Air Partner opens in LA

UK-headquartered charter broker Air Partner has opened a new office in Los Angeles, USA, which will serve the southern Californian and broader West Coast markets.

 

In its annual results for the year ended July 31, 2018, Air Partner reported record results across its US and freight departments.

 Air Partner’s freight department was boosted by a mix of charters carried out across the Caribbean to support the relief effort in the wake of hurricanes Irma and Maria and ongoing contracts in the Middle East.

Commenting on the company’s expansion in the USA, Mark Briffa, ceo of Air Partner, said: "Expanding our North American presence is a natural progression for Air Partner, as we see significant potential for growth given the diversity of industries that would benefit from our services and capabilities in private jets, commercial jets and freight.”
