MALAYSIA: Gulfstream Aerospace, a prominent player in the aviation industry, is witnessing a substantial surge in interest for its G280 and G600 aircraft across the Malaysian and Southeast Asian markets.
This heightened demand extends to various segments, including corporations, individuals, and government entities.
In recent years, global aircraft sales have maintained robust figures, but Southeast Asia has emerged as a standout region, experiencing exceptional growth in aviation demand.
The suitability of Gulfstream’s G280 and G600 aircraft for operators in Malaysia aligns with the flourishing aviation sector in the region.
During the Selangor Aviation Show 2023 at Shah Alam, Selangor, Gulfstream Aerospace presented the midsize G280 and ultra-long-range G600 aircraft, expressing optimism about introducing these products to Southeast Asia.
According to Division Vice President of Sales for Asia-Pacific, Wayne Oedewaldt, while closing deals during the show is uncommon, the event serves as a platform for networking and product exploration.
These interactions often lead to ongoing conversations spanning weeks or even years before a purchase decision is reached. Typically, it takes at least two years to finalise such transactions.
The 2023 list prices for the G280 and G600 aircraft stand at US$24.5 million and US$59.5 million, respectively.
To meet the escalating demand in the Asia-Pacific region, Gulfstream Aerospace has expanded its network of authorised warranty facilities.
These facilities include Mjets in Bangkok, Thailand; Deer Jet in Beijing; Business Aviation Asia in Shenzhen; and ExecuJet Haite Aviation Services China in Tianjin.
Globally, Gulfstream boasts a fleet of approximately 3,000 aircraft, with around 300 of them based in Southeast Asia.
Gulfstream is making its debut at the Selangor Aviation Show 2023, a three-day event, that commenced on 8 Sept at the SkyPark Regional Aviation Centre in Selangor.
Wayne Oedewaldt commented on their participation, stating, “We heard good things about the show last year, and we knew that it is going to continue to grow, and we want to be part of it.”
Meanwhile, Gulfstream has made the decision not to exhibit next month at NBAA-BACE 2023 in Las Vegas, saying it “consistently reviews and evaluates” marketing investments.
“Gulfstream has successfully created private events and experiences that have exceeded our customers’ expectations while delivering on our business objectives..
“We will continue to evaluate opportunities and invest in those that best support this mission,” it said.
