Luxaviation France has expanded to the French Riviera with the opening of an office on July 1 at Cannes Mandelieu Airport, parent company Luxaviation Group announced today. This marks its second location in France beyond Paris Le Bourget Airport, where Luxaviation France has a fleet of 20 aircraft and offers business aircraft charter, management, and maintenance.
The company’s Cannes office is being headed by Elodie Mekhmoukh, who will be responsible for driving growth throughout the Côte d'Azur area, including Nice Côte d'Azur and Cannes Mandelieu airports. Mekhmoukh previously worked as commercial director of Azur Helicopters and has 12 years of experience in both the private jet and helicopter charter industry.
According to Luxaviation, Cannes Mandelieu is one of the key hubs of the French Riviera and “serves as an important destination for business and leisure travelers.”
Meanwhile, Luxaviation Group has inked a three-year agreement under which Satcom Direct will be the charter operator's preferred connectivity supplier. The agreement provides access to high-speed data via Inmarsat’s Jet Connex and SwiftBroadband services. Satcom Direct is also working with Luxaviation to optimize its suite of SD cybersecurity solutions available through SD Pro.
