Metrojet, the Hong Kong operator and maintenance company, has received its first Boeing Business Jet. It is being managed on behalf of a private owner but will be available for charter.
Metrojet advised the aircraft owner on how to buy and register the jet. It also arranged insurance, certification and managed the delivery. The company will also provide flight attendants and catering for the jet.
“Metrojet will register this BBJ under our AOC charter operation, and the aircraft will be available for charter by the end of the year,” Lester Ingram, COO of Metrojet.
The company, which is owned by Hong Kong’s Kadoorie Group, manages over 20 corporate aircraft including five Gulfstream G550s, a Global 500, a Global Express and one G450. It also owns a business jet and helicopter repair workshop.
