Signum Aviation opens in China
Signum Aviation, the flight planning and operations support company is celebrating its fifth anniversary at the beginning of December and is expanding into the Chinese market. The Chester, UK-headquartered company provides complete trip-planning and operations support service to the corporate and business aviation sector and will be opening its brand new Beijing facility in the first quarter of 2013.
“Coinciding with our on-going expansion within the European market, we are extending into China with a sales and operations centre scheduled to commence operations early next year,” said Jonathan Gill, managing director. “Our research suggests there is a massive market in China, with almost infinite potential. The growth in China’s economy is boosting the requirement for private jet travel and ownership and we predict this will be followed by a substantial increase in demand for our services in this region.”
Gill anticipates the Chinese office will mirror the service it offers elsewhere, with attention to detail and personal service remaining a priority.
“Private jet travel continues to be a significant sector in the global aviation industry and we intend to support the continued demands with our very personalised service,” commented Gill.
Having begun in 2007 with just one client, Signum Aviation is now responsible for the handling of more than 7,000 flights per year, looking after aircraft ranging from Citation Mustangs to Global XRSs with projects ranging from short domestic flights to more complex projects. Signum recently planned and managed the operations side for moving three 747-400s from the Middle East to the USA for storage. “Our friendly and personal service has enabled us to establish and retain excellent relationships with clients who trust us with even the most complex of projects,” added Gill.
