Business Aviation Asia (BAA) and Luxaviation have celebrated the success of their alliance one year on from joining forces.
The strategic partnership, which was announced in April 2017, combined their resources to create a fleet of more than 270 aircraft and 50 helicopters, in addition to 1,700 employees around the world.
The alliance has helped both partners expand and enhance their customer offerings. In 2018, the strategic alliance will further extend the all-round collaboration into different areas, such as flight crews, FBO usage, MRO procurement, charter services, IT infrastructure and staff exchange programs.
This is demonstrated through Luxaviation’s recent announcement that is has collaborated with Paragon Aviation Group, creating a network of 53 FBOs globally.
Luxaviation also recently unveiled the opening of an additional AOC in San Marino. The new AOC gives business jet and helicopter owners a further solution for aircraft registration, asset management and commercial operation. The conclusion of the San Marino certification means customers now have 15 AOCs available to accommodate their specific needs.
BAA opened its new AOC at its Shenzhen, China, headquarters in January 2018. The AOC is the command center of business solution and flight operation, and offers services such as tickets and hotel booking, visas, flight scheduling and maintenance control.
Patrick Hansen, CEO of Luxaviation Group, said, “Our partnership with BAA has proved a great success. With our combined expertise, we are delivering premium services across charter, FBO, maintenance, aircraft management and aircraft transactions stretching from Europe, Asia, Australasia, Africa and the Middle East, to the Caribbean and Latin America”.
Zhu Yimin, president of CMIG Aviation, which fully owns BAA, added, “It’s a highly complementary service offering that has undoubtedly enhanced our client’s international traveling experience.
“We will be extending cooperation with Luxaviation in the next 12 months to ensure that we continue to stay ahead, anticipating our customers’ needs and delivering best-in-class services.”
