...And Expands Its Flexjet Pacific Rim Network
While one arm of Bombardier Aerospace concentrates on building and certificating its airplanes, another arm is hard at work making sure they get flown, profitably. The company recently announced it has selected Global Wings Inc. of Tokyo, Japan, as a new operator for its growing Bombardier Flexjet Asia-Pacific business jet charter network. Global Wings Inc. will offer customers access to a new Learjet 45 XR the Japan-based company will begin operating this spring. Judith Moreton, managing director, Bombardier Flexjet International, observed: "Demand for business aviation in Asia continues to grow and evolve, and this new association reflects our ongoing commitment to solidify our program and better serve charter users."
Bombardier Flexjet Asia-Pacific has recorded steady growth since beginning operations in February 2002, the company said. Other operators in the Bombardier Flexjet Asia-Pacific network include China-based Rainbow Jet Co. Ltd., Macau-based Jet Asia Ltd., Subic International Air Charter Inc. of the Philippines, Singapore-based Pacific Flight Services and ExecuJet Australia. All charter operators in the network are certified by Wyvern International to ensure operational and safety standards.
