Metrojet Ltd., a leading provider of business aircraft services in Asia, today announced new business partnerships with globallyrecognised MedAire Inc. and AGlaze, highlighting the company’s constant determination to enhance operational excellence.
Metrojet has entered a partnership agreement with MedAire Inc. (www.medaire.com), the global leader in aviation medical and travel risk management services. Since 1985, MedAire Inc. has been assisting passengers and crew around the world with 24/7 medical advice and assistance services.
Metrojet is the first Hong Kong based business jet operator engaging MedAire’s full suite of medical, security, and travel safety products and services. “MedAire’s expertise in medical services extends Metrojet’s commitment to delivering 6-star business aviation services to our clients with uncompromising approach to safety and operational excellence,” said Björn Näf, Chief Executive Officer of Metrojet.
“Metrojet’s commitment to safety and customer service is evident in every aspect of their business,” said Grant Jeffery, CEO of MedAire. “Backed by MedAire’s global assistance network, Metrojet’s clients will receive peace of mind that health, security and logistics expertise is available 24/7, wherever their travels take them.”
Metrojet has also partnered with AGlaze, a UK based company, and their Asian operations, Synergy Asia AGlaze (http://www.aglaze-asia.com/), specialising in protective coatings that help protect an aircraft’s paintwork from harsh environments such as extreme temperature changes, changing weather conditions and the sun’s UV rays at high altitudes.
AGlaze provides an extremely cost effective method of maintaining both the appearance and performance of all aircraft types. The sealant system more than doubles the paint life of long haul airliners, makes it far easier to keep clean and reduces down time, as well as helps protect aircraft against acid rain, oxidisation and fallout, snow and ice.
AGlaze, approved by both Airbus and Boeing, has also proven to increase fuel efficiency, which reduces carbon dioxide emissions. After six months of extensive testing on a Boeing 737-300, the results have shown an airframe improvement of 0.8%, from which has been calculated a 161 tonne fuel saving per year for the AGlazed aircraft.
Metrojet is the exclusive partner of AGlaze in the business aviation arena across various regions in Asia, providing products applied on Metrojet’s growing portfolio of serviced business aircraft. “We care about every minute detail of our clients’ aircraft. The partnership with AGlaze is a perfect example to showcase how we continuously search for ways to protect the value of its client’s assets.” said Steve Hughes, Metrojet’s Director of Maintenance and Engineering. “We are delighted and honoured to work with Metrojet and support their premium service for aircraft owners.” said Synergy Asia AGlaze Managing Director Robin Whittaker. “We have been looking after the paintwork & exterior appearance of super yachts and luxury cars for many years. To now offer our aviation products via Metrojet further affirms our dedication to ensure the finest quality is achieved on a wider range of premium assets.” commented Whittaker.
