November 15 - As part of its expansion into North America, Hunt & Palmer Cargo Charters (HPCC) has appointed Platinum Air Cargo as its general sales agent (GSA) in the USA.

Platinum Air Cargo, formerly the US GSA for Lufthansa Cargo Charter, will actively market and sell Hunt & Palmer's cargo charter brokerage service in all ten of its gateway cities.

"The Hunt & Palmer brand is already well established in the USA for its passenger focused private jet charters, however the American markets also have considerable potential for our cargo services and the appointment of Platinum Cargo will enable us to capitalise on that," said HPCC's director, Jamie Peters.

Since HPCC's launch in 2012, the company has appointed a number of GSA's around the world as part of its strategy to establish itself in key global markets.

HPCC is a subsidiary of UK-based international air charter company, Hunt & Palmer PLC.

Platinum Air Cargo is owned by ATC Aviation Services USA, which is part of the ATC Aviation Services Group based in Frankfurt, Germany.
