Avia Solutions Group, a group of business aviation companies, received the 'Golden Chariot' public award for the outstanding performance in international transport industry in Russia. On the 12th of September 2012 the award was presented to Avia Solutions Group chairman of the board Gediminas Ziemelis in Kremlin Palace, Moscow.
„We highly appreciate the fact, that Avia Solutions Group was honoured with the international transport industry public award „Golden Chariot". This year has so far been one of the most innovative for Avia Solutions Group. We have extended our capabilities in Central and Eastern Europe as well as the CIS region. I believe that our top-level technical personnel, highly skilled risk management team, the necessary infrastructure, a wide spectrum of services provided internationally, flexibility of the company and mainly attention to detail are the main factors that make Avia Solutions Group exceptionally attractive in the international aviation market. We consider every client to be unique and worthy of services that are carefully designed to fulfil individual needs and meet the highest standards. We can proudly say that we play an important role in the Russian aviation sector, as well as work towards improving international relationships" – says G.Ziemelis.
According to G.Ziemelis, although Avia Solutions Group is one of the largest companies in Eastern Europe, it is not very large on the Russian scale. Nevertheless the company largely contributes to accelerating the development of the fleet, training professionals, maintaining the existing aircraft and consulting on Russian aircraft fleet changing to western ones.
International transport awards "Golden Chariot" were established in 2005 by the Russian Duma and the Ministry of Transport. The project was launched in order to contribute to the development of transport companies, encourage innovations and strengthen international communication among different economic sectors. This year the winner received the seventh 'Golden Chariot'.
Last year Avia Solutions Group owned MRO service provider FL Technics was recognised for the performance in the field of aircraft maintenance. Additionally, Gediminas Ziemelis, the Board Chairman of Avia Solutions Group, was named 'Personality of the Year'. These titles were given by Aviaport.ru, an influential Russian aviation website, and Vzlet magazine that rated the major Russian aviation events and best aviation businesses in 2010.
