The U.K.-based seller of jet cards and on-demand charter has opened its first office in Texas.

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.

Air Partner expects pre-tax profit of at least £5.8m ($7.6 million)

Who pays for deicing a private jet? With some programs you do!

Deicing can run up to $10,000 per incidence, so if you are doing a lot of winter flying, it’s something you should consider when comparing jet cards

 

If you’ve mainly flown commercially, on a corporate jet or with friends, you may not have thought about deicing in terms of who’s paying for it. So you bought a jet card. Congratulations – you just made your life easier for you and whoever will be flying with you! As you sit in the FBO on a cold winter’s day and watch the truck pull up next to your jet, you might think, “Geez, I’m glad I’m not that guy on the boom lift. It must be cold up there!” You may not have realized that what was coming out of the hose was not just fluid, but money, possibly yours. Chances are you won’t find out about it until you get your monthly statement weeks late. I say possibly because some jet card programs include deicing and others don’t.

In what Air Partner CEO Mark Briffa described as a “solid first half performance” the publicly traded seller of aviation services, including on-demand charter and jet cards said it earned a gross profit of £18.0 million, six-tenths of a percent below the same period in 2017. Underlying profit before tax of £4.2m, was a year-on-year increase of 2.4% while statutory profit before tax of £2.6m was £1.1m lower than the previous year driven by the associated costs of the company’s accounting review concluded earlier this year. In August, the company had offered its latest update.
