HFW and AsBAA Survey: Illegal Charter – Are illegal charters harming APAC business aviation?
HFW and the Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA) have conducted a joint survey of the AsBAA membership in relation to illegal charter of business jets across the Asia Pacific region. Anecdotally, illegal charter activity – which essentially involves the use of private aircraft for commercial purposes – occurs in many Asia Pacific countries, although the position is opaque and the full extent of the problem has been difficult to establish. This survey represents the first attempt to capture industry perception of this issue in the APAC region.
