BAA Jet Management Ltd of Hong Kong has taken delivery of its first managed Airbus aircraft, an A318 Elite, becoming the first to operate the
type in the Asian region.
The Airbus A318 Elite - the first to be registered in the People's Republic of China - is now based at Shenzen and is available for VVIP charter.
"This Airbus A318 Elite is the first in Asia to offer customers something that they cannot get with other high-end business jets - much greater
comfort, space and ease of movement around the cabin," said BAA Managing Director Ricky Leung. "And with seating for 18 passengers in our
A318 Elite, we can also carry larger business groups and families than any other corporate jet currently available for VVIP charter in the region
The Airbus A318 Elite is the newest member of the Airbus ACJ Family.
It features a cabin created in co-operation with Lufthansa Technik. Its
interior comprises several different seating zones in a spaciously large living area, as well as a very practical and private office that converts
into a bedroom, complete with ensuite bathroom.
BAA is one of the leading aviation companies in Asia, offering a complete range of business jet services, including charter, aircraft management,
flight support and aircraft sales and acquisitions. It will also manage three Airbus ACJs and two A350
