Art Basel 2018


Charter A Private Jet to Art Basel

June, 14th – June, 17th 2018

Flying with Falcona to Art Basel is one of the most convenient way to join the most famous art exhibit in Europe this June. For a completely hassle-free experience you can book a chauffeur transfer from the airport to and from Basel Airport to your chosen location.


Our Basel show brings the international artworld together, with 291 of the world’s leading galleries showing the works of over 4,000 artists. A full program of artworld talks takes place each day. Exhibitions and events are also offered by cultural institutions in Basel and the surrounding area, creating an exciting, region-wide art week.

Where Is Art Basel?

Messe Basel,
Messeplatz 10
4005 Basel,
The show takes place at the Swiss exhibition site Messe Basel, featuring a hall designed by international architects Herzog & de Meuron of Basel.


Close proximity to two international airports makes getting to Basel quick and convenient. From EuroAirport Basel it takes just 10 minutes by car, while Zurich Airport is an hour away. 


Slot lead times differ from one airport to the other, but we always recommend that you request these as soon as a possible for your flight. This is even more important when major events such as Art Basel take place, as there is a limited space for aircraft. In most cases there is a first-come-first-serve rule applied.

Also, there are airports that are very congested and there may be limited options to consider when requesting airport slots.



A private jet flight allows you to maximise that precious time. Compared to a scheduled flight journey which requires passengers to arrive at the airport two hours before your flight, a private jet charter flight means turning up just 20 minutes prior to departure.

There are no long check-ins or security checks to endure and on some flights it’s even possible to turn up and step aboard your aircraft straight away.

With a private jet flight, transfer times are invariably shorter. Commercial flights are limited to using the few major airports in any region, but with a smaller aircraft you have the option of landing at a smaller, local airport, with a far shorter transfer time.

With a private jet charter you are in charge of the time that you want to fly, not the airlines. If you are in hired accommodation (as opposed to your own) scheduled flight times may not tally with check-in times – but with your own jet flight this isn’t a problem.


Your luggage comes with you and stays with you on a privately chartered jet. As a group, the aircraft is all yours so you can relax without the worry of other passengers intruding. In general private jet terminals are separate from the main hub airport, allowing you to arrive in private as well.


When you charter a private jet, you pay for the whole aircraft regardless of how many people are travelling. If you fill the aircraft then the cost per person of your flight is comparable to a first or business class ticket. This is particularly the case for winter sports trips, which are often taken in larger groups such as a groups of friends.
