PhilJets continues rapid growth by adding more assets to already growing fleet to cater to increased demand for service
Posted by Ryan Mason
In line with its plans of holding a stronger position in the aviation industry in Asia, PhilJets Group confirmed during the Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (ABACE) in Shangahai this week that the company would be accepting delivery of its latest addition of Bell 407 GXP Helicopter to its fleet this month. In addition, PhilJets also expects the arrival of two Airbus H130 and one H145 later this year – bringing the boutique aviation group’s aircraft lineup to reach ten Helicopters and two Business Jets by end of the 2017.
PhilJets’ first participation to the ABACE marks its ambition to develop closer ties within the Chinese market, explaining further its visions of strengthening its business relationship with China and North Asian Business Aviation communities. The company became a member of ASBAA in 2015 and has been on a fast-paced growth since adding eight brand new aircraft to its fleet within a twelve month period.
The new aircraft are expected to be available to the PhilJets’ clientele in the second-half of the year – the company forecasting reaching full capacity by 2018. Geoffroy Cahen, Head of Sales & Marketing, explains: “Business Aviation has been growing in the Philippines and PhilJets has been a strong advocate. Now that the Philippines and China are getting much closer, we believe PhilJets is well positioned to provide Chinese businessmen and business travelers, the most suitable aviation services for their requirements”.
Kisha Roxas, Marketing and Communications Manager added “We are starting in the community and we shall be more involved, now that we reach a size critical enough to play an active role in the Business Aviation scene in Asia Pacific. We are looking for more partnerships”. With the brand new Airbus, Bell, Bombardier and Cessna aircraft on the frontline, PhilJets is confident and well-positioned to cover extensive market segments from VIP charters to high net worth tourists for both regional and international travelers.
