Barcelona is preparing for the Mobile World Congress 2018, the world’s largest gathering for the mobile industry, which takes place between the 26th of February to the 1st of March at the venues Fira Gran Via and Fira Montjuïc.
The event organizer (GSMA) is expecting a new record of participants this year, with about 110.000 professional visitors travelling to the Catalonian capital to find out the latest innovations in mobile solutions, showcased by over 2.000 international exhibitors. In summary, it is the most relevant event in the telecom sector and an unmissable yearly appointment for the professionals and companies of the sector coming from the whole world.
During the 4 days of the congress Barcelona becomes a heavily demanded destination for regular flights and private jet charters, as most delegates choose to arrive by plane. Last year, Barcelona El-Prat airport operated 343 private flights, which meant a 300% increase over a typical week in February. The majority of the private jet arrivals came from Great Britain, France and Switzerland, using mostly aircraft of the Cessna and Dassault families. Another important share of private flights is usually operated by long-range aircraft, such as Global Express, Bombardier 7000 and Gulfstream jets.
It is important to keep in mind that the MWC attracts a large amount of private jets, thus restricting the number of available slots and parking stands. For this reason, we recommend that you book your jet to Barcelona in advance.
