Sky Valet has completed the acquisition of 100% of the shares of JetBase, Portugal’s leading FBO network. JetBase’s 10 FBOs, situated at the main Portuguese airports Lisbon, Porto, Faro, Cascais and Beja, on the islands of Madeira, Azores and Cape Verde, and in central Africa in Mozambique and Angola, will now operate under the commercial name of Sky Valet.
The addition of these new destinations consolidates Sky Valet’s international expansion strategy, which aims to create a network of FBOs located in the most iconic areas. The company already provides ground-handling support services for VIP passengers, crew and aircraft at Madrid, Barcelona, Gerona, Valencia, La Coruna, Santiago de Compostela, Palma de Majorca, Ibiza and Malaga airports.
Dominique Thillaud, chairman of the management board of Aéroports de la Côte d’Azur (ACA) and Sky Valet, commented, “We are delighted with the addition of 10 new destinations, which fully fulfill the needs of our customers and our target to develop a consistent Sky Valet network. This acquisition allows us to expand our expertise across a new attractive area of the Iberian peninsula with a reach that even extends to Africa.”
Filipe Carvalho, general manager of JetBase, commented, “We are very proud to be part of Sky Valet network, because I really believe in the success of this ambitious project. Since the foundation of JetBase, we are committed to expansion. Our aim was to cover Portugal, the Azores islands, Madeira and also Africa to ensure a safe entry and exit from and to Europe to business aviation customers, to provide them the finest and widest range of services. From now on, our customers have more destinations at their disposal with the same high standards of quality.”
