LUXAVIATION GROUP EXPANDS FBO WITH ACQUISITION OF 17 SKY VALET LOCATIONS

Luxaviation Group, a prominent player in the aviation industry, has made a significant stride in its quest for global FBO (Fixed Base Operator) dominance with the acquisition of Sky Valet. This strategic move, announced recently, marks a pivotal moment for the group as it solidifies its position with a remarkable total of 141 FBOs spread across key regions worldwide.

The acquisition seamlessly integrates Sky Valet into Luxaviation’s ExecuJet FBO network, amplifying its service reach and geographical footprint. This expansion not only enhances Luxaviation’s ability to cater to its clientele with unparalleled service quality but also reinforces its commitment to competitive pricing standards.


Patrick Hansen, CEO of Luxaviation Group, expressed his enthusiasm for this milestone, stating, “This acquisition represents a pivotal moment for Luxaviation Group and our continued expansion in the global FBO market.” Following the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, Luxaviation Group has regrouped and is now laser-focused on delivering excellence in service and operational efficiency to its discerning clientele.


Central to Luxaviation’s growth strategy is its dedication to sustainable aviation practices. The acquisition of Sky Valet strengthens its capacity to procure and implement Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) across its expansive network. This commitment underscores Luxaviation’s proactive approach to environmental responsibility, setting new benchmarks for the industry.


Michel Tohane, President of the FBO division at Luxaviation Group, will lead the integration of Sky Valet into the group’s operations. With a wealth of experience, including his tenure as Executive Vice President at Sky Valet before joining Luxaviation, Tohane is well-equipped to oversee the seamless assimilation of Sky Valet’s 90 experienced staff into the Luxaviation family.


“To be one of the global leaders in the FBO industry provides us today not only with the opportunity to further grow regionally,” says Tohane, “but also to push the green agenda of the group and of business aviation as an industry.”


Luxaviation’s commitment to sustainability is evident in its recent initiatives, such as the provision of Sustainable Aviation Fuel to its clients at its Paris Le Bourget FBO. This proactive approach aligns with the company’s overarching goal of promoting environmental responsibility while delivering unparalleled service excellence.


Luxaviation’s acquisition of Sky Valet marks a significant milestone in its journey toward FBO industry leadership. With an expanded network, reinforced commitment to sustainability, and a focus on operational excellence, Luxaviation Group continues to set the standard for premium FBO services globally.
