Charter broker Air Partner has entered the flight-planning market with the creation of a new division called Flight-Operations.com. The venture is based at Air Partner’s headquarters near London Gatwick Airport. Flight-Operations.com is led by Tim Lester, the former deputy managing director of rival flight-planning company Baseops. The company is operational 24/7 and can help with complex overflight and landing permit procedures. It also arranges ground handling, fuel purchases and ground transportation/accommodations.
