Guernsey-based Pula Aviation has acquired 100% of the share capital of ASG, another Guernsey business aviation operation.
ASG will form part of a new group holding company, Pula Aviation Services, together with Centreline AV, also owned by Pula. The new company will offer aircraft management and charter, maintenance, aircraft sales and executive ground handling, supported by a 100-strong workforce.
Colin Pickard, director of Pula Aviation, said, “This is an important strategic step for us, and we are delighted to be expanding our business aviation skillset with the acquisition of ASG Ltd, which has been delivering services to business and general aviation aircraft owners and operators for 28 years.”
Tanya Raynes will become chair of the new Pula Aviation Services in March, when she will relinquish her day to day role with Centreline AV, another Pula company. Steve Page, who has led ASG since 2014, becomes CEO of the new company.
Tanya Raynes said, “With two established and successful businesses coming together, we are excited to be creating a new, one-call, privately owned aviation group. We are combining Centreline’s and ASG’s strong entrepreneurial spirit and customer service values and I believe this to be the perfect platform to support Pula Aviation’s ambitious plans for growth.”
