Issued by On Air Dining.
November 10, 2014
On Air Dining, the elite culinary service that provides a fine dining experience in the air, is pleased to announce the appointment of Robin Southwell as its new chairman.
After nearly a decade leading Airbus Group UK, formerly EADS, and 20-plus years in senior management at British Aerospace, Robin stepped down in September stating he will pursue new business interests, away from the defence arena. As a prolific aerospace and business professional, and with fine food and aviation close to his heart, he will be a strong business mentor and investment partner to the company's ceo Daniel Hulme, a young entrepreneur, still in his 30s.
Robin's involvement and investment in the business has already enabled On Air Dining to establish a new home at London Stansted Airport's Diamond Hangar. The new facility features a state-of-the-art kitchen and designer tasting room. Recognising the importance of enhancing the passenger experience, On Air Dining will also be showcasing a range of luxury products to complement its inflight dining service.
On Air Dining caters for private business aviation clients. Its portfolio includes a number of Europe's leading operators including ExecuJet, GainJet and Tyrolean Jet Services.
Its new base gives the company improved access to wide-bodied executive jets that are regularly operating in and out of London Stansted Airport and from where On Air Dining has set its sights for future expansion.
Robin has also offered to help in the On Air Dining kitchen in order to get fully immersed in the business.
