Air Service Basel’s VIP handling services feature direct ramp access, limousine transfers, and pilot and crew facilities. The FBO saw an extensive range of private and business aircraft during the exhibition week this year, including six arrivals from as far as China.
FBO manager Sandrine Schmidlin said, “Art Basel is one of the busiest times of the year and even the CEO comes down on the tarmac to lend a hand sometimes. That’s one of our strength’s as a small FBO, we really take pride in giving every one of our guests a perfect experience and every member of the ASB team is involved in that.”
“I’m incredibly proud of the team for their hard work this year and I’m also grateful to our partners and the authorities involved at the EuroAirport. Their support is highly appreciated and the activities in the week would not be so successful without their collaboration.”
