Welcome to the future of FLYINGGROUP

Today we officially open our new headquarters in Antwerp and proudly launch our new logo.

Over the last decades, we have seen a lot of changes in the business and private aviation industry. Business aviation is about creating a unique service and making the most of a passenger’s time. One of the most significant trends in the industry is the commitment to reducing its carbon footprint and mitigating climate change. 

With the opening of the new headquarters in Antwerp, we wanted to harness the momentum and revitalise our entire brand identity. We look at what’s ahead with respect to what lies behind. We continue to invest in our core strengths, founded on the in-depth understanding of our customer. It begins with thoughtful leadership, a shared awareness of the core purpose and brand fundamentals. It’s about finding new ways to delight customers, to engage employees and to demonstrate our competitive advantage.

Everything we do starts from a simple belief: every journey should be a joyous experience. This regards both our customers and our employees, manifesting the core of who we truly are. “We are an energetic company, providing delightful business and private aviation solutions, moving people and bringing peace of mind — anywhere, anytime.” Our outstanding crew and staff share their expertise and commitment to ensure uncompromising safety and comfort, and they are destined to answer all our customers’ desires and needs.

This determination is defined by our core values:

SPIRITED

– We are devoted to what we do: it’s not a job, it’s a calling. We are obsessed with providing the best flying experience and are willing to go the extra mile.

TRUSTWORTHY

– As our customer’s partner, we are committed every step of the way. We have the very best people and experience in-house to guarantee a delightful service.

RESPECTFUL

– We always handle with care and profound respect for our heritage, demanding regulations, delicate equipment, the environment, and the customer’s expectations.

To clarify what we as a company stand for, we captured the essence of our brand in one meaningful and memorable tagline. “FLYINGGROUP – DESTINED TO DELIGHT.” This deceptively simple phrase is the shorthand for our brand identity; a guiding principle for all that we do and promise to all our customers.

Our state of the art headquarters capture this all in the most beautiful and stylish setting. This remarkable zero energy building is Belgian design at its finest. FLYINGGROUP is now soaring steadfast towards the future and we look forward to welcoming you soon.

FLYINGGROUP goes the extra mile for their customers

Despite the challenging circumstances currently felt worldwide, a successful mission took place for 10 special little passengers

On Sunday morning, 21st June 2020, a flight safely arrived at Cologne Bonn Airport, Germany, which brought 10 orphaned children from Haïti to Europe to their new adoptive families.​​

FLYINGGROUP guarantees the health and safety of all its passengers with strict sanitary measures ensuring peace of mind for all. Each mission is meticulously planned in detail by aviation professionals using the best technology and years of experience.

FLYINGGROUP’s crew of 3 pilots and a Flight Attendant knew that this mission would stay in their hearts forever, as they took great care of the passengers every step of the way. The children’s families will be forever grateful to Bruno, Xavier, Steven & Mietje for their efforts.

The FLYINGGROUP team of 150 dedicated professionals continually strive for the best, both for their passengers as well as the aircraft owners who allow these charter flights to go ahead.

The whole team has been touched by this and it has been a huge achievement under the current circumstances. We are all proud to work for a company that aids relief efforts like these.

Your Personal Flying Space To Keep You Safe

We look forward to welcoming you back in your personal FLYINGBUBBLE.

FLYINGGROUP’s devoted team will continue to safeguard your safety and health.

Rest assured that we are ready and prepared!

A word from our President, Bernard Van Milders

Dear customers, guests, employees, suppliers, and friends,

First of all, I hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy!

Since the outbreak of the COVID 19 virus more than 3 months ago, aviation has gone through turbulent skies. The closing of borders and other necessary measures taken by countries and aviation authorities has also had a huge impact on business aviation.

From one day to the next, we were limited to essential travel and this is exactly what we have been doing, taking into account the strict regulations imposed by governments, aviation authorities and virologists.

It is still uncertain when we will all go back to normal but we see borders slowly but surely reopening and some measures being lifted.

With this said, we want to assure you that we are ready and prepared!

That’s why we, FLYINGGROUP, created your personal FLYINGBUBBLE; a series of sanitary measures to guarantee your peace of mind while flying with us.

Our devoted team will continue to strive for the most important things in life; your safety and health.

 

Bernard Van Milders

Your trusted charter partner during COVID-19

During these trying times, we at FLYINGGROUP would like to extend our services to you, in getting you or your loved ones home, safely.

If you are looking to avoid crowded airports or to evacuate from affected areas, you can count on us to get you home. We are equipped to support repatriation missions and the transport of essential workers and the positioning of your flight crew to where they need to be.

At FLYINGGROUP, we make your safety our mission.

We have been equipped for several weeks with Covid Kits on our aircraft and we have been implementing the most diligent sanitation practices, pre and post flight to ensure that our clients and crew are safe.

Special CoViD-19 “Universal Precaution Kit (UPK)” were ordered with “Med Air International SOS” and are onboard of our aircraft since the outbreak of the pandemic. These kits enable our crew to “isolate” passengers or colleagues with CoViD-19 symptoms, and to help contain the onboard/in-flight transmission of pathogens putting the other aircraft occupants at risk..

In addition, FLYINGGROUP has special operational procedures for passenger categorization and seat assignments, onboard services delivery, catering facilities, self-monitoring, exposure risk assessment and potential quarantine measures for passengers and crew.

Before and after flight, each aircraft is routinely disinfected and special cabin services information is displayed on safety cards in the back of each seat.

The feasibility of every flight is carefully checked and planned by our operations control center to ensure that all country regulations and airport procedures are adhered to

Strasbourg Airport and FLYINGGROUP are proud to unveil their newly established Joint Venture for the development of a new VIP Complex which acts as a Terminal for the Head of States Flights serving the Capital of the EU but as well as an FBO for the increasing Business Aviation traffic.

Additionally, two hangars in the size of 3000 m2 and 2000 m2 and a dedicated Fuel Station will be constructed in the new future.
The project will be run jointly as Strasbourg Executive SAS.
As an absolute highlight, Strasbourg Executive customers will be enjoying the Bugatti branded FBO, the brand well known for its artistic approach combined with superior technical innovations in the world of super sports cars.

The Alsace based luxury car manufacturer will deliver for their esteemed clients the most elegant furniture designed in spirit of italian-born industrial designer Ettore Bugatti.

It is self-speaking that the dedicated personnel are trained at highest levels to satisfy the requirements of VIP and Head-of-State services.
Strasbourg Executive new complimentary crew lounges are located airside in its new and dedicated terminal. The lounges will feature a relaxation area with the option of enjoying complimentary snacks and beverages, watching cable television on a large flat screen television or working at one of their computer stations that include free Wi-Fi, printer, scanner, and fax capabilities.


In addition to the crew lounges, Strasbourg Executive will have its 3’000 square meter hangars that can accommodate aircraft as large as a Boeing BBJ or multiple Bombardier Global 6000 or Falcon F8X – they will offer a welcoming alternative to crowded airports nearby. The hangar also features an additional 300 square meters of office space which makes it suitable to host an international MRO. The hangar is fully heated and under 24-hour security surveillance.
Understanding how important it is for customers to keep costs at an efficient level, Strasbourg Executive offers several services that allow for savings. As a result, Strasbourg Executive contracted World Fuel Services as an exclusive fuel service provider which will provide reliable fuel supply at cost-effective pricing. They will construct and operate a dedicated fuel farm that will grant short refuelling times and making the airport a desired destination for international fuel stops. Additionally, Strasbourg Executive offers customized parking options that can reduce costs and complimentary bookings with the Strasbourg Executive discounted rates at the Capitals top hotels.
Strasbourg Airport CEO Thomas Dubus states « This partnership with FLYINGGROUP in Strasbourg Executive to run a new hangar and this new FBO with its superior lounges, designed and decorated by the most iconic local luxury brands will ensure that all our business aviation customers will receive the best and seamless experience they deserve.


The accuracy of the project will be enhanced by the additional infrastructures delivered in conjunction by the airport: New aprons dedicated to business aviation, dedicated fuel farm and a new Head of State Terminal, able to welcome the guests of the European Capital »
