Business aviation operator, Sino Jet, has opened a new base in Guangzhou, China, following the government’s US$88bn investment in the Greater Bay Area of the country.
The Greater Bay Area is a city cluster comprising two special administrative regions, Hong Kong and Macau, and nine cities: Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Foshan, Zhongshan, Dongguan, Zhaoqing, Jiangmen and Huizhou. It has been highlighted as a region for economic growth and development.
Guangzhou is the newest office to be opened by Sino Jet and adds to its existing bases in Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai. The hub will be managed by Frank De, CEO of Sino Jet Hong Kong and member of the board of governors at Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA).
Jenny Lau, president of the Sino Jet Group and chairperson of AsBAA, said, “The Belt and Road Initiative offers the Greater Bay Area opportunities for development, while the Greater Bay Area construction scheme put forward by the government proposes the most significant opportunities in the history of the industry in this region.
“The Sino Jet Shanghai office has been well received in East China following its inauguration in 2017 and we are confident about the growth of the industry in the region. Sino Jet and its group of companies are now in a period of expansion and we hope to leverage these new opportunities to drive the businesses and the wider industry forward.”
