Air Partner, the London-based global aviation services group, said its first office in the Lone Star state, in this case, Houston, is now open. This comes on the heels of the company’s Los Angeles office launch in 2018, and adds to Air Partner’s presence in key markets across the United States, with offices currently located in Fort Lauderdale, New York City and Washington, D.C.
“We are excited to open an office in Houston as we expand our reach and services across the U.S., providing local Air Partner representation to both established and new customers,” said David McCown, president of Air Partner U.S. “Houston is one of the fastest-growing major cities in the United States and is a hotbed of economic activity. We see massive potential for growth in the region.”
The company’s global service offerings include air charter, cargo services, private air travel solutions, specialist travel management, emergency planning, aircraft remarketing and aviation safety consultancy and training, including air traffic control and wildlife management. The company said expanding into Houston gives Air Partner direct access to several major corporate centers such as downtown, uptown, Energy Corridor, Greenpoint, Westchase, The Woodlands (where its office is located), and Bay Area –home to 19 out of the 500 Fortune Companies’ headquarters.
This new office creates a wide range of opportunities for partnership and business relationships with corporations that require jet cards, private jet charter, group charter services (i.e. corporate shuttles, incentive trips) and air cargo charter. The Port of Houston leads the nation in break bulk cargo and is a top foreign trade zone, which will help Air Partner further extend its thriving large freight/cargo division. The Texas Gulf Coast handles more than $503 billion annually in the highly specialized logistics segment, which drives CRE activity in Houston.
Air Partner will also now be in closer proximity to Houston’s “oil cluster,” which will help the company grow and dominate in the Oil & Gas industry. Houston occupies a large component into the Oil and Gas industry, which will help expand Air Partner’s reach for its freight and corporate jet shuttle programs.
