Hunt & Palmer posts top 2021 results
Record results for 2021 show Hunt & Palmer in a stronger position than ever, both in terms of resources and finances, to press ahead with plans for further growth over the next few years.

Aircraft charter specialist Hunt & Palmer has posted record results for the 2021 financial period, with group turnover in excess of £80,000,000 despite the turmoil that has affected the aviation and travel industries globally since the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020.

The Hunt & Palmer Group, which includes several entities of the brand together with renowned music tour business Premier Aviation (UK) Ltd, has emerged intact from the crisis that gripped the world for almost two years and with its overall business increased by more than 30 per cent over that realised in 2019.

“The Hunt & Palmer board is extremely pleased with these results, and we see this achievement as endorsement of our long held strategies for building a robust and profitable business even in the most challenging circumstances,” says main board director Mark Jenkinson.

These results are no flash in the pan for Hunt & Palmer, which is one of the industry’s most established broking companies, and 2022 is already on course to exceed last year’s figures.

“Just as noteworthy,” Jenkinson continues, “is that we have retained all of our broking and flight administration staff throughout the Covid pandemic, in contrast to the significant layoffs by airlines, airports and other aviation related businesses during the same period. This means that the professional skills and experience within our teams, which take years to acquire and which are so fundamental to the continued success of our business, have not been lost. Consequently we are now in a stronger position than ever, both in terms of resources and finances, to press ahead with our plans for further growth over the next few years.”
