Successful start to year at World Economic Forum in Davos
Many VIPs headed to Davos, Switzerland again January 22-25. To satisfy the great demand from participants of the World Economic Forum for shuttle flights, part of the BHS Helicopterservice fleet provided service in and around Zurich to support our partner DC Aviation Switzerland.
BHS Helicopterservice is known for its high safety and security level and top-notch service quality.

New advertising at Nuremberg Airport
BHS Aviation is advertising its services with a poster campaign at the baggage claim area of Arrivals at Nuremberg Airport.
The only business helicopter service at Albrecht Dürer Airport picks up its passengers from any suitable place in the region of the metropolis and takes then to the airport avoiding traffic congestion or waiting times, or it can do the same vice versa. All the “vertical starter” needs is an unbuilt plot of land – like a sports field or company grounds. This exclusive service provides considerable benefits in terms of time for CEOs and company owners in the Franconian region: they can reach Albrecht Dürer Airport in record time making it possible for them to schedule several appointments in different places within one day. We look forward to your call and to advising you on your individual requirements.
