London-based Dominvs Aviation is building on its air charter capabilities with the incorporation of Azzura Charters into its business. The merged entity helps Dominvs Aviation to continue to build on its business aircraft charter expertise and experience, the company said.
Melanie Blackman, who has led Azzura Charters for the past seven years, is joining the Dominvs team as head of charter services. In that role, she is managing day-to-day charter sales and operations for Dominvs's owned and managed fleet, along with brokerage of partner jets and helicopters.
Part of the Dominvs Group, Dominvs Aviation was launched a year ago by its CEO, Chris Mace, and Dominvs Group chairman Sukhpal Ahluwalia to provide a range of business aircraft sales, charter, and asset-management services. Mace had previously founded charter operator SaxonAir.
Teaming with Dominvs Group gives the business aviation services startup Azzura a strong backer—the privately-owned Dominvs Group has more than £1 billion ($1.23 billion) under management in the hotel, residential, and commercial real-estate sectors in the UK.
