Swissport Executive Aviation, a subsidiary of Swissport International AG, is further expanding its business in Morocco.
After establishing its first Moroccan fixed-base operation (FBO) for business and executive aviation in Casablanca in 2018, Swissport has now moved into a dedicated VIP terminal at Marrakech Menara Airport.
The newly built terminal for VIP flights and executive aviation opened on February 1, 2020.
On more than 500 square meters, the stylish facility offers lounge space for up to 40 passengers, including a bar and a media corner.
The terminal also includes a VVIP lounge for up to nine guests. The first floor is reserved for crew members and can accommodate up to 18 people. The crew area includes a TV lounge, a kitchen, two bedrooms and bathrooms with showers.
“With the opening of our second Moroccan FBO in this new, state-of-the-art VIP terminal in Marrakech we are further expanding Swissport’s strong position in the north African Executive Aviation market,” said Christophe de Figueiredo, CEO Swissport Morocco. “We are pleased to increase our services and quality for the executive aviation community traveling to and from Marrakech Menara Airport.”
Swissport Executive Aviation was first launched as a business line at the Nice Côte d’Azur Airport in 2001. In 2018, the Casablanca FBO was added to the global network. Today, Swissport Executive Aviation handles over 24,000 flights per year at over 90 bases around the world.
Swissport offers dedicated executive services in 25 countries, among them Algeria, Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Chile, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Finland, Israel, Japan, Kenya, New Zealand, South Africa and Tanzania.
