Boise, Idaho, July 24, 2009 — AERO Specialties has provided a package of ground support equipment to Beijing Business Aviation Center (BBAC), a joint venture involving Jet Aviation, Deer Air and Reach Investment. Located at Beijing’s Capital International Airport (PEK), BBAC provides AOG, ramp and line services, as well as passenger and crew handling. With its leading role in BBAC, Jet Aviation has become the first global business aviation services company to serve the growing business aviation community in China and international operators which regularly fly to and from Beijing.
Products AERO Specialties shipped to Beijing include a lavatory cart, a potable water cart, towbars, bag carts, ramp safety equipment and tooling for the Gulfstream, Bombardier, Cessna, Hawker and Dassault Falcon maintenance operation at BBAC.
“We’re proud to be able to provide our products to this important FBO in China,” said Matt Sheehan, president of AERO Specialties. “Jet Aviation has been a very loyal customer of ours for a long time, and it’s gratifying to see the trust they have in our GSE for their new enterprise,” Sheehan added.
Lutz Wierschin, BBAC’s general manager echoed Sheehan by saying, “We know and trust AERO Specialties’ equipment, and are confident they will provide ongoing support regardless of the geographical distance between them and us.” Paul Desgrosseilliers, FBO director at Jet Aviation Beijing added, “AERO’s service and support in starting up this operation in China has been exceptional. Regardless of the challenges we’ve faced at getting the GSE we need over here, they have gone above and beyond to make it happen. I couldn’t be happier with their service.”
