Gulfstream takes full range of business jets to Singapore
Gulfstream shows its commitment to region by bringing all its current range of executive jets to the Singapore Air Show.
Gulfstream will bring its full-range of aircraft to the Singapore Airshow 2014, including the Gulfstream G650, G550, G450, G280 and G150 at the show.
“Gulfstream aircraft represent the largest share of the large-cabin aircraft market in the Asia-Pacific region with nearly 50 per cent of all customers choosing our aircraft,” said Scott Neal, senior vice president, worldwide sales and marketing, Gulfstream.
“In Singapore alone, Gulfstream has 72 pe rcent of the large-cabin market, a clear indication of how well our aircraft support customer requirements. We continue to focus on the growing Gulfstream fleet and increasing the service options available to operators stationed in and passing through Asia,” added Neal.
Gulfstream’s Asia-Pacific fleet has more than tripled between 2008 and 2013, from 74 aircraft to more than 230. Nearly 80 of those are located in the area that includes Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, India, Pakistan, Australia and New Zealand.
Gulfstream has two factory-authorised service centres in the region, Jet Aviation Singapore and Jet Aviation Hong Kong. Other facilities include Metrojet in Hong Kong, ExecuJet in Melbourne and Sydney, JAMCO in Sendai and Air Works in Mumbai.
Later this year, Jet Aviation Singapore is expected to open a new maintenance hangar alongside its current maintenance and FBO operation at Seletar Airport.
“The expansion of product support capabilities in Singapore will allow us to meet increased demand in the region,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream Product Support. “The larger Jet Aviation facility will be able to accommodate up to five more G650s, which will give our operators in Asia more accessibility to our parts and services.”
