Sky Valet wins Ibiza FBO tender

Sky Valet has been awarded the tender to manage the Ibiza Business Aviation Terminal for the next five years.

Aena, the air navigation manager in Spain, is currently following the process to develop the FBO business model in Spain, and Sky Valet’s business win supports this target.

The Business Aviation Terminal is currently undergoing a complete refurbishment. The terminal remains open, and the grand opening of the new facility is scheduled for next month.

Sky Valet FBO will offer exclusive services, including luxury passenger lounges, dedicated security screening, boardroom facilities, offices and dedicated crew facilities. An additional welcome and transit area will be shared with other passengers.

Michel Tohane, director of business aviation at Sky Valet, commented, “This success is key for Sky Valet as business jet operators are requesting us to create a memorable travel experience for their valued guests while traveling through Sky Valet’s European network of FBOs.

“To achieve such expectation and provide world-class bespoke luxury services at Ibiza, we are currently investing half-a-million euros to renovate the terminal before the season starts.”

Roberto Zapatero, Sky Valet’s director for Spain, added, “Business aviation has grown significantly over the past few years in Spain and Sky Valet FBO’s arrival in Ibiza will bring both a strong brand and extensive European network to the airport.

“We are confident that our VIP guests will enjoy the newly refurbished FBO and we are looking forward to welcoming them very soon.”
