Joseph Amissah is the founder of Blue Cube Aviation and decided to set up the company to meet the growing demand for International private jet travel, for clients seeking an alternative form of transportation other than commercial airlines. Recently, the company has seen a sharp rise in the number of charter request due to the increasing number of clients wishing to escape the inconvenience of flight delays, and the hassle factor of increased security checks. They want to fly direct, do their business, and be back at the earliest opportunity. Blue Cube Aviation’s service allows them this possibility. What is it that you do exactly?
At present I am busy setting up our European offices in Monaco, Istanbul, Marbella and Moscow, which will come under the umbrella of our UK Head Office located in Pinewood Film Studios. My time is also spent planning the various International launches where we will be promoting Blue Cube Aviation and its services.What do you enjoy most about what you do?
I have always had a passion for aviation ever since I was a child. Simply being involved in the industry brings me the most satisfaction. Especially as my father was a senior manager for a state owned airline. I see it as kind of continuing a family tradition, which I hope that one day, one of my sons will take on from me. I love being able to visit the hangar, and could quite easily spend the whole day just walking around the aircraft that are in Blue Cube Aviation fleet.What would you say are the 3 best places you’ve ever stayed?
Stockholm – I lived there for approximately 3 years, and loved every moment. I found the Swedes to be very warm and friendly. I try to get back out there as often as I can. Can highly recommend the Nordic Light Hotel. Miami – Wow… what a city!!! Stayed at the Mondrian Hotel which was just pure luxury! Tokyo – Spent one glorious week in Tokyo a few years ago, and have it at the top of my ‘places to visit again’ list. Such a vibrant city.What’s been your most memorable dining experience to date?
As I have a home in the South of Spain (Marbella), I guess that I am spoilt when it comes to fantastic fresh seafood. There is a great beach restaurant (chiringuito) located in Marbella called Victors Beach where my fiancé and I usually spend our Saturday afternoons. It’s great because it’s located right on the beach, where on a clear day you actually get to see the peaks of the Atlas mountains in Morocco in the far distance. The restaurant is always full of locals, which adds to the atmosphere.Have you rubbed shoulders with the rich and famous, either through your work or your travels?
It’s hard to be involved in the private jet industry and not come into contact with the rich and famous! It’s almost like an occupational hazard :-) With our UK office located in Pinewood Film Studios, we are responsible for making travel arrangements for a number of A-List UK and US celebrities. The important thing is not to get star struck, and focus on getting them to their destination with the minimum amount of fuss as possible.What currently ranks highest on your travel wishlist?
Other than another trip out to Tokyo, I really want to visit the Huvafen Fushi resort out in the Maldives. That for me is the epitome of paradise on earth.Thank you, Joseph. And good luck with getting Blue Cube Aviation on the map.
