Chapman Freeborn Singapore partners with WingsOverAsia

Press Release   •   Aug 15, 2012 13:07 AEST

Leading aircraft charter specialist Chapman Freeborn has partnered with WingsOverAsia to solidify the aircraft enthusiasts’ community in Singapore and throughout the Asia region.

Based in Singapore, WingsOverAsia is Asia’s first aviation social network platform and aviation concierge service for private aircraft owners, pilots and enthusiasts.

The unique partnership between Chapman Freeborn and WingsOverAsia was formed on the shared interest for aircraft and aviation. Both companies seek to create a platform for aircraft enthusiasts to have informative exchanges on aircraft and private air chartering.

Nicolas Chemin, Senior Manager of Chapman Freeborn Singapore commented:

“Being in the aviation industry, Chapman Freeborn is passionate about aircraft; we are greatly honoured to partner with WingsOverAsia, the renowned aviation social network and concierge in Asia, to exchange knowledge as well as extend private air charter solutions to club members of WingsOverAsia.”

Private aircraft charter is the epitome of luxury that fulfils the highest standard of travelling in style. Truth be told, private aircraft charter has a very niche market in Asia. This is mainly constrained by its costs and the more conservative mind-set of Asians towards a service that is sometimes deemed only for the ultra-rich and famous.

Nonetheless, usage of private charters in Asia is now increasing, with the shifting of mind-sets, as Asian societies learn to appreciate benefits such as convenience, flexibility, and discretion that only private jet charters can deliver. With an established presence strategically located across Asia Pacific, Chapman Freeborn’s offices in Singapore, China and India have seen a steady growth in aircraft charter requests for executives and VIP flights in recent years.

Private aviation as a hobby is also increasingly popular, as seen by the expanding membership base of Club WingsoverAsia.

Ng Yeow Meng, Director of WingsOverAsia commented:

“WingsOverAsia is delighted to work with Chapman Freeborn to increase knowledge exchange in aircraft and aviation. The relationship we have is built on the passion we share on aircraft and flying – we are happy to extend Chapman Freeborn’s professional air charter services to our members.”
