Astonsky terminal – Le Bourget
by Abdon FLORES
A VIP terminal will always be a plus in any major city of the world. The Clair Group, a well-positioned player in the aeronautical business, knows this; that’s why through its branch Astonsky, acquired in 2018 terminal 2 in Le Bourget airport and so develop this project. That’s the origin of the Astonsky Terminal, a sort of 5 stars facility pretty well communicated to Paris.
The terminal has three hangars (16,000 m²), a five floor building, and it’s functioning from mid-October the 24 hours. The ground floor shines with luxury and service: leather couches, a vegetal wall, panoramic view of the airport, assorted bar, concierge, and a chef specialized in French cuisine to propose a refined gastronomy for the travelers.
But probably one of the most astonishing aspects is the underground cellar: a 3,000 bottles collection of the best crus in the world. Of course there is a sommelier for this cave. And there is also a 6 tons sea water aquarium which serves as a crystalline curtain to see the runaways and the jets as if a mirage.
The first floor of the terminal is devoted to assist the crew: relaxation room, café, bar, showers and a sports area. Airplanes have a parking area, hosting and cleaning services… As Charles Clair, president of the group, has declared: “Astonsky motto is be astonished”. Doubtless you will be, since Astonsky is doing with this terminal a reference of French luxury for business aviation.
