EBACE 2023

Business leaders, manufacturers, government officials and business aviation professionals will soon gather at Geneva’s Palexpo for European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) on 23-25 May 2023. For all private aviation professionals, it’s the perfect event to learn about the latest advances in private aviation.
EBACE 2023 is a leading event focused on shaping the future of on-demand aviation. The event provides a platform for discussions on sustainability efforts and ideas that are driving the industry towards carbon neutrality by 2050. Attendees can engage with companies leading the way in future flight, explore cutting-edge technologies and innovations, and connect with clients and talent. The event also features presentations from industry experts discussing the big ideas that will shape the future of the industry.

Visit Jetex at EBACE

Jetex has been a major part of EBACE for many years and we invite you to be the first to discover our latest news and announcements at the event.

EBACE Location and Venue

Palexpo is Geneva’s biggest exhibition and convention center, conveniently located adjacent to both Geneva International Airport and the city’s rail station. The venue is also easily accessible by motorway from the rest of Switzerland, as well as from France, Germany, and Italy. On-site parking is available for 2,800 vehicles.

EBACE2023 Program Schedule

As well as the many exhibits and static aircraft displays, attendees can join a variety of Keynote speeches, panelist discussions and networking events throughout the event. You can find out more about the program and timings at the schedule here.

Flying to Geneva

Geneva Airport (IATA: GVA, ICAO: LSGG) is the main international airport serving Geneva. LSGG functions as an Airport of Entry (AoE) and offers a full range of General Aviation (GA) support services and ground handling equipment for business aircraft. The airport operates from 04:00 – 00:00 local time, seven days a week. Take offs and landings of non-commercial flights are allowed at Geneva Airport between 06:00 and 22:00. The airport is usually busy throughout the day. As there is only one runway, delays can sometimes occur due to inclement weather. However, this should not be an issue during the month of May, when conditions are generally favourable.

During EBACE, some of the parking areas normally used by general aviation will be restricted due to the static aircraft display. As a result, overnight parking may be limited during the event period.

Alternative Airports

Alternate airports which can be used for repositioning include Lyon–Saint Exupéry Airport (IATA: LYS, ICAO: LFLL)Zürich Airport (IATA: ZRH, ICAO: LSZH) and Basel Mulhouse Freiburg (IATA: MLH, ICAO: LFSB). All function as AoEs and offer a full complement of GA support services. However, due to their relatively long distances from the EBACE venue (140km, 280km, and 255km respectively), Geneva Airport remains the best available option. In order to guarantee your spot, it is recommended to ensure that all permits, slots, and permissions are arranged well in advance.

Landing permits for Switzerland

Swiss landing permits are mandatory only for charter (non-scheduled commercial) flights. Private non-revenue flights do not require landing permits. Documents which need to be submitted with the permit application include the plane’s airworthiness and registration certificates, air operator certificate (AOC), and insurance details. The official lead time is five working days, although permits are usually processed within two or three days.

Airport Slots & PPR

Slots are issued in 19-minute blocks, with all timings strictly enforced. Once the request has been approved, a confirmation number will be provided which should be entered in the remarks section of the flight plan. Prior Permission Required (PPR) is not usually required at LSGG, however, due to heavy traffic must be obtained during the EBACE period and other business conventions.

Fuel Uplift

VAT is applied on fuel sales in Switzerland. Enroll in our VAT exemption program today and experience the benefits of VAT-free fuel service. For further details, please contact

Customs & Immigration

Customs and immigration are cleared within the general aviation terminal at LSGG and is usually a fast and straightforward process. Passports of passengers and crew must have a remaining validity of at least six months. Visas may be required, depending on nationality. There are no visas on arrival in Switzerland, so they must be arranged prior to departure.


Hotels in Geneva charge premium rates with stricter cancellation policies during EBACE, with four-star accommodation starting from CHF 300 per night. Contact Jetex travel to discuss your EBACE hotel requirements.

Arrange Your Trip with Jetex

Our dedicated operations team is available 24/7 to look after all the technical details of your journey, allowing you to relax and focus on the purpose of your Geneva visit.

The first-ever race winner was the famous Cigar, a US-trained horse ridden by jockey Jerry Bailey. Last year’s race was won by Country Grammer under Frankie Dettori for American trainer Bob Baffert. After winning the Dubai World Cup four times, Italian jockey Dettori now joins Bailey as joint winningmost jockey of the race.

The evening culminates in the Dubai World Cup and boasts the highest prize fund of the night at USD 12 million.

Racegoers attending the Dubai World Cup have the opportunity of sampling something different this year when the iconic Sky Bubble hosts a sumptuous Iftar once the sun sets on 25 March 2023. Offering panoramic views of the racetrack and stunning Dubai skyline, the Sky Bubble is the highest point on Meydan Racecourse, looking down over the pulsating action. This unique venue will celebrate the Holy Month of Ramadan for the first time, with a five-star buffet on offer after the breaking of the fast is observed.

Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, is a significant and special time for Muslims around the world, and it begins on March 23, 2023. During this holy month of fasting and spiritual reflection, Muslims in the UAE abstain from food and drink during daylight hours as a way to focus on their faith and practice self-discipline.

The philanthropic activity plays a significant role in the Ramadan spirit and fosters a sense of solidity and support within the community. Many individuals and organizations help those in need by donating food and financial aid, as well as by giving them resources and services. The community also comes together in the evenings to break their fasts and participate in prayers.

The exquisite architecture of UAE mosques, particularly the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, is widely recognized, making it a must-visit destination during Ramadan. This sacred place offers visitors the opportunity to experience serenity and peace, witness evening prayers, and hear the call to prayer.

It is essential to follow local customs and traditions during Ramadan out of respect for the local community. This includes dressing modestly, refraining from public displays of affection, and avoiding eating, drinking, or smoking in public areas during daylight hours. It’s also crucial to be mindful of the increased religious devotion during this month and not to disturb those who are fasting by playing loud music or making loud noises.

During Ramadan, the daily routine changes, with shorter working hours for businesses and government offices and some restaurants and cafes being closed during the day. However, most restaurants and cafes remain open, and there are various Iftar (breaking fast) buffets to try the traditional Ramadan meal.

With Jetex Concierge, you can make the most of your visit during this special month and experience the traditions, customs, and culture of the UAE.
