service Basel team experienced an influx of private jet traffic to the city for its annual international art fair, Art Basel from June 10-16. This year, the FBO saw a record 10-times the average daily movements on the first day of the show to kick off the festivities.
Air Service Basel supported guests with its full range of services and support for the duration of the event. The show, dating back to 1970 with 90 galleries and 30 publishers, now boasts modern and contemporary works from more than 4,000 artists shown at Messe Basel.
The week-long event – encompassing VIP viewing for the first half of the week and public viewing the last half – presented a unique opportunity to serve clients from around the world, greeting returning guests and welcoming new customers.
The FBO was a convenient choice for event traffic, situated just 10 minutes from Messe Basel. While passengers enjoyed Art Basel, crews relaxed in Air Service Basel’s pilot lounges.
Laura Gambell, Air Service Basel’s marketing communications manager, said, “We always look forward to welcoming guests to Art Basel,” said. “We have the opportunity to be their first and last impression for the week’s trip, and strive to excel in every little detail to deliver a VIP experience for the show. Now that the event is over, we’ll reflect on our operations and begin preparations for next year.”
