Cabot to be renamed Air Partner
16 / 02 / 2017
Cabot Aviation will be rebranded as Air Partner to mirror the name of its parent company.
Air Partner acquired aircraft remarketing agent Cabot Aviation in May 2015 and said the re-branding is a natural progression in the integration process.
Cabot Aviation will become part of Air Partner’s newly-formed Aircraft remarketing division, holding responsibility for all aircraft remarketing (commercial and private), dry leasing and ACMI within the Air Partner group globally.
The division will continue to operate out of Air Partner’s head office in Gatwick along with its offices in the US and Singapore, and there will be no change to day-to-day activities.
Tony Whitty, managing director at the company formerly known as Cabot Aviation, said: “The integration of Cabot into the Air Partner group has gone extremely well, and we believe the time is now right to take the Air Partner name and brand.
"Since the acquisition, we have gone from strength to strength, winning a number of blue-chip customers, and we are now looking to further build on this as Air Partner.”
Mark Briffa, chief executive of Air Partner, added: “We have been pleased with Cabot’s performance since they came on board back in 2015, and they have become an integral part of the Air Partner family. This move is the next logical step for us as we grow our brand and extend our customer offering in line with our strategy to build a world-class aviation services group.”
