BAA Jet Management has taken delivery of its first managed Airbus, an A318 Elite narrowbody bizliner, making the Hong Kong-based company the first in Asia to operate the executive version of the A318 single-aisle airliner. The 18-passenger Elite is also the first A318 to be registered in the People’s Republic of China and is based in Shenzhen, where it is available for charter. In addition to providing aircraft charter and management services, BAA Jet offers flight support and aircraft sales and acquisition services. Besides the new A318 Elite, its current fleet consists of an ultra-long-range Gulfstream V, large-cabin G450 and a super-midsize G200. BAA Jet expects to add to that fleet three Airbus Corporate Jetliners and two VIP-configured A350 widebody twinjets.
