ExecuJet Africa is celebrating its prestigious status as operator of the first ever jet to land at St Helena Airport (HLE) in the South Atlantic Ocean.
ExecuJet Aviation Group is predicting an acceleration in its growth in Australasia, as clients in the region increasingly turn to support organisations with global experience and scale.
Speaking today at Avalon 2015, the Australian International Airshow and Aerospace & Defence Exposition, Darren McGoldrick, Vice President Australasia, ExecuJet Aviation Group, said: “The macro outlook for business aviation in Asia is encouraging, with all OEMs predicting rising deliveries across the region in the next two decades. We believe the current high levels of product innovation from aircraft manufacturers will only support that trend, encouraging more people to become business jet owners for the first time.”
“This development is in turn driving a maturing of the business aviation services market. In the past year alone, ExecuJet’s managed fleet in Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia has grown by 10 aircraft to a total of 18, and we are experiencing a steady increase in enquiries. Clients typically have high service expectations and are seeking out businesses like ExecuJet that have global scale, the resources to invest in quality processes and which offer comprehensive expertise in aircraft operations.”
ExecuJet is scaling up its aircraft management operations to meet this growing demand. From a new base in Singapore, the group has established a dedicated team to lead business development across South East Asia and serve its growing client base.
McGoldrick continued: “ExecuJet’s core attraction in South East Asia is our global presence. Not only are we expert in virtually all business aviation activities, from management and chartering through to maintenance and completions, but we operate around the world. Many of our clients own long- or ultra-long-range aircraft and have worldwide business interests. They want the reassurance of consistent service wherever they are, with the same agreements, record-keeping and quality processes. With our wholly owned operations in key locations around the globe, ExecuJet is superbly placed to meet this demand.”
