Jet Aviation is expanding its aircraft management and charter fleet in the EMEA and Asia regions with the addition of a Gulfstream G550. Based in Switzerland, the aircraft has been added to Jet Aviation’s air operator certificate and is available for worldwide charter.

Accommodating up to 12 passengers and a crew of three, the aircraft can link Switzerland to destinations such as Singapore, Tokyo, Johannesburg, Los Angeles, and Sao Paulo. “The G550 is the perfect choice for small groups or corporate travelers who wish to remain productive while traveling long distances,” said Claudio Peer, v-p of sales for Flight Services, EMEA and Asia.

As it expands its charter fleet, Jet Aviation (Chalet CD47) also has returned its attention to handling customer demonstration flights during the Singapore Airshow. Show organizer Experia Events named Jet Aviation as the exclusive handler for such flights. Noting this is the third time for Jet Aviation to handle the customer demonstration flights, Louis Leong, v-p of regional operations Asia and general manager of the company's MRO and FBO facility in Singapore, underscored the importance of the flights in enabling OEMs and operators to showcase their products.

“We have worked with Jet Aviation for many years and appreciate their seamless customer handling,” added Experia Events managing director Leck Chet Lam, saying it remained with Jet Aviation “based on their high industry standards and professionalism."
