Deer Jet is to become the operator of world’s first VVIP BBJ 787 Dreamliner.
Deer Jet and Boeing announced jointly at the European Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition, the largest business aviation event in Europe.
This VVIP BBJ 787 is truly a Dream Jet.
It has a range of 16,000 kilometres and can fly nonstop for 17.5 hours at Mach 0.85.
Its lower cabin pressure, fresher air and the 220m large cabin area would ensure an extremely comfortable flying experience.
At a media event evening held by Boeing Denzil White, president of Deer Jet’s subsidiary Hong Kong Jet, said: “This VVIP BBJ 787 is the most high-end business jet in the world.
“Becoming its operator shows the strength of Deer Jet’s global operations capabilities.”
Deer Jet currently operates nearly 90 business jets, including four BBJ, which means it already has significant experience operating Boeing Business Jets.
The famous tourism brand under HNA group, CAISSA Touristic, has also entered the high-end custom-tailored tourism market over the last two years and has achieved marked success.
Zhang Peng, chairman, Deer Jet, said: “Over the past few years, our strategy of ‘Customer Experience Focus’ has not only brought us more clients, but also allowed us to raise the standards of service to a new level.
“Although the 787 BBJ is a brand new model for us, we are fully capable of operating it and granting the best experience to our clients.
“At the same time, we will work with HNA-CAISSA Touristic Group to develop a tailor-made journey, using the 787 BBJ, so that more people can experience the beauty of high-end customized travel.”
Zhang Peng added: “This 787 BBJ will push us to grow faster.”
Deer Jet has developed very rapidly over the past few years.
It established Deer Jet (Beijing), Deer Jet (Shanghai) and Hong Kong Jet to optimise its network, it has collaborated with Gulfstream and Dassault Aviation to improve maintenance services.
It also has established Honour Aviation Support, and has opened eight FBOs across China.
In 2015, Deer Jet’s domestic market share rose to 70 per cent, and its international flight hours exceeded 50 per cent.
Deer Jet also received the ‘World Leading Private Jet Charter’ award at the World Travel Awards, further raising the company’s market reputation.
