Air Partner adds two offices

Air Partner has opened offices in Houston, USA and Singapore.

The Houston office opened in mid-February. The company’s other US locations include Fort Lauderdale, New York City, Washington DC, and Los Angeles.

Air Partner said its Houston branch will help the company increase its market share in the region's oil and gas industry, due to its proximity to the city’s oil cluster.

The Singapore office also opened in February and has a particular focus on Air Partner’s freight services.

The charter broker aims to grow its share of the Asia Pacific market with the expansion of its geographical footprint.

As part of this strategy, Air Partner recently appointed Oscar Thwin as Asia Pacific vice president of freight.
