Jet Aviation’s Hong Kong maintenance facility has been approved for warranty service on the Gulfstream G650, as well as the G450 and G550.

Switzerland-based Jet Aviation Management (Booth P326) announced here at ABACE 2014 in Shanghai that it is adding two Gulfstream G450s and a new Gulfstream G550 to its managed fleet in Asia, bringing to 30 the number of aircraft it operates in the region.

The G550 and one of the G450s will be based in Hong Kong and maintained by the company’s Hong Kong maintenance facility, a Gulfstream Authorized Warranty Service Center for G450/G550/G650 aircraft. Delivery of the aircraft is expected by the end of next month.

“We strive to uphold the highest service standards while ensuring a positive customer experience,” said Iris Riesen, managing director of Jet Aviation’s Hong Kong aircraft management and charter division. “Our customers trust in the ability and professionalism of our team, and we are very pleased to expand our fleet.”

Jet Aviation said it is quickly expanding its aircraft management and charter division in Asia in response to growing demand for services in the area. The company has been operating in Asia since opening a maintenance facility and FBO in Singapore in 1995, and established Jet Aviation Hong Kong in 2008 to provide scheduled and unscheduled line maintenance, inspection and defects rectifications, and AOG (aircraft on ground) support.
