Oscar Thwin

Global aviation services group Air Partner has appointed Oscar Thwin as Asia Pacific vice president of freight, joining the group’s recently opened office in Singapore.

Thwin will report directly to Mike Hill, director – group freight. This expansion in Singapore follows growth in the US, with the opening of offices in Los Angeles in 2018 and Houston in mid-February.

Thwin has 36 years of experience working in the aviation industry and has held a wide variety of roles in management, sales and operations.

Prior to joining Air Partner, he held the role of station manager for Airline Network Services in Chicago and has also previously worked for Singapore Airlines, Cargo Airport Services and Nippon Cargo.

Thwin said that the Asia Pacific region “offers a number of opportunities,” adding: “I look forward to working closely with Mike to build on the freight team’s success globally and deliver the outstanding service that our clients have come to expect from us.”

Hill said: “I am pleased to welcome Oscar to Air Partner. His experience and strong freight forwarder relationships will be invaluable as we look to grow our client base in Asia Pacific, so that even more organisations can benefit from our wide range of cargo services – from outsize shipments to On board courier (OBC) requests.

“This latest milestone of expanding our regional reach follows a record 2017 and strong performance in the first half of 2018.”

Air Partner Freight provides bespoke air charter solutions to meet a wide range of cargo charter needs.
