Air Partner’s freight division reports another record year in 2018
May 31, 2019: UK-based aviation services provider Air Partner has reported another good year for its freight division.
This is the second year that the company’s freight division has reported record profits. The gross profit was up 45.3 percent to £4.9 million, accounting for 13.8 percent of the group’s overall gross profit.
The group has invested in people across its regional offices, expanded its team in Turkey and established a new team in the US, over the course of the last financial year.
Cargo work has been carried out across a range of sectors, including automotive, aid, aerospace and energy, with customer requirements ranging from the transportation of a small box via Air Partner’s growing on-board courier service to chartering the largest aircraft in the world, the An-225.
Particularly, the company informed that the introduction of a freight offering in Fort Lauderdale helped to push Freight gross profit and customer numbers to their highest ever level. The Fort Lauderdale team witnessed a busy year working on numerous projects, including the co-ordination of 30 charters carrying humanitarian aid to Guam and Saipan during the typhoon season.
Outside of the US, the Turkey office arranged the transportation of 500 tonnes of construction materials to West Africa and the UK benefited from its work supporting airlines in their aircraft on ground (AOG) recovery, as well as government flying.
The German office also continued to see high levels of activity from the automotive sector and delivered its 11th consecutive year of growth.
Furthermore, Air Partner opened two new offices in Singapore and Houston in early 2019, both of which offer freight services, thereby broadening the division’s geographic reach even further.
Mike Hill, director of Freight at Air Partner commented: “The new offices have created a wealth of exciting cargo opportunities across a range of sectors and regions, and we look forward to capitalising on these in the coming months. As always, we remain committed to delivering unparalleled levels of service while further growing our already enviable customer base.”
Air Partner Freight has cargo specialists in the UK, USA, Germany, France, Turkey and Singapore, who provide strength of knowledge by utilising all types of aircraft for tailored cargo charter services.
