Air charter broker Chapman Freeborn has opened a new regional office in Houston, part of the global company’s Americas expansion program that also saw the establishment of a New York City office in August.

The Avia Solutions Group subsidiary’s headquarters is in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and it also has a location serving the Los Angeles area. Its Houston office is located near George Bush International Airport (KIAH) and the company said more locations are on the way.

“We are excited to establish our presence via a dedicated office in the Houston market to support our clients in the oil, gas, air logistics, and other industries based in the area,” said Chapman Freeborn president for the Americas David McCown. He added that as the company celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, the new office will allow it to enhance its on-the-ground support for cargo transitioning in and out of area airports.

“With our diverse array of charter offerings, we’ve seen tremendous growth in our private and cargo charter operations and aircraft, crew, maintenance, and insurance business segments in the southern and central U.S., as well as Mexico and Latin America,” McCown said.
