Skylink Services, the lone ground handling service provider for business aircraft at Cyprus’s Larnaca International Airport, became the 52nd Diamond Service member of the Air Elite Network, an international group of FBOs established in 2011 from the remnants of the Avitat network. Skylink’s 17,000-sq-ft facility is open 24/7 and features a spacious lounge that can accommodate 60 passengers at any given time, refreshments, a private meeting room with media and visual equipment, complimentary Wi-Fi access and car rental.
A separate crew rest area and briefing facility with flight planning and weather services is also available. The FBO also offers on-site customs, immigration and security screening, along with aircraft refueling, landing, parking and overflight permits. It operates a fleet of Mercedes and BMWs for executive transportation. The Cyprus government selected Skylink to construct and operate the airport’s head-of-state lounge facility, which is reserved for visiting dignitaries.
The Air Elite Network is part of the U.S.-based World Fuel Services group.
