Los Angeles-based Jet Edge (Booth 4223) has added six aircraft to its managed-jet fleet, including two Gulfstream G650s, a G550, a GIVSP, a GIV and a Bombardier Global 6000. It expects to add an additional G550 and Global 6000 next year, which will bring its one-year new and used sales figures north of the $600 million mark. The company now has more than 40 large-cabin jets under management around the globe.
With a larger fleet comes more personnel and locations. Jet Edge has hired managers into flight operations and maintenance departments, enhanced its safety management systems and introduced flight operational quality assurance (FOQA) and aviation safety action plan (ASAP) programs. It has also received IS-BAO Stage II certification.
Finally, the company announced three additional operating bases: Tokyo; Miami, and Atlanta. This comes on the heels of opening its base at Narita, Japan.
“We will continue to focus our efforts on the global, long-range-aircraft, management model in the U.S. and Asia,” said Bill Papariella, president and CEO of Jet Edge.
