Air Partner set to double Middle East workforce
Air Partner has expanded its office in Dubai as part of its plans to double its workforce in the Middle East and grow its market share in the region.

Aviation services group Air Partner has expanded its office in Jumeirah Lake Towers, Dubai, from where it offers its full suite of charter solutions comprising group charter, private jets and cargo, and offers clients the group's consulting and training services in aviation safety management and fatigue risk management.

Customers also have access to Air Partner's full 24 hour flight operations centre, ensuring they have instant, year-round access to the group's services and expertise, wherever they are in the world and whatever the time.

The expansion follows significant growth in private jet travel during the pandemic as customers sought comfort, convenience, flexibility and safety that cannot be matched with commercial flights. The group expects demand to continue as coronavirus restrictions ease, and flexible working becomes more commonplace globally, giving high net worth expats the opportunity to travel more often or use a vacation home for longer periods of time.

Requests for Air Partner's charter services have also increased as weddings and sporting events return, giving family and friends the opportunity to coincide hotel check in and check out times with event times. The company anticipates that growth in leisure travel will continue, as demand for destination weddings in India alone has soared by 62 per cent according to recent research, and Air Partner's services offer onboard catering or aircraft interior branding tailored to the wedding theme.

As the most recent data on global air cargo markets by IATA demonstrates the industry's resilience amid economic uncertainties, Air Partner looks forward to growing its client base across its full suite of solutions as it continues to invest for growth in the Middle East.

President of international charter and services Mark Briffa says: “We are delighted to have expanded our office in Dubai in line with our strategy to continue to grow our presence in the region. We look forward to doubling our workforce in the Middle East over the next year as we continue to support more customers with our extensive portfolio of services.”
