Asia Jet Partners Malaysia has become the sole commercially registered private jet operator in Malaysia with the recent awards of a 9M commercial air operating certificate (AOC) from the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia and an air services permit (ASP) from the Malaysian Aviation Commission, the Kuala Lumpur-based provider said this week at the Singapore Airshow.
The approvals come as Asia Jet Partners prepares to add a second Bombardier Global 5000 to its fleet this spring, joining its sibling that is based at Subang Sultan Abdul Aziz Shan Airport. “As we enter our fifth year and under new ownership, our investors are very supportive of growing our charter and managed fleet and bolstering our maintenance capability,” said Asia Jet Partners Malaysia CEO Stutijn van Till.
As it expands its fleet, the operator further is laying plans to move into a new hangar facility as part of a Subang Airport redevelopment masterplan and to increase its service offerings. “We are looking to establish a suite of business aviation services in Malaysia that will rival the excellent facilities at Seletar in Singapore,” said van Till. “Mature Southeast Asia business hubs such as Hong Kong and Singapore are becoming congested and expensive. Our goal is to deliver a first-class experience for private jet companies coming into Subang, supported by modern facilities and excellent infrastructure.”
