It was Philip Huang, Managing director of JAS Taiwan, who had the great honor of representing JAS in receiving the 2017 Million Dollar Sales Award from Mr. Jack Chin – Deputy G.M. of China Airlines Taiwan on May 9, 2018.

Mr. Huang had to say this upon receiving the award:

"This annual award represents JAS Taiwan's solid business relationship with the number one national flag airline in Taiwan as well as their appreciation of JAS Taiwan for contributing to the large amount of air cargo tonnage exporting from Taiwan to worldwide destinations in the last year."

China Airlines in-service fleet has 87 aircrafts, including 69 passenger jets and 18 freighters that fly out to 151 destinations in 29 countries/districts (as of April 2018). Their overall air cargo loading tonnage is ranked within the Top 10 in the world annually. In terms of their reliable service, flight frequency, competitive rate, and space availability in peak season, JAS Taiwan selects China Airlines as one of its strategical business partners and have been offering their services to our valued customers since 2007. JAS is more than happy that our clients always gain the commercial advantage by using this  JAS partnership with China Airlines.

JAS takes pride in making a difference for our customers. Therefore, when a customer reached out to our team needing to move photovoltaic modules for aircraft the JAS Energy Solutions team in Brazil created a customized solution for this unique shipment.

Photovoltaic modules provide a sustainable energy source for powering aircraft. The team, with the support of the JAS Logistics Agent in Fortaleza, began moving the modules in November 2022 and has since cleared over half of the shipment.

In total, there will be 57 shipments (615 containers), totaling 10,421 pallets of solar panels destined for new solar plants in the state of Ceará.  

Brazil added more than 9 GW of solar power in 2022, which is the best year in the history of the sector, with a growth of more than 80% compared to 2021. Today, Ceará is the second largest energy producer in Brazil.
