SEA Prime closes 2018 with growth of 2.5%

SEA Prime – the sole manager of the business and general aviation infrastructures of Milan Linate and Malpensa closed 2018 posting growth of 2.5 per cent and a total of 26,000 movements.

The Italian operator is exhibiting at the NBAA’S 2019 Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference (SDC2019) taking place in San Antonio, Texas from 29 January to 1 February and is located at Booth #1900.

For 2019, SEA Prime said it is getting ready to launch an ambitious new project: the June opening of the new terminal dedicated to business and general aviation in Milano Malpensa Airport.

This marks a concrete step towards the further expansion of the business, which will make it possible to consolidate and scale positions in the European ranking, where the Milan-based company currently enjoys a first place in Italy and fifth on the European business and general aviation market.

Milano Malpensa Prime, which already manages a 5,000 square metre hangar used to shelter the latest generation executive jets, will develop over a surface area of approximately 1,400 square metres in a dedicated area of the airport.

The polyhedron, whose shape recalls that of a gem, is characterised by precious finishes for common areas and private lounges, designed to welcome passengers and crew as they arrive and depart, offering them a relaxed atmosphere, also thanks to the refined furnishings and lighting. Direct access, together with dedicated security filters and controls, will complete the service.

The recurring element of the restyling to be launched by Milano Prime, starting 2019, is precisely the gem: the perfect synthesis of contemporary luxury, territorial rooting and style becomes, in its essential result, a real symbol of luxury and the new “frontier” of General Aviation: a real gem nestled in the territory.

“The opening of the new Milano Malpensa Prime Terminal is a great opportunity not only for our business, but for the entire territory where it is located. Together with Milano Linate Prime, at just 7 kilometres from the city centre, it will provide a second access route to the heart of northern Italy and Europe, with premium services offered directly or with our partners,” said SEA Prime general manager, Chiara Dorigotti.

2019 will see the opening of new lounges at Milano Linate Prime too, the hub just 7 km outside the city centre: refined, elegant ambiances measuring a total of approximately 300 square metres, designed to offer passengers and crew alike complete relaxation and the utmost comfort right up until their flight departs.

Infrastructural development and investments at Milano Linate Prime Terminal will also continue into 2020, with the construction of dedicated new hangars.
