Deer Jet To Add Six FBOs in Next 15 Months

By Neharika Padala

Chinese private aviation operator Deer Jet is continuing its robust expansion despite challenges in its home economy, according to its President, Zhang Peng. Speaking during a press conference at NBAA in Orlando, he said the company will open FBOs in Xi’an, Nanjing and Guilin this year, bringing its total to seven, and add three more FBO locations in 2015. He told Elite Traveler he plans to open more terminals in yet to be disclosed locations in Asia outside of China.

With a fleet of 82 aircraft, Zhang reported that year-to-date Deer Jet international flight operations increased by 80 percent, recording 1,847 movements to over 300 airports worldwide. Aircraft are split between Beijing with 46, 20 based in Shanghai, eight in Hong Kong, 4 in the U.S. and 2 each in Dubai and Moscow. The American fleet operated 265 flights to 46 airports.

The company also announced partnerships with Honeywell expanding its maintenance operations in China and Mission Air Support to assist in recruiting foreign pilots.

Deer Jet, which celebrates its 20th anniversary next year, recently was selected by World Travel Awards as Best Charter Operator in China and Asia to its award shelf.
