Hong Kong-based private aircraft management provider Bellawings Jet Limited has selected Hong Kong Jet to provide maintenance services for its growing aircraft fleet, sealing the deal during a signing on Tuesday in Shanghai at ABACE 2015.
Hong Kong Jet, itself an IS-BAO level II aircraft operator with a fleet of 18 large-cabin business jets and bizliners, holds Part 145 maintenance approval from China, Macau, Cayman Islands, Bermuda and Hong Kong, and provides maintenance support for Boeing, Airbus, Gulfstream and Bombardier jets.
“We feel that our friends at Hong Kong Jet will give us what we want, which is a shared interest, a quality product and good maintenance AOG support, and even possibly commercial AOC support, which means charter backup if our aircraft do have a problem,” said Glen Reghenzani, Bellawings’ director of flight operations. He added that further relations between the companies could possibly lead to sharing of flight crews.
Formed in October 2014, and making its ABACE debut, Bellawings presently operates a pair of B-registered aircraft–a Gulfstream G550 and Bombardier Global 5000. According to Reghenzani, it expects to add up to another 20 aircraft to its roster by next year. The company currently has four flight-crew per aircraft.
The company has also established the Bellawings Club, an exclusive membership offering not limited to managed aircraft clients that provides personalized concierge services. In addition, it offers travel opportunities through its partnerships with luxury travel organizer Abercrombie and Kent and Hong Kong Airlines.
