Global aviation services group Air Partner has appointed Andrew Holmes as vice president of cargo, US.

Holmes will oversee all day-to-day operations of the company’s cargo division in the US.

Holmes’ career in ad-hoc aviation started in 2000, based in Ostend, Belgium as a flight manager and an operations assistant. 

Holmes initially joined Air Partner as account manager for the US cargo division in early 2021.

His previous experience includes running an 18-month programme of multi-leg cargo flights to collect PCR tests for weekend delivery to a San Diego-based lab amid the pandemic; contracting multiple flights to carry Covid vaccines for distribution around the world and operating weekly flights (for seven months) to South America with spare parts to keep a manufacturing plant in operation.

“Andrew’s appointment comes at a pivotal moment for the growth of Air Partner’s air cargo charter operations in the US as we focus on aligning our service delivery globally,” commented Pierre Van Der Stichele, vice president cargo, global.

“His experience and expertise lend themselves to creating a strong client relationship built on trust and transparency. That is what differentiates Air Partner when companies are weighing the benefits of air cargo charter versus other delivery methods.

“It’s a fine balance between growth and personalised service, and his vision and approach account for both aligning our business goals and meeting our client’s unique needs.”

Holmes commented, “My goal is to make Air Partner a household name in air cargo charter in the US, and the best way to do that is by offering a personal touch and standout solutions for clientele.”
