September 6 - Air Partner has expanded its UK freight team with the promotion of Clive Chalmers to UK freight manager.

Chalmers, a recent graduate of Air Partner's intensive two-year internal cross-division Management Training Scheme, reports to Richard Smith, group freight director, who can now concentrate solely on developing the company's worldwide freight strategy.

Prior to joining the MTS scheme Chalmers was a senior analyst in the Commercial Jets charter broking division organising flights on airliners for groups of every size. Prior to joining Air Partner in 1998, he was an operations officer with the former Stansted Airport-based charter carrier Classic Airways.

In his new role Chalmers' objectives are to develop the freight business by working closely with clients, prospects and cargo operators along with growing Air Partner Freight's market share.
