For more information, contact Monica Raymond at (805) 389-9357

(Greater Los Angeles Area, California – March 2020) – Sun Air Jets, private jet charter operator and aircraft management company, unveiled its new brand and website this month, both of which are intended to more fully represent the company and its services.

After evaluation of the former logo, the Sun Air Jets leadership team determined to refresh the company’s brand to better promote its current positioning in the market. Established in the private aviation industry for over twenty years, Sun Air Jets provides luxury travel and private jet management services and therefore needed a more modern brand to reflect its offerings.

The new logo comprises a modern sun with air symbols, representing the element of travel while incorporating visual notions unique to Sun Air. The Sun Air Jets name is displayed in a font with crisp edges and contemporary touches. Furthermore, the “A” in Sun Air Jets provides a visual reference to a private jet in flight.

Additionally, Sun Air Jets unveiled a whole new website to match the design of the new brand. The site encompasses new features to showcase the diverse Sun Air Jets charter fleet, including day and night configurations and a 360 virtual tour of each aircraft, inside and out. Visitors can also easily and quickly request a charter quote within the new flight booking tool, as well as subscribe to receive announcements for flight specials.

“We’re very excited to unveil the new Sun Air Jets brand,” says Brian Counsil, President and COO of Sun Air Jets. “The previous logo was created over 15 years ago and served us very well, but we feel this new logo more fully reflects the elegant and sophisticated services we offer to our customers.”

SAJ Achieves Highest Safety Registration Level From IS-BAO

Sun Air Jets, LA-based private jet charter and management company, achieves highest safety registration level from IS-BAO.

An achievement held by less than 10 commercial private jet operators in California

(Greater Los Angeles Area, California – January 2020) – Sun Air Jets, private charter jet operator and aircraft management company, has advanced to the highest safety registration level from the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO), IS-BAO Stage 3.

Sun Air Jets attained this voluntary registration level for its high quality, risk-averse safety and operational processes that permeates throughout company culture, an achievement held only by a select number of global operators and less than ten operators in California. This exclusive designation highlights Sun Air Jets’ constant dedication to aviation safety and professionalism, including employing dedicated safety personnel who ensure its private charter jet fleet adhere to the highest safety standards.

“Our organization prides itself on its identity as one of the safest private jet operators in the United States and achieving IS-BAO Stage 3 further solidifies that dedication,” commented Andreas Mauritzson, VP of Business Strategy and Director of Safety for the Company.

As evident of the private charter jet operator’s exemplary standards of safety, Sun Air Jets adds the distinction to a long list of safety awards and credentials, including ARGUS Platinum, Wyvern Flight Leader, and Air Charter Safety Foundation IAS.

According to Mary Cimbura, Inflight Services Coordinator and Assistant Director of Safety, “this designation is only made possible thanks to the mindset and determination of our crews and employees, who always focus on being vigilant when it comes to serving our clients in the safest and most efficient way possible.”

The International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations, developed by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) and its member associations, is a recommended voluntary code of best practices designed to help flight operations all over the world achieve high levels of safety and professionalism in their operations. IS-BAO Stage 3 is achieved when the operator verifies that safety management activities are fully integrated into the operator’s business and that a positive safety culture is being sustained.

Since Sun Air Jets implemented IS-BAO standards ten years ago, the company has been visited by IS-BAO auditors once every two years. Sun Air Jets, based in both Van Nuys and Camarillo, California, recognizes each audit as an opportunity to learn and grow.
