Air Ops Europe welcomes ground support community to Cannes

Air Ops Europe played host to business aviation flight operations professionals for the second year with its premier event in Cannes, France.

The two-day conference and exhibition was held at Cannes Mandelieu Airport on September 20-21, and welcomed more than 350 attendees, almost double 2016’s number of visitors, as well as 40 exhibitors, up 30% on last year’s event.

Brandon Mitchener, CEO of the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) and organizers of the event, said, “Air Ops Europe answers the need for a platform for the business aviation community to build relationships, strengthen skillsets, drive competitiveness, and better position themselves for the future.”

At the show’s opening, keynote speaker Claire-Anne Reix of the office of the mayor of Cannes, emphasized the importance of business aviation for the local and regional economy. The other keynote speaker, Thierry Pollet, director of Cannes airport, confirmed his group’s satisfaction at hosting an event that enhances the appeal of a sector so vital to business and the local community.

“Thanks to all of EBAA’s hard work that goes into this event, the great facilities and people here at Cannes airport, and most of all, the exhibitors and attendees, we have pulled off a bigger, better edition of Air Ops Europe,” said Juergen Wiese, EBAA’s chairman.

Edwin Niemöller, FBO director at KLM Jet Center, who exhibited at the event, added, “This is a unique and valuable opportunity for the airport and ground services community in Europe to network, discuss issues and build closer relationships with customers and prospects. We’ll be returning next year.”
