Chinese private aviation provider Sino Jet has partnered with the Sichuan Province Airport Group and Chengdu Shuangliu Airport to assist in the management and upgrade of its FBO. Chengdu is the major center for finance, transport, and communications in western China, and the companies look to build the airport into the region’s premier business aviation hub.
Sino Jet is Asia’s largest IS-BAO Stage 3-registered business jet operator, with more than 45 aircraft under management. According to airport statistics, its fleet accounted for approximately 20 percent of business jet operations at Shuangliu last year.
“We provide efficient, secure, and premium business aviation services to corporate clientele in the southwestern region of China,” said a company spokesperson, adding that it has been managing business jets at Shuangliu since 2017. “We are pleased to have this collaboration and aim to work together, not just technically but also culturally, to reach a common goal in creating a top-notch FBO operation in Chengdu.”
The deal is similar to one Sino Jet entered last year at Nanchang Changbei International Airport with Jiangxi Airport VIP Service Company. Under that partnership, a new FBO will be developed in an independent terminal building with exclusive jet parking facilities, and Sino Jet will provide ground-handling services, an advanced flight-operating system, and a highly personalized customer-service platform.
