Welcome to Eccelsa Aviation
FBO Services.

Eccelsa Aviation operates a dedicated private and executive aviation terminal of about 5,000 square metres at Olbia Costa Smeralda Airport. Opened in summer 2009, the building features the functionality of a well-structured FBO terminal combined with original and harmonious architectural characteristics reminiscent of elegant private aviator clubs. The deployment of local building materials – like the San Giacomo yellowish stones – and the lush local vegetation serve to integrate what is architecturally conceived as an “undefined-space” to the local context.
