Jet Aviation has been awarded the 2017 Icons of Aviation (IOA) Asia Award for Best MRO (Singapore / Hong Kong). The annual Icons of Aviation Asia Awards are hosted by the Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA) to recognize aviation’s best in the region, while promoting corporate social responsibility in aviation. 

The AsBAA Icons of Aviation (IOA) awards commend the best within the industry and acknowledge their vital support of the business aviation market in Asia. AsBAA hosted 330 VIPs, media and guests at its annual industry awards charity gala dinner in Hong Kong on November 10, 2017. The event further served as a fundraiser for Orbis, the Flying Eye Hospital — raising more than US$26,000 for the non-profit NGO committed to treating preventable blindness in developing countries.

“It’s a great honor to have the quality of our MRO network acknowledged by the industry,” said John Riggir, vice president and general manager at Jet Aviation Singapore. “I couldn’t be prouder of our teams of professionals who made this achievement possible through their unwavering commitment to safety and service excellence. We are all equally delighted to support the good and laudable work of Orbis, which uses aviation to deliver the instruments that facilitate the miracle of sight.”

Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA) is a non-profit association established to enhance Business Aviation access, regulation, safety, knowledge, training, public awareness and contribution to the economy. As a member of the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC), it represents more than 80 operators, aircraft manufacturers, service providers and business aviation users based in Asia and around the world.
