In parallel with its commitment to keep business moving, Sino Jet has also invested significant resources into protecting and supporting communities in the region. For example, the company donated a Multifunction Mobile Medical Station to the Government in Hubei Province, China, to provide an emergency medical centre and quarantine “ward” to support those with urgent medical needs that may be unable to access standard medical care or hospitalisation.
In line with its commitment to continue investing in the development of business and general aviation in Greater China, in quarter three, Sino Jet expanded into Jiangxi and Hainan. It entered a strategic partnership with Jiangxi Airport VIP Service Company to open the first FBO (fixed base operator) at Nanchang Changbei International Airport. The strategic expansion followed a dramatic increase in demand for business aviation in the region combined with a projected 20% year-on-year growth over three years.
Sino Jet’s mainland China development strategy is to support governments in their enhancement of second and third-tier cities. The company believes that an investment into infrastructure, paired with increasing demand for business aviation, and burgeoning industry will lead to greater integration of these cities into global value chains. Under this strategy, Sino Jet became the first business jet operator to collaborate with the Hainan government. The partnership is in place to support the master plan for the Hainan Free Trade Port (Hainan FTP Plan), which aims to optimise business jet management resources and operation systems in Hainan, southern China.
As the year draws to a close, Sino Jet remains focused on its mission to keep business safely moving forward. A spokesperson said, “Sino Jet has redefined the “new normal” for its passengers and is now ready to reinvent the business aviation business models for a more connected, secured, stable, and flexible future”.
