Dubai-headquartered Prime Trip Support and Portugal-based Wexjet Aviation have created a strategic alliance to provide increased support for clients flying globally. The partnership makes Wexjet the preferred ground handling company for Prime Trip Support’s clients throughout Portugal and the Azores, while Prime Trip Support will exclusively support Wexjet's fleet of managed aircraft with its international trip support and global logistics needs.

The alliance will provide Prime Trip Support clients with ground handling, fuel, catering and flight services throughout Portugal and the Azores, and clients will have the advantage of receiving personalised and tailored services, including, but not limited to, short notice arrangements for diverting flights or emergency landings. Wexjet clients flying outside of Portuguese territories will rely on the global trip planning and fuel experience of Prime Trip Support.

“Due to its unique strategic position, countless operators choose to stop in the Azores when making trans-Atlantic journeys. These companies rely on the fast, reliable and safe services provided by Wexjet for all their tech stop needs,” says PTS founder and CEO Ammar Alhussari. “We are delighted to partner with a company that can service our customers with the level of support they demand while flying through Portugal and these island territories.”

"We celebrate this partnership with Prime Trip Support as it expands our network of connections around the world,” adds Wexjet CEO Ricardo Cabral. “We look forward to serving all those who cross the Atlantic and require quality ground handling services around the clock.”

The two companies plan on expanding this relationship to include more strategic endeavours in the near future.
