Mission


To enable responsible, sustainable growth for business aviation, enhancing connectivity and creating opportunities.

Business Aviation provides closely tailored, flexible, point to point air transportation for individuals, governments, businesses and local communities in the most time-efficient way possible.

It generally refers to an  on-demand industry that consists of a mixture of commercial and non-commercial services that encompasses everything from charter to corporate and emergency medical flights.

It makes people and businesses more efficient and contributes to connectivity and opportunities.

Business Aviation is about the nature of the service provided, not about the size or type of the aircraft. It is both technology neutral and open to new technologies
