Win Air launches


Win Air announces a string of firsts in Taiwanese aviation market.

Win Air will launch Taiwan’s first business jet charter and aircraft management service on 29 October operating three Gulfstream aircraft.

It will operate one GIV one G450 and one G550. The GIV and G450 are both US registered. The G550 is the first business jet registered in Taiwan.

“This new service will provide increased mobility for Taiwanese executives and for others in the region and around the world,” said Win Air President David Fei. “Our airplanes will carry them to all continents, most of them non-stop. And we will provide this service from the most convenient location for business in Taiwan.”

Win Air has also ordered a Gulfstream G650 which is due to be delivered in 2014.

“It would be an understatement to say that we are excited to be able to offer the G650 to the business community. We are thrilled,” said Fei. “We will be able to save executives up to an hour versus any other business jet flying on routes to Europe and America. This airplane will bring our clients the ultimate in high quality service.”

Win Air is located at Taipei’s downtown Taipei Songshan International Airport. “We are fortunate that the government recognizes business aviation as an important part of the transportation mix and valuable to the growth of Taiwan’s global business activities,” said Fei. It expects to have a dedicated FBO facility in operation by the end of 2011.

“Mr Fei and his team are pioneers,” said Roger Sperry, Gulfstream regional senior vice president, sales, South America and Far East. “Asian businesses increasingly need this kind of service and Win Air brings together an experienced team to provide the highest level of service and safety.”
