Business aviation operator Execujet says it will add two more aircraft to its charter fleet and has plans for a third in the next few months as economic growth in Australasia fuels demand.
The company says a Bombardier Challenger 604 and Cessna Citation VII will be based in Sydney and serve destinations in Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
Execujet’s Australasian-managed fleet had grown from 10 to 18 aircraft over the past 12 months, according to Execujet Aviation Group vice president for Australasia Darren McGoldrick.
He says: “We also look forward to adding a Citation VII in the next few months, which will provide our customers a charter aircraft for short-range destinations.”
He claims the growth in the fleet is recognition by aircraft owners of the value and experience ExecuJet brings to the management of their aircraft.
McGoldrick says the outlook for business aviation in Asia is encouraging and notes that aircraft manufacturers are all predicting an increasing number of deliveries over the next two decades as well as introducing technological advancements and product innovation into the market.
He says this will encourage more people to consider owning business jets for the first time and that Execujet is well placed to serve this growing demand given its global presence and comprehensive expertise in aircraft operations: “ExecuJet’s core attraction in South-East Asia is our global presence,” he stresses.
“Not only are we expert in virtually all business aviation activities from management and chartering through to maintenance and completions, but we also operate around the world.
“Many of our clients own long- or ultra-long-range aircraft and have worldwide business interests. They want the reassurance of consistent service wherever they are with the same agreements, record-keeping and quality processes.”
