HI, WE'RE KJET

We focus solely on the management of privately owned and operated aircraft worldwide and are simply here to make your life easier.

AT KJET you won’t find a boardroom full of shareholders or an endless stream of charter customers, what you will find is a perfectly formed team of aviation specialists who only care about doing what’s best for our aircraft owners, always.

Our approach to doing business focuses on creating positive experiences each and every day.

Our Vision

To be the company that best understands the needs of our aircraft owners and to surpass expectations by creating a service our clients feel is exclusively theirs.

Our Mission

To provide the personalised attention you would expect from a smaller firm at exceptional value, and stringently upholding aviation regulations and commitment to safety.

WHY KJET?

At KJET, we believe there is a better way to do business.

A more nimble, less bureaucratic approach where your aircraft ownership journey aligns with your purpose. We’re obsessively passionate about it. Putting your aviation needs at the centre of our thinking, our team is committed and work tirelessly to ensure you feel we are here exclusively for you.

KJET Aircraft Management Team

We believe that the ‘one size fits all’ commoditises a service in an industry that is anything but. Our clients are far from ‘standard’ and nor would we want them to be.

Our quality over quantity approach is core to our company ethos and means we can be completely dedicated in the pursuit of creating an aircraft ownership experience that is truly enjoyable.

We are agile and relentless when it comes to achieving economical and operational efficiencies.

We uphold discretion, always, and have an enduring dedication to supporting your operational requirements whilst upholding our commitment to safety.

MEET THE TEAM

We’re a high-performing, hand-selected team of subject matter experts and industry professionals that always get the job done right.

A nimble unit that can easily pivot in response to the changing needs of our clients and the world around us. As a team, we truly value our clients and are here to create lasting relationships built on trust and deep understanding.
