Hong Kong / April 14, 2014 – Jet Aviation is adding two Hong Kong-based Gulfstream G650ER aircraft to its managed fleet in EMEA and Asia, bringing the total of G650 aircraft in its regional fleet up to seven. Delivery of the aircraft is expected by the end of May 2015.
The two new G650ER aircraft represent the company’s 6th and 7th G650 aircraft in its EMEA and Asia fleet, four of which are based in Asia. Both of the new G650ER aircraft are based in Hong Kong and will be maintained by Jet Aviation’s Hong Kong maintenance facility — a Gulfstream Factory Authorized Warranty Service Center for G450/G550/G650 aircraft. They will be delivered to the company at the end of May 2015.
“Our customers value our professional expertise and trust us to manage their day-to-day flight operations efficiently and effectively,” says Iris Riesen, managing director of Jet Aviation’s aircraft management and charter division in Hong Kong. “As an experienced private G650 operator, we have already managed 950 landings and accumulated almost 3,000 flight hours with our fleet of G650 aircraft. We are delighted to expand our fleet to give peace of mind to owners and operators of business aircraft.” Available services at Jet Aviation's 24/7 aircraft management and charter operation in Hong Kong include the full range of aircraft management and flight support services, as well as charter services.
Jet Aviation has been operating in Asia since opening its maintenance and FBO facility in Singapore in 1995. In 2001, Jet Aviation established an office in Hong Kong to provide aircraft management and charter services, now managing a fleet of 28 aircraft. In 2008, it established Jet Aviation Hong Kong to provide scheduled and unscheduled line maintenance, inspections and defect rectifications as well as AOG support. To support the region’s growing demand for business aviation services, the company tripled its capacity in Singapore when it began operating from a new state-of-the-art 7,500 square meter hangar facility in May 2014.gement and charter divisions jointly operate a fleet of more than 250 aircraft.
