At PASflights, as experts in private aviation, we know that only individual planning can meet these needs. After all, it’s about more than just a journey. It’s about enjoying your flight at least as much as your destination.

At PASflights, we reliably work hand in hand with our customers and partners to offer the best charter solution for oversized, dangerous, time-critical or even humanitarian air freight. With access to all types of aircraft and analysis of routes, loadings and schedules, we are able to organise an aircraft to suit the requirements. For ad-hoc, seasonal and project air freight, we also arrange partial charters and other flight solutions. So-called “Go Now” charter flights are used when orders serve to maintain production. This is the case in the automotive industry, for example, or when aircraft parts must be delivered for an aircraft with a technical defect and no other means of transport is possible due to time constraints.
Rely on us at PASflights for short transport times, efficient route planning and tailor-made logistics planning.
Flying on vacation doesn’t necessarily mean leaving your beloved pet at home for days or weeks. In a private jet your pets will, of course, fly comfortably in the cabin of the aircraft, unlike on commercial flights.
Although traveling by plane has become part of everyday life, there are still many people who feel insecure at the airport and get confused by the bustle of a large airport. Unfortunately, it happens again and again that guests do not find the right way, queue at the wrong counter or wander around in the wrong terminal – not with the support of PASflights airport service.
We will gladly organize additional personnel for your very private luxury, be it to carry the suitcases or to take care of the additional service on board : child care, toys, reading material, flowers, birthday cake or even your favorite champagne brand – let our service specialist know your wishes and we will take care of it.

New deluxe road show by the Counter Accomplices: PAS was there on the first tour
The roadshow of the counter accomplices took place in April for the first time as a deluxe version. Nine tourism partners from the hotel, rail, aviation and tour operator segments presented their current products. Our marketing and sales team from Professional Aviation Solutions was also there.
The roadshow was an excellent opportunity not only for us, but also for around 200 travel agents to learn about sophisticated travel in 2023. The expeditors took the chance to expand their knowledge and improve their luxury travel offer.
Due to the memorable concept of the counter accomplices with short, informative workshops as well as a get-together with dinner, there was plenty of time for exchanging conversations. “All the travel agents were really interested,” says Ulrike Kiesler, Marketing Manager at PAS. “In many one-on-one meetings, we were able to introduce the travel agents to booking a private charter flight as a supplement to their service offer,” she says. In addition to the workshops, a small trade fair took place. At the stands, the travel agencies were also able to inform themselves actively about the offers of the tourism providers.
The new Deluxe Roadshow toured four regions in Germany. The hosts were the five-star hotels of the Hommage Luxury Collection: the Maison Messmer in Baden-Baden on 25 April, the Hotel Nassauer Hof in Wiesbaden on the 26th, the Kö 59 in Düsseldorf on the 27th and the Parkhotel Bremen on 28 April.
We are already looking forward to the next tour. Here are a few visual impressions of the first roadshow Counter-Komplizen Deluxe.
Mallorca is always worth a trip. Ten travel agents who recently flew to the Balearic island thought so too. In addition to the organisers from Maesse Marketing Solutions and Faktor 3, PAS also accompanied the Famtrip as a co-sponsor. We spoke with our Charter Sales Manager Susanne Lautenschläger about the best stops on the trip.
Mallorca, the largest island of the Balearic Islands, is known for its breathtaking scenery, vibrant culture and sunny climate. Recently, Susanne Lautenschläger from PAS had the pleasure of traversing the island with other explorers and discovering some hidden event locations.
Mallorca has many beautiful traditional hotels that present a privileged location and luxurious facilities. One of these is the five-star Hotel Nixe Palace (www.hotelmallorcanixepalace.com/de/). The hotel is located only 18 kilometres from Palma airport. “The location directly above the bay of Cala Millor is fantastic – on each of the eight floors there are terraces overlooking the azure bay,” Susanne enthuses. “It was also particularly nice to learn about the long history of one of Mallorca’s oldest hotel complexes,” she continues. The Nixe Palace dates back to the 1950s and counts some famous personalities on its guest list. Over the years, the hotel has been modernised so that guests always find elegant, cosy and generously equipped rooms. The hotel also offers events on the beach – in an exclusive and private atmosphere.
Palma: A city full of charm and history
Palma, the capital of Mallorca, is only a short taxi ride away from the hotel. The city has much to offer: from the imposing La Seu Cathedral to the historic Almudaina Royal Palace and the narrow streets of the old town. The group took a guided tour of the city to learn more about its history and culture.
Palma is also known for its culinary delights. For example, the Gastroteca (http://gastrotecamauricio.com) in Palma’s market. “Unexpectedly, a little oasis opens up above the market – wonderfully furnished and very cosy – while it’s hectic downstairs,” Susanne tells us. The Gastroteca cooks live for its guests: fresh food in Mallorcan tradition.
After Palma, we went via “hidden paths” – the motto of the Famtrip – to various farms and fincas that groups in particular can book and visit for an event.
Finca Son Berga: Country estate for festive occasions
For example, the Finca Son Berga. The estate is located on the edge of the Sierra Tramuntana and stretches over 132 hectares, the majority of which is still used for agriculture. The historic stables and rooms have been completely renovated, creating a unique ambience for events. Weddings often take place on the finca. Various areas are available for the ceremony, aperitifs, dinner and dancing. More information can be found at sonberga.com/en.
La Morneta: Historical ambience with large garden
The nature reserve La Morneta was also worth a trip. The area is known for its spectacular scenery and offers numerous hiking trails with breathtaking views. In this nature reserve lies a finca of the same name with a huge garden, three indoor rooms and an attached marquee for up to 250 people. Additional details can be found at morneta.es.
Finca Alaiar: A wine and olive farm with Mediterranean flair
Finca Alaiar is located in the centre of the island near Sencelles, and hosts events such as weddings, corporate events or wine tastings. The family business makes many things possible so that guests feel at home. In the main house “Can Castell” there is a pretty courtyard with old stables, a stone oven, a hall on the ground floor and a wine cellar with a Romanesque vault. The “Planta Noble”, the more elegant part of the finca, is accessed via a garden with old fruit trees. Right next to it is “Can Ribes”, a farmhouse with a green area and a pool. Behind it stretches the grounds: 34 hectares of land, with over a thousand almond trees, carob trees and a panoramic view of the Tramuntana mountains. For more information, please visit alaiar.com.
Finca Son Mesquida Nou: A historic farm with a charming ambience
Finca Son Mesquida Nou is located near Algaida, in the heart of Mallorca, about 20 kilometres from the island’s capital Palma. The agricultural estate with an area of more than 500,000 square metres is surrounded by grain fields and is prepared for larger events of all kinds. You can find more insights here: sonmesquidanou.com.
Bodegas Ribas: Winery in the tenth generation
Another highlight was the visit to Bodegas Ribas. The family winery was founded in 1711. Pedro Ribas de Cabrera built the winery at the foot of the Sierra de Tramuntana, where the family still produces wines three centuries later. In 2004, the business was handed over to the tenth generation and opened to visitors for the first time. Bodegas Ribas offers guided tours and tastings. The group took part in a private wine tasting here. “We were guided through the tasting by Paul Sonderhoff, the wine man, in an informative and charming way – just great,” said Susanne. More information can be found at bodegaribas.com/en/inicio-german.
Susanne will also remember the buggy excursion on the island for a long time. Across the green countryside, past old and new fincas and a stop on the Puig de Randa with an ice cream in the Lluc monastery. “From up here you have a great view over the whole island,” she says.
Flying from one company location to the next: This can now be done even faster when travel managers book private jets and charter planes chartered by PAS via the joint company shuttle solution with Hahn Air. The company provides its distribution and ticketing solutions to many travel agencies and travel management companies.
Hahn Air’s “HR Shuttle Manager” provides simplified management for companies that operate their own company flights between company locations. The product now also includes charter flights from PAS. The two companies are thus bringing together a complete solution for company shuttles to the market.
Travel managers can book and manage the shuttle flights via the GDS (Global Distribution) system. Under the ticket code “HR”, the PAS charter flights appear in the GDS and can be issued as Hahn Air HR-169 tickets. The existing reservation and ticketing processes apply to all flights.
In addition, travel managers have access to online check-in and waiting lists. Detailed sales and billing reports are also available at the end of the month.

For ten years, we have been bringing private travelers, business professionals and groups to their destinations with chartered aircraft. We wanted to celebrate this anniversary by inviting our partners to an exclusive dinner party at PANORAMAPUNKT above the rooftops of Berlin on March 8th, 2023.
A ten-year anniversary is an important milestone birthday for PAS. We see this special occasion as proof of our ongoing success, which would not have been possible without our partners. Therefore, we invited our companions to celebrate with us to toast the past and next ten years.
Professional Aviation Solutions was founded in 2013 by Frankfurt-based Skylink Holding Germany. Today, the company is based in Bergisch Gladbach near Cologne and Düsseldorf airports. We have been organising private and business flights for individuals and groups all over the world for the past ten years. In doing so, we draw on a large fleet of private jets, helicopters and charter aircraft that can be booked around the clock. In this way, we have provided our customers with many unforgettable travel experiences. Because there is hardly a more comfortable, time-saving and private way to reach greater distances.
One of the reasons for the success of PAS is the professional customer service we offer. Our staff have years of experience in the aviation industry and are able to facilitate many customer requests and provide reliable travel planning. We guarantee prompt responses and quick solutions and provide support at all stages of the booking process: before, during and after the flight. Our quality management system has been certified according to ISO 9001 for five years. In December 2022, the award was reconfirmed.
For many years, PAS has also been committed to greater environmental responsibility in the aviation industry. We are committed to reducing emissions by giving preference to modern and energy-efficient aircraft. New and so far, the first German provider in the private flight segment, we offer the option for fueling with Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), if it is available at the departure airport. For all flights, whether with helicopters, turboprop aircraft, private jets or commercial aircraft, there is the option of CO2 offsetting. In addition, we support environmentally sustainable projects in the destinations where we are active.
At the end of 2022, we were certified for the first time according to the environmental management standard ISO 14001. The auditors praised us for the ecological aspects included in the procurement of our products and services.
We have also built a strong online presence that makes it easy for customers to choose their charter aircraft and services and to contact us directly.
We have already informed our partners by email about the dinner party on March 8th, 2023 at 7pm at PANORAMAPUNKT in Berlin. The location is on the 24th and 25th floor of the Kollhoff Tower at Potsdamer Platz 1. The party was held together with Aircontact from Oslo.
Bergisch Gladbach, 26 April 2022. PAS – Professional Aviation Solutions GmbH has announced a partnership with Hahn Air to offer a comprehensive solution for corporate shuttles. Hahn Air’s HR-Shuttle Manager product provides companies who run their own corporate flights between company locations with a simplified management process. With PAS adding individually tailored charter flights to the package, the two companies cater to all corporate shuttle needs.
As a result of the cooperation, the corporations’ Travel Management Companies (TMCs) can now book and manage tailored corporate shuttle flights organised by PAS in the Global Distribution System (GDS).

Bergisch Gladbach, 16th of January 2023. The charter provider PAS has been certified according to the globally recognised environmental management standard ISO 14001 for the first time. The auditors particularly emphasised the ecological aspects in the procurement of products and services.
The company spent ten months working towards the certificate. The PAS team in Bergisch Gladbach developed its own environmental management system for the ISO award, with which it can achieve and improve its environmental goals.
“We are aware that emissions and resources on air travel are an important indicator for the environmental balance. We want to reduce these step by step,” says Managing Director Birte Kipke. On the one hand, by only working with suppliers and service providers who comply with environmental requirements. On the other hand, by informing customers about the environmental balance of the products and offering compensation. Since mid-2022, all flight offers automatically receive two prices: one with and one without CO2 compensation.
SAF: First broker with sustainable aviation fuel
New and so far unique in the private flight segment, PAS also offers additional refuelling with Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), if available at the departure airport. The fuel is not based on fossil fuels, but on biomass or fatty plants. “Although SAF is not yet available nationwide, sustainable fuel is already a pioneering ray of hope for our industry,” says Kipke.
In order to be certified, the daily office routine must also be designed sustainably. PAS limits its paper consumption as much as possible, uses green electricity in the office and at trade fairs, and is supported by an environmental management officer.
Environmental standard complements existing quality standard
In addition to the new ISO 14001 standard, the charter provider has already been certified with its quality management system according to ISO 9001 for five years. In December, the award was confirmed again. PAS quality management covers all stages of the flight journey: Contact history, quotation generation, booking, flight briefing, supplier evaluation and customer feedback.
