London, May 4th 2011: A J Walter Aviation has been entrusted to provide Global Jet FZCO with a wide range of integrated aircraft support services. AJW’s global experience and significant Boeing and Airbus inventories will provide Global Jet with a cost-effective and flexible foundation to strengthen its ambitious growth plans for charter and cargo services.
In an extensive three year agreement, AJW will be working closely with Global Jet to develop an exclusive airside facility in the Dubai Free Zone which will comprise support for consumables and rotables as well as complete engine management for current and future fleets. AJW will also consign inventories as required to support these B737-300/400 and A300-600 aircraft fleets.
Private jet company Global Jet aims to increase capacity to take advantage of predicted 15 percent growth in demand for its air charter services. "Our market share is growing” says Mouayad Al Hassan, Chief Executive of Global Jet. “We are experiencing increased demand for passenger and cargo charters especially during the Haj and Eid season, and need the reassurance of a professional partner to shore up our rapid growth. A J Walter Aviation has proven itself to be accommodating to our varied and fluctuating needs.”
John Avery, Director of Supply Chain Services at AJW, is justifiably enthusiastic about this new partnership which consolidates AJW’s developing presence in the Middle East: “AJW has been trading globally for almost 80 years and we are accustomed to tailoring our services to meet the specific and diverse needs of operators. In this dynamic region, culture and commercial imperatives combine to create a unique working environment and we will provide a depth of specialist support to help Global Jet achieve their aims.”
