Global aviation service group Air Partner has expanded its operation to the Middle East with a new office in Dubai.

Situated in Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC), the new office offers the company’s Group Charter, Private Jets and Freight charter solutions. It will be overseen by general manager Jobby George.

The clients can also avail the group’s consulting and training services in aviation safety management and fatigue risk management.

Air Partner CEO Mark Briffa said: “We are delighted to have opened an office in Dubai in line with our strategy to grow our global footprint and expand our reach beyond our established markets.

“Dubai is one of the world’s leading financial hubs and so it was a logical step for us to establish our first office in the Middle East here, given the range of sectors and customers that will benefit from our extensive portfolio of services.

“We see a wealth of opportunity, both in Dubai itself and the surrounding areas, and are excited about our future in the Middle Eastern market. It’s an exciting time for the city as it gears up for Expo 2020 Dubai next year and we look forward to being part of it as we support new and existing customers.”

The Dubai office is part of Air Partner investment for ‘future organic growth’.
