(BAA) and Luxaviation pooled their expertise to form a strategic global alliance, the two world-leading business aviation companies have further extended their combined international network to deliver service excellence across the globe. The companies have a joint stand # H1122 at ABACE.

The strategic partnership, announced in April 2017, of BAA, one of the most influential business aviation operators in Asia Pacific, and Luxaviation, a leading global private aviation operator, has brought together a fleet of more than 270 aircraft and 50 helicopters in addition to 1,700 employees worldwide.

Combining the best of business aviation in the west and the east, both companies have entrenched their respective leading positions in the first year of the alliance by expanding and enhancing their combined service offering to customers.

In 2018, the strategic alliance will further extend the all-round collaboration into different areas, such as flight crews, FBO usage, MRO procurement, charter services, IT infrastructure and staff exchange programs.

Luxaviation recently announced a collaboration with Paragon Aviation Group resulting in a network of 53 FBOs globally.

Luxaviation Helicopters, part of the Luxaviation Group, also acquired Starspeed, the global helicopter management, charter and training company. The deal, Luxaviation Helicopters’ first acquisition since launching in February 2017, positions the company as the world’s largest VIP and VVIP helicopter operator.

Luxaviation has also announced the opening of an additional AOC in San Marino. The new AOC gives business jet and helicopter owners a further solution for aircraft registration, asset management and commercial operation. Building on Luxaviation’s extensive global presence, the conclusion of the San Marino certification means customers now have 15 AOCs available to accommodate their specific needs.
