01/03/2017 KURZ AVIATION SERVICE CARES FOR G20 FOREIGN MINISTERS DELEGATIONS
The next meeting of the heads of states of the G20 Group will take place in Germany in July this year. The foreign ministers and diplomats of the G20 Group of Nations met in Bonn, Germany, for a preparatory meeting on February 16 and 17.
They discussed topics like: How can the agenda 2030 for sustainable development be implemented? How can global crises be avoided, before they arise? How can the G20 states improve their cooperation with the African continent?
The delegations traveled to Bonn with their governmental aircraft. Kurz Aviation Service handeled the majority of the special flight to and from Cologne/Bonn Airport. They also took care of seven additional delegations which used Kurz Aviation Service’s special tailored VIP-Service in the Business Aviation Centre Cologne (BACC), which is part of the Kurz Aviation Service Group. The governmental flights used business jets like the Gulfstream G450 and the Dassault Falcon 900, but some states are using bizliners like modified Boeing 757, Boeing 767, Airbus A319, Airbus A320 and the four-engined BAe 146.
For the BACC, which was officially opened in 2011, the G20 preparatory meeting was the largest ever event. All flights came in a very small time frame and left Cologne/Bonn right after the conference’s end on Friday afternoon. „Thanks to our preparations, which were well coordinated with the German Federal Foreign Office and the authorities, we handled the challenge without a hitch“, said Dirk Laufenberg, COO of the Kurz Group.
Kurz Aviation Service is based in Stuttgart, Germany, and operates General Aviation-Terminals (GAT) in Stuttgart, Cologne/Bonn, Frankfurt/Main and Egelsbach. About 35,000 to 36,000 passengers are using the GAT in Stuttgart annually. 20 percent of all movements at Stuttgart airport are handled by Kurz Aviation Service.
