Air Partner: Houston, we have a new office

Global aviation services group Air Partner has opened new offices in Houston and Singapore, further extending its global reach.

The company currently has US offices located in Fort Lauderdale, New York City, Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles, with the latter opened in 2018.

A spokesperson for Air Partner said that the Port of Houston “leads the nation” in break bulk cargo and is a top foreign trade zone, which will help Air Partner “further extend its thriving large freight division”.

The company will also be closer to Houston’s oil cluster, helping it to take a greater share of the oil and gas industry in the region.

The Singapore office has a particular focus on Air Partner’s freight and remarketing services. The freight team has already grown its headcount there with the recent appointment of Oscar Thwin as Asia Pacific vice president of freight.

Added the spokesperson: “Air Partner has had a presence in Singapore since 2015, but is now sharpening its focus on growing its share of the Asia Pacific market, in line with its strategy to expand its geographical footprint beyond its more established markets.”

Mark Briffa, chief executive of Air Partner, said: “The extension of our international office network further supports our long-term growth strategy. I am very pleased to be building on our existing success in the United States by expanding our presence in the country, as well as opening a new office in Singapore.

“We are always looking to extend our reach and services across the globe to meet our customers’ diverse aviation needs, and both Houston and Singapore are thriving economic centres with huge potential. We look forward to supporting established and new customers from our recently opened offices.”
