騰達航空 TDA Air
商務航空品牌騰達航空，商標盾牌圖樣，傳達出鞏固安全和保護隱私的核心精神。疫情似一道亂流攪亂了平穩的生活航道，營運副總戴君翰說到，近來不少留學生家庭，經過體溫量測去除染疫風險後包機返家，全身都是防護裝備，空服員每隔一個小時就得進行消毒作業，更配以灣流旗艦機種 G650ER 解除民航飛機循環空氣疑慮，不斷進出的新鮮空氣成為客艙衛生關鍵指標。
營運副總戴君翰指出，相比美國私人飛機市場蓬勃發展，從商務機甚至到螺旋槳已經超過 25,000 架，台灣則僅有 20 多架，其中以大型遠端商務機備受青睞。為此，騰達航空引進灣流 G650ER，長達 7,500 海浬的航程涵蓋全球 3/4 座城市，單次加油即可抵達；另龐巴迪環球 Global 5000 可持續飛行 9 小時，囊括大亞洲舉凡東北亞、東南亞和太平洋島國等區域，滿足每一次飛往異地的渴望。
TDA Air is a brand of commercial flight; its shield pattern trademark shows the core spirit of consolidating security and protecting privacy. The pandemic situation is like a turbulent flow that has disrupted the flying way of smooth life. Dai Jun-Han, Vice President of Operations of TDA Air, mentioned that recently many families of overseas students have chartered planes to return homeland after removing the risk of infection through temperature measurement, and their entire bodies are covered with protective equipment. Besides carrying out disinfection operations every hour, TDA Air also has equipped the best model Gulfstream G650ER to remove the doubt about the circulating air of civil aviation aircraft. The continuously in and out fresh air becomes a key indicator of cabin health.
Yet, as the domestic pandemic state mitigates, local tourism becomes flourishing. As long as the airport is in operation, private planes can fly immediately. The courtesy and customs clearance will keep off the crowded and save passengers’ time; the holiday feeling bursts since the moment the flight takes off. Besides, the midway pick-up, hotel reservation, and venue tickets can all be agented. The customized service is like a close housekeeper taking good care of the traveling experience.
Dai Jun-Han, Vice President of Operations of TDA Air, pointed out that compared with the vigorous development of the private jet market in the United States, there are more than 25,000 commercial jet and propeller aircraft, yet there are only about 20 privet aircraft in Taiwan. Among them, the large remote commercial aircraft is the favorite one. To this trend, TDA Air has introduced the Gulfstream G650ER model; the 7,500 nautical miles of flying distance has covered 3/4 cities in the world made by single refueling. In addition, Bombardier Global 5000 can fly for 9 hours; the flying area has covered the entire Asian region, including the Northeast and Southeast Asia and Pacific island countries, meeting the desires of each flying abroad.
Although the economic scale and capacity of domestic private aircraft still need to be expanded, TDA Air has already in advance deployed the “SMS Safety Management System”, which is the only “online” monitoring system in Taiwan that has abandoned the traditional paper-based control. “Frankly that by facing the condition of lack of data, it would not only increase the difficulty of system construction but also to spend millions of TWD, ” said Dai. However, airline personnel, and even passengers, can instantly reflect the flight state through the online system. Mega data can build a stable foundation basis and mitigate the tense and unstable feeling in the journey.
Before takeoff, TDA Air dispatchers tailor flight plans and assess risk factors of takeoff, flying, and landing as if taking careful health care for this trip. The consulting group stands beyond the maintenance, and flight departments set the Professional Review Committee (PRD) and Discipline Review Board (DRB). Senior civil aviation professionals transcend their personal emotional professional judgment and build the safety net from operation details. “Although private aircraft costs high, it would be a wise choice in terms of time cost, personal safety, and privacy,” said Dai.
商務航空品牌 VIP Global 於 2008 年成立，廣泛蒐羅消費者回饋後發現私人飛機使用常態，消費者如果使用頻率每年不到 500 小時，「不增加價值反而變成負擔」，這才推出「飛行時數訂購模式」成為品牌最大特點，提供乘客每年 100 小時任意使用的範圍，3天前提出飛行需求就能任意前去心中嚮往的目的地。
總裁孫傑克觀察過去私人飛機普遍採取產權共用模式，他則另闢蹊徑說到「當節慶大家都想出去到底誰先用就是大問題，此外，目前市場上所有飛機年份參差不齊，就會存在飛安疑慮。」VIP Global 為此堅持只用 5-6 年的飛機，成立至今陸續擁有 7,800 多架私人飛機合作，不僅讓配合廠商的飛機運用量提升，也確保優良的飛安品質。
VIP Global 目前擁有的機隊包括超中型、大客艙到遠端公務機等種類。總裁提及包括鴻海集團創辦人郭台銘、龍巖集團總裁李世聰都擁有灣流 G650ER 這類的遠端公務機，由於超中型和大客艙機種航程介於 8 至 10 小時以內，途中還得停飛加油，不過遠端公務機則能跨洋飛行，好比從台灣飛往美國東岸單程 16 小時，也無須擔心機油匱乏的問題。
因此在眾多機種中，品牌推薦包括灣流 G650、龐巴迪環球 Global 6000 皆屬遠端機種，4 個生活空間的長機身，總裁說到特別吸引大中華區旅客即便短程飛行，也渴望享受自在而寬敞的場域。
灣流G650可容納18名乘客，最高速度為 0.925 馬赫同時突破品牌自身紀錄，或躺或坐於手工縫製的座椅，低矮的機艙高度和隨時吹送的新鮮空氣，多達 16 個圓窗時刻更新腳下視野，減少飛行途中的不適感；而環球 Global 6000 也能容納 17 人，最高速則有 0.89 馬赫，內裝風格實踐簡約美學，可自由選擇木質或大理石地板變換整體氛圍，各項細節由人本衍生，像是隨時可至大行李箱取件，也為機組人員服務品質而特設專用休息區，刻意安排於駕駛艙與主客艙的廚房，留給乘客更加私密的生活空間。
VIP Global, a brand of commercial flight, was founded in 2008. After extensive searching for feedback from consumers, VIP Global observed the normal consuming state of private aircraft. If the consuming frequency is less than 500 hours per year, consumers “will not add the consuming value but become a liability.” This is why the “flight hours ordering mode” has become the biggest feature of the brand. The service provides each passenger the quota of 100 hours per year to any destination the passenger wants to go if he/she changed the flight plan three days in advance.
Jack Sun, the President of VIP Global, observed that in general the private aircraft apply the model of mutually-owned properties. He said in another way that “when everyone wants to go out on festivals, it is a big problem about who will use the properties in priority. In addition, at present, there are flight safety concerns because of the uneven flying time (years) of all aircraft in the market.” VIP Global insists on only using aircraft that have served for 5-6 years. Since its establishment, VIP Global has cooperated with over 7,800 private aircraft; this policy not only improves the aircraft utilization of cooperating manufacturers but also ensures an excellent flight safety quality.
VIP Global currently has a fleet of aircraft, including super medium, large cabins, and remote business aircraft. Sun mentioned that both Guo Tai-Ming, the founder of Foxconn Technology Group, and Li Shi-Cong, the President of Lung Yen Group, have the remote business jets such as Gulfstream G650ER ones. Since the flight distance of super medium and large-cabin jets is limited within 8-10 hours, they have to stop and refuel. However, remote business jets can fly across the oceans, such as a one-way 16-hour flight from Taiwan to the eastern coast of the United States, and it needs not to worry about the refueling issue.
Therefore, among the many jet models, the recommended brands include the Gulfstream G650 and Bombardier Global 6000, which are all the remote models, with a long cabin containing four living spaces. Sun said that it is particularly attractive to passengers in the Grand Chinese region; they are eager to enjoy a comfortable and spacious cabin even under short-way flights.
The Gulfstream G650 jet can accommodate 18 passengers with a maximum speed of 0.925 Mach, which breaks the brand’s own record; passengers can choose to lie down or sit on a hand-sewn seat. With low cabin height and fresh air blowing at any time. The Gulfstream G650 jet has up to 16 round windows to constantly update the vision under the passenger’s feet and reduce the discomfort during flight. The Global 6000 jet can also accommodate 17 passengers, with the maximum speed of 0.89 Mach; the interior style practices a simple aesthetics, customer can choose wood or marble floor to change the overall feeling in the cabin. All details are person-oriented; for example, the passenger can pick up items from the large trunk at any time. Special rest zones are specially designed aiming the crew service quality; they are deliberately arranged in the kitchens of the cockpit and main cabin, leaving passengers with more private space.
Now that the pandemic condition is not over yet, the amounts of passengers inquiring VIP Global business flights and medical charter flights in a single day are three times higher than before. The cabin is thoroughly disinfected; the crew and passengers are equipped with complete sets of protective equipment, and passengers can have a standard control process in every flight.
