Air Partner has expanded its global footprint with the opening of an office in Dubai, the UK-based business aviation services provider announced today. It is the 13th international office for Air Partner and its first in the Middle East, where it aims to establish and grow its foothold in the region.
The new office is located in the Dubai Multi Commodities Center and will offer Air Partner's suite of charter services, including private, group, and cargo charter, as well as consulting and training services in aviation safety management and fatigue risk management. Heading the office is general manager Jobby George, who was most recently commercial manager for the Middle East and India for Chapman Freeborn in Dubai. George also previously held sales and finance positions at Air Partner for five years.
“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,” said Air Partner CEO Mark Briffa. “We see a wealth of opportunity, both in Dubai itself and in the surrounding areas, and are excited about our future in the Middle Eastern market.”
