“This partnership signals another major milestone as we look to establish Aerion as the definitive global name in supersonic travel”, says Aerion Chairman, President & CEO, Tom Vice. “We are delighted to welcome Avion Pacific to our ever-expanding global team and look forward to our future collaboration as we bring a new era in sustainable supersonic travel, encapsulated in a unique luxury user experience to customers around the world.”
The AS2 will seamlessly combine sustainable supersonic flight with a new standard in luxury experience, yielding time savings of more than five hours on certain trans-pacific routes relative to other ultra-long-range aircraft.
As a preferred partner, Avion Pacific will collaborate with Aerion to offer expert Asia Pacific market intelligence and also support ongoing sales and marketing efforts as Aerion continues to build a presence in the region.
Since its inception in 1993, Avion Pacific has been at the forefront of business and general aviation growth in China and the Asia Pacific. Headquartered in Shenzhen, but with offices in major Asian cities, Avion Pacific’s services include fixed and rotary aircraft sales and distribution, special project consulting and support, aircraft flight services, spare parts distribution, aircraft leasing and financing and advanced rotary crew training and support.
“We are excited and honored to be partners with Aerion and to be at the forefront of introducing supersonic travel to the Asia Pacific region. The AS2 offers Asian clients significant travel time savings, with a leap forward in luxury & cabin experience, in the first carbon neutral aircraft. The AS2 is an aircraft that will shape the future of private aviation in Asia and globally and we at Avion Pacific wanted to be part of that” says Avion Pacific Chairman, Wu Zhendong.
