Asian Sky Group (ASG), a business aviation consulting firm and charter services provider, and ÀNI, a collection of private resorts, are partnering to provide travellers with the possibility of a private holiday, from their own jet to their own resort.
Groups of up to 30 guests can be accommodated across ÀNI's collection: ÀNI Anguilla, ÀNI Dominican Republic, ÀNI Sri Lanka and ÀNI Thailand. Each resort comes with a dedicated culinary team, mixologist curated bars, wellness facilities and an array of local tailored experiences and excursions. There is also complimentary daily treatment at the spa, a children's programme, cooking classes and tennis lessons. ASG's is offering its charter services and provides a wide range of independent services for both fixed and rotary-wing aircraft.
The collaboration between the two companies provides ÀNI guests with a minimum of five per cent discount on the flight on their first trip booked through ASG, in addition to redeemable credit. “Our clients are always looking for out of this world holiday options, off the beaten trail so to speak where, even more so these days, friends and family can have a place exclusively to themselves," says Jeffrey C. Lowe, CEO of ASG. “With ÀNI's private resorts we know we will achieve all this, which gives our clients the same peace of mind they have when traveling with us.”
In other news, ASG has entered into an exclusive regional partnership with the aviation division of Comlux Group, headquartered in Switzerland. ASG will act as the exclusive charter representative of Comlux in the Asia-Pacific region for three long-range, wide-body aircraft managed and operated by Comlux.
“We're proud to partner with Comlux on the marketing of its large VIP aircraft in the Asia-Pacific region: the ACJ318 Elite; SkyLady, a 767BBJ; and Crystal Skye, a 777BBJ,” says Lowe. “While this is an unusual time we're facing, we've seen an uptick in demand for charter, as clients wish to fly in a safe, secure and private environment. Now, as travel restrictions begin to ease, our clients are looking to satisfy their pent up travel needs. I'm confident that through ASG's extensive network and various platforms we'll be effective in promoting and ultimately arranging charters on these well-designed and spacious aircraft.”
Andrea Zanetto, CEO Comlux Aviation, adds: “ASG and Comlux have a long-lasting relationship in the industry, and we've had the opportunity to work with Jeff and his team several times in the past. I am extremely pleased to consolidate our collaboration with this exclusive partnership, aiming at developing our charter business and customer base in the Asia Pacific region. I am confident that the combination of the high-end features of our VIP fleet and the Comlux ‘world-class Swiss-made’ level of service on board will be successful with the Asian clientele.”
The Philippines-based ACJ318 Elite boasts a stylish cabin with a dining conference area, a wide open lounge with L shape divan and a private suite at the rear, which can be converted to a bedroom. With up to 4,000nm of range, the ACJ318 Elite can fly up to 18 passengers comfortably from Hong Kong to Brisbane and Singapore to Sapporo non-stop.
SkyLady, the newly refurbished 767BBJ combines space, comfort and privacy for up to 51 passengers, and includes a private bedroom with en suite bathroom, a lounge and dining/conference room, as well as an executive first class seating area and a separate entourage area. Each passenger can benefit from the all-new purification system by ionisation which cleans air and surfaces from pathogens, bacteria and viruses. Equipped with non stop 2Ku band connectivity and capable of missions of over 15 flight hours non stop, SkyLady is suited to flying business leaders, heads of state, royal families or private individuals travelling with family and friends.
The 777BBJ, known as Crystal Skye, is one of the world's largest, most spacious and longest range (19 hours non stop) private jets. It offers to large groups such as corporations, sports teams or movies productions (up to 88 passengers) the luxury of travelling together and enjoying the journey with a separate social area with large dining/conference tables, stand-up bar and lounge seating.
The three ultra-spacious aircraft are providing a comprehensive range of VIP charter solutions for large groups travelling together and passengers wanting to increase their personal space on board.
