DC Aviation expands its European network with Jet-Link buy-out
DC Aviation, Germany’s leading provider of private jet charter, has expanded its network with the purchase of Zurich-based Jet-Link. The acquisition increases the company’s market presence and supports the growth strategy of DC Aviation in both Western and Eastern Europe as well as in the Near East.
“We look forward to working closely with the Jet-Link team in the future. Jet-Link has been very successful in holding its own on the Swiss market for over two decades now, and has earned an outstanding reputation with both charter customers and aircraft owners. This expansion venture is in perfect harmony with the growth objectives of DC Aviation as well as the desire of the company to react to market requirements with the greatest possible flexibility”, states Michael Kuhn, CEO of DC Aviation.
Marc Ambrosius, CFO of DC Aviation and member of the Supervisory Board of Jet-Link Holding since 2012, highlights in particular the broad international base of the DC Aviation brand. “In addition to its joint venture in Dubai, this acquisition has enabled DC Aviation to also establish itself in the important Zurich financial center, and the company is now in a position to offer its international customers the additional option of a Swiss home base.“
“With quality standards of the highest level, the two companies complement each other perfectly. Of course, a solid corporate strategy must also include a focus on further development. Together with DC Aviation, we can reach the goals we have set and perfectly project our core values of “Made in Germany” and “Swiss Precision” on our target markets”, adds Hanspeter Candrian, founder and CEO of Jet-Link.
