Sonic Air, a new subsidiary of Hongkong Jet, has added an Aruba air operator certificate (AOC) as it prepares for its first operation since it was formed in March 2019. Sonic Air will begin charter flights with a single Boeing BBJ787-8 that seats 40 passengers.

“We picked Aruba not only because of the high standards, but also it's a registry that understands charter and business aviation well,” said Jiao Jian, HongKong Jet CEO. “It is an honor to get this AOC and marks a new beginning for our charter business.”

“Sonic Air earned the AOC and worked very hard for it,” said Edwin Kelly, DCA Aruba director general. “We are also proud that we are growing in this region.”

Jiao added that eventually he hopes to add other long-range aircraft from Gulfstream and Bombardier into HongKong Jet's growing fleet.
