CLEVELAND, OHIO, January 14, 2014 – Nextant Aerospace (“Nextant”), maker of the Nextant 400XTi, the world’s only remanufactured business jet, has announced the appointment of JetHQ as its exclusive sales agent for Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Turkey, and Lebanon. These countries represent some of the most active private aviation markets in the Middle East.
JetHQ and its Dubai-based Managing Director Garett Jerde will play a key role in progressing with Nextant’s sales, marketing, and customer service strategy in the region. Mr. Jerde has strong experience in private aviation and deep product knowledge of entry-level aircraft. JetHQ has seen commercial success broking a wide range of aircraft including Beechcraft, Hawker, Bombardier, Gulfstream, and Augusta. Before starting JetHQ, Mr. Jerde was a top salesman for Hawker Beechcraft, twice earning honors as Salesman of the Year.
“I am excited to be part of the global Nextant team,” said Mr. Jerde. “Both the 400XTi and the G90XT are great aircraft for the Middle Eastern market. They deliver unmatched performance, versatility and reliability at half the price of the competition. The aircraft are also excellent platforms for Special Missions applications including air ambulance, freight, training, surveillance, and high-density seating and cloud seeding.”
Nextant aircraft are delivered with full factory warranties backed by a worldwide network of owned and authorized service centers – including the recently appointed Jet Aviation Dubai – and a global parts distribution infrastructure supported by Directional Capital’s Aerospace Products International (API).
Jay Heublein, Nextant Executive Vice President for Global Sales and Marketing, adds: “We see the Middle East as a region with great potential. Following the economic challenges of past years, there is an increased focus on value in business aviation. Local economies are rebounding, both corporate and individual wealth are on the rise and there is demonstrated demand for Special Missions aircraft.”
