London's The Jet Business has joined the International Aircraft Dealers Association (IADA), a move that officials said will help increase the scope of the business jet broker organization’s leadership overseas.

“The Jet Business represents an international approach that expands the influence of IADA’s network of business jet dealers and transaction experts,” said IADA executive director Wayne Starling. “Our accredited dealers and their certified aircraft brokers are simply the best in the world and positioned to be of the utmost benefit to their clients through transparency and focus on ethical transactions.”

Founded by CEO Steve Varsano, The Jet Business operates a corporate aviation showroom in the tony Mayfair neighborhood that features a full-size mockup of an Airbus ACJ319 and a 40-foot video wall that can display and compare full-size cross sections of business jets, including ACJs, BBJs, Legacy 650s, Gulfstream G700s, and Bombardier Global 7500s.

Nearly all IADA-accredited dealers do business in North America while 56 percent of them operate in Europe. Forty-four percent of IADA brokers work in Latin America and 42 percent of them are active in the Asia-Pacific region. Thirty-nine percent operate in the Middle East and Africa.
