Turkmen Air, based at Ataturk airport in Istanbul and owned by supervision and flight support provider Bilen Air Services, has changed its name to JetGlobe in order to reflect its increasingly international client base. In its first 18 months of operation, the company has expanded the size of its managed fleet from one aircraft to six.

“We decided to change our brand due to the significant increase in the presence of our business globally,” states Bilen's corporate business director Ayca Kocabas. “This is an exciting time for us. The name JetGlobe is more dynamic and all of the team is aiming to develop our services for new and existing customers. It has been a welcome new year present for the company.”

JetGlobe offers aircraft manage-ment and charter services but is promoting itself as a full aviation services provider, able to offer flight planning and supervision through its parent company Bilen.

Kocabas continues: “The Turkish business aviation market has overcome the political pessimism here that was a feature of last year, and has started a period of growth. Demand for our aircraft has been growing. We currently operate six business jets and five of them are based at Ataturk: a Learjet 60XR, a Falcon 2000, two Challenger 604s and a Global Express. A recently added second LR60XR is based at Esenboga airport in Ankara.”
