Significant growth leads to senior promotion at Air Partner Freight

November 18 - International charter broker Air Partner has promoted freight manager Richard Smith to director of Group Freight.

After five years with the company, Smith has "transformed the Freight division from a small specialised operation serving a handful of clients into the global player it is today," says the company.

Based at Air Partner's London Gatwick headquarters, Smith will head an expanding freight team with in-house cargo specialists in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and USA based in London, Cologne, Paris, Tokyo, Dubai and Fort Lauderdale. 

"When I joined Air Partner in 2004, we provided specialised cargo charters to a small number of clients. In developing our freight business, my aim has been to challenge our more long-established cargo charter competitors and I feel we are now a major player in this market," said Smith. "Our strategy is to continue this development and to provide excellent service to as many clients as possible, globally."

Prior to joining Air Partner, he spent 16 years working for cargo charter operators, three of which were spent in Singapore where he managed a chartered Hercules aircraft.
