Luxaviation enters US FBO market with Paragon Aviation Group partnership

Luxaviation Group has entered a strategic partnership with Paragon Aviation Group, creating a new network of 52 global FBOs that includes 25 in the USA. The Paragon Network is an elite group of carefully vetted independent FBOs facilitated by Paragon Aviation Group.

The strategic collaboration includes Luxaviation Group’s FBO management company ExecuJet, Paragon Aviation Group and BAA – owned by CMIG Aviation and part of the China Minsheng Investment Group – which provides aircraft management services for business jet owners in the Greater China region.

ExecuJet’s FBOs will join The Paragon Network in the coming months, doubling its size and creating a substantial international presence.

Patrick Hansen, CEO of Luxaviation Group, said, “We are proud to have the opportunity to combine our expertise and create an even larger network of more than 50 FBOs.”

Ettore Poggi, Group FBO director, Luxaviation Group, added, “We have a strong commitment to service excellence and Paragon Aviation Group enhances and extends our high-quality standards of service which we offer to our clients throughout our FBOs.”

The Paragon Network will see its traffic increase significantly as its FBOs become the preferred facilities for both Luxaviation Group and BAA’s combined fleet of more than 300 business jets.

Mike Delk, president and CEO of Paragon Aviation Group, commented, “We are looking forward to bringing the expertise of two elite FBO networks together to enhance the customer experience as they travel around the world.”
