Deer Jet, China’s largest aviation services provider, has become the first FBO operator in the Asia-Pacific region to join the Air Elite Network. By joining the World Fuel Services-sponsored group, Deer Jet will begin accepting the Avcard at eight of its FBOs in mainland China, making them part of a network of 7,600 locations to welcome the aviation credit card.
“More than a new milestone addition, by accepting Avcard, Deer Jet’s FBOs are ensuring that clients receive efficient services at every step of the air travel experience, making it easier for clients to charge fuel, maintenance, charters, catering, flight training and many other aviation services at [our] FBOs,” said Deer Jet chairman and CEO Zhang Peng. “Once again Deer Jet is promoting the upgrading and global competitiveness of China’s business aviation.”
The company also recently received the NBAA Corporate Business Flying Award for 21 years of accident-free flying. According to NBAA records, Deer Jet has amassed nearly 260,000 hours of flying without an accident involving damage to property or injury to people.
