The Gulfsteam fleet in Greater China (China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan) has grown to more than 165 aircraft and makes up more than half of the Asia-Pacific fleet, the airframer has announced. This makes the fleet, the company’s largest internationally.
“We have experienced tremendous growth in Greater China, particularly on the mainland, where we had 30 aircraft in 2010 and now have more than 100, including the new G650ER that recently delivered into China,” said Scott Neal, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales & Marketing, Gulfstream.
“We have more than 65 percent of the market share for large-cabin aircraft in Greater China,” Neal said. “That speaks to the performance, reliability and comfort of our flagship, the G650ER, along with the G650, G550 and G450, as well as the world-class service and support we give to our owners and operators.”
In excess of 50 Gulfstream aircraft are based at Hong Kong’s International Airport, including eight G650/G650ERs. Gulfstream’s Beijing service center, a joint venture with Hainan Group has handled 134 aircraft visits in 2015 and to support the growing Gulfstream fleet in the region, the company has positioned approximately US$65 million in parts in Hong Kong, Beijing and Singapore.
