Hawker Pacific announces sales brokerage arm

Hawker Pacific has announced the launch of an Aircraft Sales and Acquisitions business that will support the rising demand for long-range business aviation in the Asia-Pacific region.

The new brokerage arm is located at Hawker Pacific’s facility at Seletar Aerospace Park in Singapore and headed up by Paul van der Blom, director aircraft sales and acquisition services, recently appointed by Hawker Pacific to focus on the company’s business aircraft trading presence in Asia.

Already our clients have recognized there is real value with this integrated approach and working with a trusted partner. Aircraft sales is already a very active part of our business and this service builds on this whilst leveraging on our other strengths.

“Paul van der Blom is a welcome addition to the team and brings a number of strengths that leverage Hawker Pacific’s existing capabilities The company is already a leader in aircraft maintenance and support, logistics and FBO services and, while the company has been active in brokerage for a long time, we now have the added benefit of a specific brokerage arm targeting the long range, large cabin business aircraft segment. Hawker Pacific’s ultimate objective is to tick every box when it comes to the life of an aircraft and the needs of our of our customer.”

The company has also announced the appointment of Carrie Yu to brokerage department, where her primary focus will be on nurturing and growing Hawker Pacific’s focus on the Chinese business and executive markets.
