- Acquisition to strategically position Hawker Pacific for growth opportunities in Queensland
Hawker Pacific, the leading aviation solutions provider in Asia, Pacific and the Middle East, has today announced the acquisition of Adagold’s Fixed Base Operations (FBO) in Brisbane and Cairns.
The two acquired FBO operations have been operating under the Hawker Pacific brand since 24th January 2017. In Brisbane Hawker Pacific will operate from both its existing FBO facility and from the newly acquired FBO in the General Aviation precinct, providing unique access opportunities for customers.
As Asia Pacific's premier Fixed Based Operator, Hawker Pacific operates a network of world-class facilities across Australia and in the key Asian ports of Singapore and Shanghai, offering outstanding customer service and crew facilities on a 24/7/365 basis.
The expansion of Hawker Pacific's Fixed Base Operations further strengthens the company’s capacity to take full advantage of growth opportunities in Queensland.
The acquisition comes as Queensland gears up for the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, the scheduled completion of a new runway at Brisbane Airport in 2020 and the opening of a new Casino in Brisbane. Cairns continues to be a premier tourist destination with increased business traffic.
In addition to added capacity, the closer proximity of the new FBO facility to the new runway at Brisbane Airport will deliver significant time saving for Hawker Pacific customers particularly when utilising the General Aviation precinct.
Graham Owen, Hawker Pacific Vice President FBO Australia, is confident the acquisition of Adagold’s FBO business will further strengthen Hawker Pacific’s ability to meet growing demand in the Queensland market as well as securing a key location in regard to the future development of Brisbane Airport.
"Hawker Pacific is delighted to announce the acquisition of Adagold's FBO operations in Brisbane and Cairns. It's an exciting time for Queensland tourism right now and this expansion will significantly strengthen Hawker Pacific's capacity to capture these growth opportunities. With the recent announcements of improvement in the mining industry in QLD there is an expected a lift in the Fly In Fly Out sector. Hawker Pacific is focused on ensuring we continue to meet growing demand in this segment of the market and further cement our position as the leading Fixed Base Operator in the region," says Graham Owen, Vice President FBO Australia.
"Hawker Pacific is committed to world class, on-demand aviation services and proudly operates the largest network of FBO's across Australia and in the key Asian ports of Singapore and Shanghai. We look forward to adding an additional capacity to our network of world class FBO's and continuing to deliver our internationally recognised customer service levels," added Mr Owen.
