Speyer/Ludwigshafen Airport looks back on over a hundred years of history as the former site of aircraft factories that grew to become a modern airfield in the former West Germany – with unchanging importance to the regional economy. As a key hub for air traffic in the Rhine/Neckar metropolitan area, the still young infrastructure with a runway length of 1,667 metres offers ideal conditions for a pleasant take-off and safe landing. In addition, key economic centres in the region can be easily reached from Speyer in little time.
Thanks to constant improvements, the airport can look forward to a secure future: the lengthening of the runway by 450 metres meets new safety guidelines, so that the airfield can continue to be operated under the latest European legislation. Silver Cloud Air’s customers here include business and private flyers who appreciate the excellent infrastructure and location. In this familiar environment, renting a hangar for our company in 2015 was nothing else but a logical decision.
In 2006, an Executive Terminal was built at the western end of Düsseldorf Airport grounds to handle private and business aircraft. 12,000 planes carrying around 20,000 passengers that take off and land here are considered part of the “General Aviation” traffic segment. Ideally situated to serve numerous surrounding economic regions, the airport is well-known throughout the world. The 800 square metre terminal includes security and passport control, an executive lounge, and a conference centre.
There is also a pilots’ lounge and briefing room in Düsseldorf, where the latest weather data can be retrieved and flight plans submitted. Passengers can look forward to a pleasant and relaxing trip in the bright, central hall, which is manned at all times. The Silver Cloud Air fleet is available here to transport them across the European mainland from the state capital.
When shareholder Michael Sauer joined us in 2013, quickly followed by his own Cessna Citation CJ2+, it became clear that the General Aviation Terminal at Cologne Bonn Airport would also work as a location for Silver Cloud Air. The operator of the terminal enjoys our full confidence.
From landing to take-off, the service in the cathedral city is largely independent of external impacts and thus an ideal partner to the flexible services offered by Silver Cloud Air. Our needs are met, and we in turn can easily meet the needs of our passengers – including a pleasant atmosphere and consistently friendly service.
Some 35,000 business passengers make use of the “General Aviation Terminal” (GAT) run by Kurz Aviation Service every year. Twenty percent of all aircraft movements at Stuttgart Airport already go through the GAT. This is due to growing use by business travellers, who can also use Silver Cloud Air to get closer to their destinations faster.
The entire business flight service is exemplary: the operator offers an exclusive limousine service in cooperation with Porsche, as well as air-conditioned Sprinters with single seats and additional steps in cooperation with Mercedes-Benz – there’s no more comfortable or stylish way for passengers and crews to reach the apron.
