METROJET’S HERITAGE

Our Group’s involvement with China’s aviation industry began in the 1930’s, as the country’s first air routes began to expand and foreign business interests developed. Airlines used The Peninsula Hotel as their terminal, where services provided were equal to those enjoyed at the airport.

In the 1950’s, the Group diversified into airline catering and provided the first full airline meal services to SAS in 1954, and later Swissair. In 1974, with purchase and registration of Hong Kong’s first private helicopter by our current Chairman, the way was paved for the formation of Heliservices, which was established in 1978 to service the community’s needs. In 1995, Metrojet was founded, making available Hong Kong’s first business jet for charter.

Our passion in aviation has led us in a 75-year-long commitment to the region’s aviation industry’s development. For more details on the Kadoorie family’s heritage and contribution to Hong Kong’s aviation industry, please visit Hong Kong Heritage Project.
