June 12, 2019

Leading global trip support solutions provider, UAS International Trip Support (UAS) has been lauded as winner of the Innovation in Business Aviation Category at the 2019 fourth annual Sapphire Pegasus Business Aviation Awards.  The award and certificate was formally presented at the gala dinner during The Caribbean Aviation Meet-up event in St Maarten.

Established in 2000, UAS has continental headquarters in Houston, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, and Dubai, and regional offices in Beijing, Nairobi, and Lagos.

The award is the fourth endorsement for UAS at the awards, which recognize excellence in the EMEA region. In 2018, UAS won the title of Service Provider of the year; while Co-Owner/Founder and Executive President Mohammed Husary scooped the Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2016, UAS was awarded the accolade for Charity Effort for its CSR activities.

“Innovation in Business Aviation continues to be one of the most popular categories in our awards which salute best in class professionalism.  It recognises companies that are consistently passionate about improving their services, practices and technology,” said Antonia Lukacinova, Founder of the Sapphire Pegasus Business Aviation Awards.

“UAS was a popular winner, with industry peers voting online and industry judges praising the 20-year old company for their commitment in rolling out innovative solutions for their clients,” she highlighted.

The award honours UAS’ commitment to innovation in all areas of its business – global trip support, technology, air charter, and executive travel. In recent years, UAS has invested in the development of its own aviation technology suite UAS Evolution® designed specifically for business aviation needs and to make operations most time and cost-effective.

“We’re delighted to receive this recognition. Thank you to Sapphire Pegasus and from our esteemed industry friends for this incredible excellent acknowledgement. Innovation is key to our strategy at UAS and our investment in technology development and enhancing the customer experience is testament to that, “said Mohammed Husary, UAS Co-Owner/Founder and Executive President.

“UAS Evolution® technology is being positively received globally. Most recently, we’ve joined forces with Honeywell to provide global connectivity to the business jet fleet of Hongkong Jet with UAS LinkEvolution™ for flight services and communication, combined with Honeywell GoDirect cabin services for passenger connectivity.  We will continue to invest in technological innovation and ensure our beloved industry continues to evolve,” he added.  

The Sapphire Pegasus Business Aviation Awards were founded by Media Tribune’s Antonia Lukacinova in 2016 to recognize excellence in companies and individuals within the business aviation sector around Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
