PhilJets Group based in Manila, Philippines, has joined the Luxaviation Helicopters Charter Alliance controlled by the Luxaviation Group headquartered in Luxembourg City, Luxembourg. The integration of PhilJets into the alliance, explains Luxaviation Helicopters, will provide members with VIP helicopter charter access in the Asia-Pacific region.
The Luxaviation Helicopters Charter Alliance (LHCA) also includes ExecuJet’s helicopter fleet in Mexico and South Africa, HeliFlite of the United States, HeliAustria of Austria, Azur Hélicoptère of France, Starspeed of the UK, and Helity of Spain.
“It is our goal to have 20 aircraft in our fleet and, by venturing into new [regions of] Asia, we are looking forward to working and exchanging with the other members of the alliance and extending our charter offerings to a greater audience,” said Thierry Tea, chairman, PhilJets Group.
All alliance members undergo an approval process to meet Luxaviation Helicopters’ standards in quality and safety management. All members can also benefit from Luxaviation Helicopters’ shared practices in industry certifications, efficiencies and customer service.
“The concept of the alliance is to provide a truly global service, whereby approved members can call upon each other to unlock new destinations for their clients,” said Charlotte Pedersen, CEO, Luxaviation Helicopters. “We look forward to welcoming more like-minded operators who have a commitment to quality and safety, and we are already speaking to other operators that we hope to confirm soon.”
Luxaviation describes itself as one of the largest private aircraft operators in the world, operating more than 260 jets and helicopters. In addition to charter services, the group provides a range of services including aircraft management for private and commercially registered aircraft, maintenance and fixed-base operations (FBOs). It operates under a regulatory umbrella of 15 air operator’s certificates and has a global network of 28 FBOs, which are operated under the ExecuJet brand.
