Spain’s Malaga Airport To Get Another Bizav Handler

 - March 22, 2007, 5:26 AM

Swissport Executive Aviation (SEA) is preparing for a November start up of business aircraft handling operations at Spain’s Malaga Airport from the general aviation terminal. It will compete with existing handling groups General Aviation Services, United Airport Services, Servisair, Sart and Iberia, although the latter three companies are largely focused on airline handling. The airport serves Spain’s popular Andalucia region, drawing many wealthy visitors to its resorts. This will be SEA’s 11th base in Europe and it intends to open another nine more facilities on the continent by the end of 2007. Swissport, SEA’s parent company, is in the process of being acquired by Spain’s Ferrovial group, which is expected to provide fresh capital to support the planned FBO expansion in Europe.
