Air Partner expands Dubai office


Air Partner has expanded its office in Dubai as part of its plans to double its staff in the Middle East.

The office, which is in Jumeirah Lake Towers, offers customers charter, consulting and training services. Clients also have access to the group’s 24-hour flight operations centre for year-round access to the group’s service.

The company said it expects demand to continue as coronavirus restrictions ease and flexible working becomes more commonplace, while travel for leisure continues to grow.

Mark Briffa, president of International Charter and Services, Air Partner, said the expansion is in line with the group’s strategy to grow its presence in the region. He said: “We look forward to doubling our workforce in the Middle East over the next year as we continue to support more customers with our extensive portfolio of services.”

The Dubai office was first opened three years ago, headed up by Jobby George, general manager, Middle East.

In September, Air Partner announced that it had increased its carbon offsetting by 65% over the past year, following its opt-out strategy that automatically enrolls clients to the firm’s offsetting scheme.
