International air charter provider Air Partner has expanded its North American presence with the opening of a west coast operation in Los Angeles, California.
The office began trading on February 1 and forms part of Air Partner’s global strategy of opening in key business centres. It is the company’s 20th office worldwide and its fourth in the USA, joining those on the east coast in Fort Lauderdale, Washington DC and New York.
Air Partner has a policy of employing local specialists with global expertise and has appointed Tana Lantry to head up the LA operation as Director of Sales. Tana has an extensive background in aviation and learnt to fly before learning to drive. She gained a degree in Global Security and Intelligence from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, plus a minor in Asian studies, and went on to spend a year in Beijing teaching at the BeiHang University Flight College. On her return to the US Tana joined PrimeJet as a Charter Sales Coordinator prior to moving to Air Partner.
