VistaJet (Stand No. 524) has embarked on an ambitious growth plan that could see it operating a fleet of almost 100 business jets by 2012. The Zurich, Switzerland-based group recently has completed the acquisition of Bombardier’s Skyjet International block charter program and is now running this in tandem with its new Flight Solutions leaseback program for aircraft owners.

ExecuJet Aviation and Hawker Pacific have begun operating the new Skypark FBO at Kuala Lumpur’s Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport. Malaysian deputy Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak officially inaugurated the new facility on August 7.
VistaJet has embarked on an ambitious growth plan that could see it operating a fleet of almost 100 business jets by 2012. The Zurich, Switzerland-based group has completed the acquisition of Bombardier’s Skyjet International block charter program, which it is running in tandem with its new Flight Solutions leaseback program for aircraft owners.
ExecuJet Aviation and Hawker Pacific today officially opened their new joint-venture Skypark FBO at Kuala Lumpur Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Malaysia. The development is part of the wider $91 billion Skypark Subang project to transform the former Subang International Airport–Kuala Lumpur’s main airport until the opening of Kuala Lumpur International Airport in 1998–into a business aviation gateway.
Switzerland’s VistaJet (Booth No. 483) didn’t have to travel far for its appearance at EBACE this year, but it seems just as comfortable projecting a presence half-way around the world, where it has just agreed to establish a Southeast Asian regional headquarters at SkyPark Subang outside Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
At face value, there has never been a better time to be in the international FBO business. With North America a mature marketplace, the lion’s share of growth in business aircraft fleets and flying activity is found in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
AB139, A109 Power and A109 LOH operators in the Far East now have a new maintenance option. AgustaWestland has appointed DRB-Hicom subsidiary Deftech an authorized service center for the region.
