Jet Aviation completes integration of Hawker Pacific in Singapore

SHANGHAI / April 16, 2019 – Jet Aviation has finished integrating its Hawker Pacific operations at Seletar Airport in Singapore, which now run under the Jet Aviation brand. Jet Aviation acquired Hawker Pacific in May 2018. The two physically adjacent companies each operated MRO and FBO facilities in Singapore.

Integration of the Hawker Pacific Singapore operations, which commenced following the company’s acquisition by Jet Aviation last May, is complete. The combined MRO and FBO facility in Singapore now operates under the Jet Aviation logo. As a single unified company, Jet Aviation’s expanded Singapore operation gains Authorized Service Center status for Embraer and Dassault aircraft, increases its available hangar space to nearly 20,000 square meters, and more than doubles its headcount, now at 299 employees. It also significantly broadens the range of OEMs and aircraft types it supports, while bringing its national aviation approvals up to 19.

“We are delighted to see the two operations organized and functioning as one cohesive team,” said Louis Leong, Jet Aviation’s VP Asia and GM Singapore. “It’s a big challenge to integrate two sites without disrupting customer services and I couldn’t be prouder of the impressive teamwork demonstrated throughout the integration process.”

Joe Reckling, SVP Regional Operations APAC, added, “Uniting the facilities under Jet Aviation offers significant customer benefits, such as access to a broader range of services and expertise, and a much larger global network. Our Singapore team is stronger than ever and I look forward to seeing what it will achieve throughout 2019.”

Following the acquisition of Hawker Pacific by Jet Aviation in 2018, the company formed a new region in Asia-Pacific (APAC) to which it appointed Joe Reckling SVP Regional Operations. Responsible for overseeing the company’s business activities throughout the region, Reckling has also joined the company’s leadership team, reporting directly to Jet Aviation President, Rob Smith. The new APAC region has more than 20 locations, including a regional MRO hub in Singapore, regional headquarters in Sydney, and some 1,100 employees.

Jet Aviation is exhibiting at ABACE in Shanghai, China from April 16 – 18, 2019. Please take the time to visit us at our Jet Aviation Booth (#A531).

‘Our BBGA membership gives us access to an unparalleled repository of knowledge on aviation regulations and practices. If BBGA’s own in-house experts can’t answer a query they know someone who can; right across all of the disciplines of certified general aviation and business aviation too.
BBGA’s ability to bring together all sectors of UK general and business aviation gives us enviable networking access.
Nobody has the ear of the regulator like BBGA and that’s two-way thing; BBGA is not just able to elicit answers from EASA, the CAA and DfT, its advice and recommendations are sought both nationally and supra-nationally too. That makes membership a vital way to influence upcoming policy.’
