Air Partner opens office in LA

Posted 13 June 2018 · Add Comment

Air Partner plc is opening of a new office in Los Angeles (LA), in line with its strategy to grow its geographical footprint.



The office, which opened on 4 June 2018, will service southern California and the broader West Coast markets, strengthening Air Partner's existing US network, which includes New York, Fort Lauderdale and Washington D.C.

The announcement of the LA office coincides with Air Partner reporting strong trading in the US as part of its Full Year results, released on Monday 11 June 2018. The Group's US-based Commercial Jets, Private Jets and Freight charter divisions all performed well.

Air Partner's Private Jets business reported an 80% rise in overall US customer numbers, driven by last year's New York office expansion, the recruitment of new management and the Air Partner JetCard being recognised as the most flexible US membership programme by independent aviation consultancy Conklin & de Decker for the fourth consecutive year.

Meanwhile, the Commercial Jets and Freight divisions were kept busy responding to customers' needs in the face of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, which hit the US and the Caribbean in September.

Air Partner's product offering has seen strong demand on the west coast, particularly for its Private Jets product, which offers exceptional customer service. A full 24-hour flight operations centre ensures customers have instant, year-round access to the Group's services, wherever they are in the world and whatever the time.

Commenting on the expansion, Mark Briffa, CEO of Air Partner, said: "We are delighted to have opened an office in Los Angeles, providing local Air Partner representation to our established customers, and enabling us to deliver our services the length and breadth of the West Coast. 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.

Air Partner's Los Angeles office will also introduce JetCard, our seamless private jet solution, to the West Coast private client and business communities. Offering fixed hourly rates, guaranteed availability, a global reach and no monthly management fees or fuel surcharges - while also being fully refundable on demand - we are confident that JetCard will be a key driver in growing our share of the US private jet market."

Air Partner's service offering includes air charter, private air travel solutions, specialist travel management, emergency planning, aircraft remarketing and aviation safety consultancy and training, including air traffic control and wildlife management.
