The ASA Group opens offices in Indonesia and Malaysia

The ASA Group, one of Asia’s premier VIP aviation services provider, has expanded its operations in Asia with the opening of offices in Indonesia and Malaysia.

Joe Wilson, ASA’s CEO, commented, “We have seen an enormous interest in these two countries as investors turn their attention to mining and commodities. There is a great deal of business aviation travel to and from each country and it was logical to have a presence there.”

To support the expansion the firm has appointed Tom Mulvey as director of operations. He will be based in Hong Kong and support the regional operations on security and flight operations. Julie Ambrose has duly been promoted to general manager for ASA Thailand with Talita Miotto supporting her regionally.

ASA continues to go from strength to strength in China, where it opened at Shanghai’s Hongquaio Airport last year. Wilson added, “China is such an important region for business aviation, and we are delighted to see the success of both ABACE and the FBO here as China continues to grow. We are pleased to be part of such an exciting era.”

Founding chairman Simon Wagstaff added, “These developments are exciting and I am particularly pleased how quickly Joe and Julie have settled in to their new roles. I’d like to welcome Tom on board.”
