Magellan Jets Enters the Private Aviation Market in China

Magellan Jets Enters the Private Aviation Market in China and Launches a Range of Specialty Services
Magellan Jets is Providing Students and Families in China with Private Jet Transportation to the U.S., Elite Concierge Services and Top-Tier Medical Expertise
Boston, MA. – July 25, 2011 -Magellan Jets is pleased to announce their expansion into the Chinese market. Now, all types of Chinese travelers can enjoy Magellan Jets’ prestige private jet and concierge services. China has recently advanced in transportation across the board; they currently have the world’s fastest train, the world’s largest high-speed rail network and they recently set a new world record for making and selling 18 million vehicles in 2010. The past several months have seen Chinese private aviation regulations relaxed. In turn, more people are turning to private jet charter for their travel and business needs. Magellan Jets will seize this tremendous opportunity to serve clients who now have access to private jet travel.
The first service that Magellan Jets will launch in China is the Cultural Educational Charter Service, the only of its kind in the industry, which will not only transport Chinese students to the U.S. for their higher education, but also see that all of their needs are tended to once they touch down. As the education of this child is extremely important to the family, Magellan Jets understands how imperative it is to aid the student in acclimating to their new environment and putting their families at ease.
“We are thrilled to be able to enter into the private aviation market in China,” says Magellan Jets CEO, Joshua Hebert. “This is a great time for us to enter China and we would like to be the trusted source of establishing Chinese students and families.”
Magellan Jets will also provide assistance with personal letters of invitation and consultations for U.S. Visa Applications and EB-5 Investor Immigration Business opportunities, which provide Green Cards for Magellan’s clients. A Green Card (or Permanent Residency) gives the holder, and his or her immediate family, the right to live, study and work anywhere in the US. There are many Visa categories, and while some allow for a green card after you have been in the USA for a period of time, most do not. The EB-5 Visa is unusual in that it provides a green card at the outset and that it is the only Visa which allows retirement to the US. It also provides the flexibility to live anywhere, study or take any job, own and operate any business, and to change employment or career without restrictions.
Families in China who seek to send their children to the U.S. to pursue their education may now turn to Magellan Jets as their complete private jet travel and concierge solution. A team of specialists in the fields of medicine and real estate will work closely with Magellan Jets to fulfill all requests so that parents who utilize Magellan Jets’ services can be confident that their child will travel safely and will be taken care of once they arrive in the U.S. Students will be provided with a complete package; flights to and from China, and an array of world class services and amenities.
Magellan Jets has appointed Stephen Huntsman as Global Advisor and Chief Business Development-Director of Sales for the Asia market. Mr. Huntsman plays a key role in deal origination, negotiation and implementation with intimate Chinese Government officials and world class relationships.
The initial step in Magellan Jets’ Cultural Educational Plan is for the client to have a complete evaluation with Magellan Jet’s U.S. based consultant, Li Jing. Ms. Jing is an internationally famous TV host and producer, and a Wharton Business Journalism award winner. Having studied and lived in both China and America, Jing has extensive experience in how to successfully adapt to different cultures. Her goal is to counsel the clients to aid in their adjustment to living in the U.S.
Based in China, Magellan Jets has a point of contact who will also act as a consultant in this process, David Xu. David Xu has been named the Magellan Jets Charter Agent in China. Mr. Xu attended Harvard where he studied Private Equity and Venture Capital.
Additionally, private Air Ambulance flights are available if necessary. Dr. Robert Glatter has been appointed as the Director of The Magellan Jets Travel Response Team; he is on call 24/7 to assist with all medical issues. Dr. Glatter is a board certified emergency medicine physician and is currently an attending physician at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. Dr. Glatter has also served as a sideline physician and medical consultant in the NFL for the New York Jets from 2004-2007. Dr. Glatter currently serves on the Board of the Worldwide Children’s Foundation of New York (, providing lifesaving and life altering surgeries to children throughout the world. He also serves on the editorial board of Medscape Emergency Medicine, an affiliate of WebMD, providing educational support to practicing physicians.
In order to provide its Asian clients with seamlessly integrated private jet charter options, Magellan Jets has partnered with OrientSKYs private jets, who will be providing logistical and operational flight support. Since 2006 OrientSKYs has provided sales, marketing and business development services to Jet Asia Limited and continues to use Jet Asia as its preferred aircraft operator. Established in Macau in 1995, Jet Asia has earned the reputation as one of Asia’s premier executive charter fleets and was the first Asian business jet operator to have achieved safety certification under the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operators (IS-BAO).
Once the logistics concerning the travel arrangements are solidified, other plans may be made for the initial family trip (if requested) to visit Universities for selection and interviews and the official trip to bring the student abroad. Magellan Jets is fully equipped to make the student’s life post-move a seamless transition. They will help with all purchase requests, including cars, parking spots and moving the student into their living space. Private drivers can be made available to the students if so desired. Additionally, Magellan Jets has a superior team in place to deliver all security-related needs. Before any of these services are taken advantage of, Magellan Jets will utilize their exclusive alliance with top-tier real estate companies to lease or buy housing for the student.
Magellan Jets China charter services are not just for families. They will also launch charter services that appeal to high-rollers and businessmen. Magellan Jets has been offering travel from all points throughout Asia; Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Shenyang; and globally to the hottest gaming destinations in the world; including Macau and Las Vegas. Designed for businessmen and gaming aficionados, Magellan Jets allows these individuals to avoid the public eye and troublesome public transportation hassles.
