Air Partner plc, a world leading provider of private aviation services, is relocating its UK headquarters this weekend to larger modern offices alongside London Gatwick Airport.
“Coinciding as it does with our 50th birthday, we are very excited about this relocation,” said Mark Briffa, Air Partner CEO. “It gives us a much more contemporary home, befitting our image and brand as a leading aviation company, a Royal Warrant holder and a plc that is fully listed on the London Stock Exchange. And as we expand our portfolio of products and services, it also gives us the advantage of having more room for the established international in-house training academy we operate for the Group’s 200-strong team.”
From next Monday (July 18) Air Partner’s head office location will be Air Partner plc, 2 City Place, Beehive Ring Road, Gatwick,West Sussex, RH6 0PA. All telephone and fax numbers, plus email addresses, will remain unchanged.
City Place is opposite The Beehive, Gatwick’s original terminal building, where Air Partner began trading and has been located within 1km ever since. From humble beginnings in 1961, the company has grown into one of the largest air charter organisers in the world. Serving governments, industry, commerce and individuals, its range of expertise covers commercial airliner and private jet ad hoc charter, freight charter, emergency evacuation planning, 24-hour operations and fuel reselling. The company also operates its own JetCard membership scheme, has an in-house travel agency and a 24-hour operations division.
Air Partner arranges around 15,000 business and leisure flights annually for a wide variety of reasons. The 24/7company has 20 offices worldwide in 16 countries spanning three continents, and its prestigious clients include six of the G8 governments, the UN, EU, NATO and the Red Cross.
