Business Aviation Asia (BAA), based in the Asia-Pacific region, has announced a strategic alliance with the Luxaviation Group, one of the biggest worldwide private aviation operators. The arrangement will see BAA provide high-level aircraft management services for business jet owners in the Greater China region (Chinese mainland, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan), working in partnership with Luxaviation.
It is thought that BAA will integrate the premium global infrastructure and service culture of Luxaviation, providing charter, FBO, maintenance, aircraft management and transactions with operations in Europe, Asia, Australasia, Africa, the Middle East, the Caribbean and Latin America. BAA is owned by CMIG Aviation, part of the China Minsheng Investment Group.
Zhu Yimin, president of CMIG Aviation, said, “This new strategic partnership in aviation services will undoubtedly help play a highly important role in the further growth and development of China’s business aviation market. The agreement will bring the combined private and business aviation expertise of East and West into one unified service offering, with the kindred companies able to support and complement each other’s operations across Europe and Asia.”
Patrick Hansen, CEO of Luxaviation Group, added, “We are proud to have the opportunity to deliver our expertise to the fast-growing Asian and specifically the Chinese business jet market, and support BAA to further improve its client services in this region.”
