European FBO chain Sky Valet has announced the first French service provider to join its Sky Valet Connect affiliate program. The company has signed an agreement with the operator of Avignon-Provence Airport for its IS-BAH-registered business aviation terminal to be branded under the Sky Valet Connect label.
Located at the heart of the triangle that covers the Lubéron and Provence regions, stretching from Montpellier to Marseilles, the airport plans to increase its private aviation traffic.
“We are delighted to join the Sky Valet network, and we are convinced that business aviation will be the major source of growth for Avignon-Province Airport,” said Michel Maridet, director of the airport’s management company.
Sky Valet launched the Connect brand in October, with its first locations in Italy and Bulgaria. The company’s own 22 FBOs are found throughout France, Spain, and Portugal.
“The faith that the operator of Avignon-Provence has shown in Sky Valet Connect reflects our ambition to strengthen our regional coverage in support of the growth of business aviation in Europe,” said Michel Tohane, Sky Valet’s executive v-p and director of parent company Aéroports de la Cote d’Azur Group’s general aviation business unit. “This new destination confirms the strength of our strategy and presents another step forward in our expansion strategy.”
