Jet Aviation creates new Flight Services office in Singapore
Jet Aviation, which recently completed the integration of Hawker Pacific’s Aircraft Management business, is creating a Flight Services location for Jet in Singapore
The new Singapore branch office will operate as Jet Aviation Business Jets Singapore (JBJS) and report to Jet Aviation Business Jets Hong Kong (JBJH). It will provide aircraft management, flight support and CAMO services to Southeast Asian-based clients.
Jure Lenarcic, (pictured here) who was responsible for the former Hawker Pacific business, will continue to spearhead the local operation 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.
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.”
