Jet Aviation creates new Flight Services office in SingaporeApril 16, 2019
Jet Aviation has recently completed the integration of Hawker Pacific's Aircraft Management business, creating a Flight Services location for Jet in Singapore effective immediately. The new Singapore branch office will operate as Jet Aviation Business Jets Singapore (JBJS) and report to Jet Aviation Business Jets Hong Kong (JBJH).
Jet Aviation Business Jets Singapore will provide Aircraft Management, Flight Support and CAMO services to Southeast Asian-based clients through its new Flight Services location in Singapore. At present, the company manages five aircraft while providing Flight Support and CAMO services to eight additional aircraft. It will receive operational support from Jet Aviation’s aircraft management and charter operation in Hong Kong, as needed. Jure Lenarcic, who was responsible for the former Hawker Pacific business, will continue to spearhead the local operation in Singapore.
“We are delighted to expand our global reach with this new operations center in Singapore,” said Norbert Ehrich, Jet Aviation’s VP and GM of Flight Services EMEA and Asia. “This office offers aircraft owners and operators in Southeast Asia local access to required management and flight support services. It is an excellent location for our customers and a great opportunity for Jet Aviation to grow its business in the region."
Daniel Helfenstein, Director of Key Accounts and Deputy Managing Director of the company’s aircraft management operation in Hong Kong, noted growing interest in large aircraft within the region. “Jet Aviation recently added an Airbus A330-200 to its managed fleet in Asia, bringing the regional fleet up to 34 aircraft. We see a definite trend towards large, long-range business jets and are very proud to be the operator of such an aircraft.”
