With bases already in Toulon, Saint Tropez and Le Bourget airports, Aviaxess Helicopter & Jet, the European business aviation company, now has a presence in Moscow. FrÃ©dÃ©ric Aguettant, Aviaxessâ€™ president, and Charles Hergott, president of Allied Aviation, have signed a cooperation agreement for developing business airplane and helicopter transport in Russia.
An Aviaxess agency is now open in the centre of Moscow along with a base in Domodiedovo airport, Russiaâ€™s biggest airport, which transports 18,755,000 passengers annually. Aviaxess thus brings a fleet of 35 helicopters and 90 business jets to the Russian market.
This strategic positioningâ€”at a time when the Russian market is becoming a regular user of business aviationâ€”is perfectly in tune with the France-Russia Year. Aviaxess is thus helping to fulfil the wishes of the Heads of State of France and Russia by â€œsharing their spirit of initiative and their thirst for creationâ€ according to Nicolas Sarkozy, and â€œopening new and useful perspectives for cooperationâ€ according to Dmitri Medvedev.
FrÃ©dÃ©ric Aguettant himself is delighted with this new development, given that â€œRussia is a vast territory where scheduled airlines alone are unable to meet business travellersâ€™ needsâ€.Â He is particularly proud to be â€œtaking part in a new joint aviation effort between the two countriesâ€.
Founded in 2002 by FrÃ©dÃ©ric Aguettant, Aviaxess Helicopter & Jet launched the first business helicopter and jet time share programme in Europe with its Corporate Aviacard. Aviaxess offers a fleet of 35 helicopters based in the main European capitals, and 90 business jets available throughout Europe. Aviaxess also runs a fleet of 12 helicopters in Paris and on the CÃ´te dâ€™Azur.
Involved for many years in aerial coverage of major international sports events, Aviaxess offers â€œturn keyâ€ solutions dedicated to logistic support for international Formula 1 circuits, WRC, GP2 and WSR circuits, as well as transoceanic races such as Transat Jacques Vabre, the Route du Rhum, the VendÃ©e Globe and other major outdoor events like the Marathon of the Sands.
