Sino Jet maintains status in Asia's large cabin market
Sino Jet remains the largest operator of large cabin aircraft in Asia. Its current roster includes the Gulfstream G650(ER), G550, Dassault 8X, 7X, Bombardier 6500, Global 6000, ACJ, BBJ and the Lineage 1000.

Sino Jet has once again been recognised as Asia's largest business jet operator by Asian Sky Group's recently released 2020 Annual Fleet Report. Sino Jet is the top operator with the largest fleet in Asia for the second time in a row, with a fleet of 47 business jets. Despite a dramatic drop in aviation activities caused by the pandemic, Sino Jet grew its fleet size steadily. The operator has further strengthened its uniformity in terms of fleet composition to specialise in medium and large cabin aircraft, which account for over 90 per cent of its fleet.

Sino Jet is committed to expanding its service scope by lifting the industry benchmark with enhanced ground handling services and capabilities, as well as the formation of FBO partnerships.

The company is headquartered in both Beijing and Hong Kong and is supplemented by satellite offices in many other cities including Shanghai, Hangzhou, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Macau and Singapore. This strategic network of offices inside and outside mainland China is the successful key to providing top-tier customised business jet services, while accommodating aircraft on different registries. Other specialised services include, but are not limited to, aircraft purchase consultation, aircraft financing, maintenance, air charter, aircraft ground handling and FBO services. Sino Jet is the first operator to be awarded IS-BAO Stage III certification, which denotes the highest safety standard recognised internationally.

To combat the harsh operating environment in 2020, with no compromises to safety, Sino Jet completed a number of large cabin jet deliveries from overseas through effective flight planning and utilisation of international resources. At the same time, it enhanced its maintenance capabilities to cover the latest aircraft technologies to ensure minimum maintenance downtimes for the newest aircraft types to enter service.

With the addition of the latest aircraft models to its fleet, Sino Jet has a strategically structured fleet composition. It is currently the largest operator of large cabin aircraft, namely the Gulfstream G650(ER), G550, Dassault 8X, 7X, Bombardier 6500, Global 6000, ACJ, BBJ and Lineage 1000.

Continuous elevation of service standards and quality is one of the company goals. Sino Jet aims to expand its ground services to provide a consistent premium journey experience to its clients. The company has launched its first FBO at Nanchang Changbei airport, and it has also begun a joint operation of the FBO and MRO businesses at Chengdu Shuangliu International airport with Sichuan Province Airport Group. At the same time, Sino Jet has further expanded its footprint by becoming the first business jet operator to station at Hainan Free Trade Port. This expansion will bring operating costs down, benefiting clients in the Sanya and Haikou regions where business aviation is blooming with increased demand.

As business grows, Sino Jet is taking its corporate social responsibilities seriously and is committed to help advance society. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the company has repeatedly shipped medical equipment and resources by its business jets across mainland China; donated multifunctional mobile medical stations to the local Hubei provincial government; provided free ground handling services to support Chinese government flight activities; partaken in industry forums and online events to share its expertise in safety and flight operations and established Sino Jet Academy to give corporate flight attendant trainings to aspired talents. Such efforts are well received by society as well as the industry.

Sino Jet was awarded with the highest recognition in 2020, the World's Leading Private Jet Company at the World Travel Awards, which was based on fleet size, customer satisfaction and commitment towards corporate social responsibility.

Looking forward, Sino Jet aims to continue its development by further enhancing its operational efficiency, uplifting safety and service standards and promoting sustainable industrial growth; to be the business aviation operator held with the highest regard for safety, service quality, trust and reliability.
