Jetcraft opens new Hong Kong office
Jetcraft Asia opens to serve growing market for new and pre-owned aircraft
Jetcraft Corporation announced
the opening of a new office in Hong
under the Jetcraft Asia banner.
“We believe that
this is the right time to establish a permanent presence in Asia,”
says Chad Anderson, president, Jetcraft
“While we have been active
in the region for years, we have done so without a formal presence. Based on
the projected growth of the Asian – and particularly the Chinese – market, we
are now directly serving the region. By blending our proven approach to
business aircraft sales with a team of Hong Kong-based industry professionals,
we believe that Jetcraft Asia will offer buyers and sellers superior market
intelligence and an in-depth understanding of regional business and regulatory
issues. Speaking for the entire Jetcraft team, we are very excited about this
latest step in our company’s growth and evolution,” adds Chad Anderson.
“From our new office in Hong
Kong, we will be able to best represent client interests in Asia,”
continues Jahid Fazal-Karim, co-owner and board member, Jetcraft Corporation.
“Traditionally, the Asian
market has favored new business aircraft. However, we predict a growing market
for pre-owned aircraft, particularly in China, within the next five years.
Locally-registered aircraft are likely to remain in China since transferring
registration in-country is generally simpler than importing and registering
aircraft. Given Jetcraft’s commitment to offer comprehensive services in
multiple markets with consistent quality, establishing a permanent presence in Asia was the next logical step for us. Jetcraft Asia will
leverage regional market knowledge and our proven approach to remarketing
aircraft in order to tailor solutions for our clients globally, both within the
region and from elsewhere – whether selling into or buying from Asia,” concludes Jahid Fazal-Karim.
