New business unit Jetcraft Asia to best serve clients by blending
industry expertise with regional market knowledge
RALEIGH, NC, Feb. 28, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Jetcraft Corporation, a
provider of business aircraft sales, acquisitions, trading and
brokerage services, today announced the opening of a new office in Hong
Kong, China, 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 Corporation.
"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 Mr. 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 Mr.
