Dubai-based Aviation Services Management, the specialist in aviation services including ground handling, fueling and FBOs, will use the platform of the upcoming Dubai Air Show 2013 to unveil expansion plans.
The company will target the key high growth private and commercial aviation markets of Africa, South America and South East Asia, a statement said.
ASM already operates in 3,000 locations through its agents and service provider network for aviation refueling, handling and is seeking to add further to its network to deliver its services by developing ASM’s global reach, from 2014 onwards.
ASM provides services to aviation segments such as scheduled airlines, charter and business flights, and general aviation operators and has a strong market share in fuel, handling and trip support services, working with clients including some of the industry’s leading international carriers, on fuel and flight diversion service tenders.
The company was originally founded in the UK in 1998 and now operates from Dubai Airport Free Zone, offering a broad range of integrated specialist aviation services and 24/7 flight support from operations in the UAE, UK and India. From this base, ASM is now targeting expansion into new regions and is recruiting a new senior management team to manage the process and expanded operations.
“Dubai Air Show 2013 is a very special occasion highlighting the impact on the regional and international aviation sector of the new, world class Dubai World Central facilities,” said Vito Gomes, founder and managing director of ASM.
“Our operations at the regional aviation hub – and one of the world’s major aviation hubs - have created the foundation, reputation and opportunity for ASM to build a global presence in ground handling, flight services and fuelling; our clear aim now is to start to deliver these services in new regions and to create a truly global operation offering integrated, bespoke specialist aviation services and solutions.”
Dubai Air Show will be held from November 17 to 21at Dubai World Central
