New Jersey, US

Aircraft charter broker Chapman Freeborn has expanded its presence in the Americas by opening a new northeast US office.

The company already has three other offices in the US: Los Angeles, Houston and Fort Lauderdale.

Chapman Freeborn said the office, which is located in Parsippany, New Jersey, will help it to “meet the increasing demands of the air charter sector and support existing customers in the US market”.

Ben Hampton has been appointed to lead the office as northeast US director of cargo.

Hampton, who has more than 10 years of experience in the aviation sector, was previously director of sales for a part 135 operator and prior to that was the assistant director of US cargo for a global charter brokerage.

Neil Dursley, chief commercial officer at Chapman Freeborn, commented: “I’m delighted to have Hampton join Chapman Freeborn and head up our Northeast office.

“It’s great news for us but also for customers with urgent needs like automotive and AOG shipments and for new customers nationwide who want to get their products into key markets around the world.”

Hampton added: “Chapman Freeborn is considered the gold standard in global charters and I’m thrilled to be joining the team to build on that reputation here in the US.”

“We’ll be neighbours with some of the largest freight forwarders in the world and we’ll be introducing ourselves to new customers nationwide.”

Chapman Freeborn said the northeast US office will also support passenger charter sales and the long-term growth plans of Magma Aviation’s scheduled service operations and its fleet of B747 freighters.
