Air Partner issues pre-close trading update

What started as a difficult year with accounting questions is turning into a stellar year for U.K.-based Air Partner, helped by its U.S. jet card business

 

Yesterday, Air Partner plc released a trading update for the six months ended 31 July 2018.  It is in advance of a detailed report that will be provided with the interim results, which will be released on 27 September 2018.

Private jet broker Wijet says it is continuing its plans to restructure

The HondaJet cabin measures 222 cubic feet

The European private jet broker nee operator says it is still moving forward in its plans to develop a new business plan

 

While it’s not clear that the company is actively taking reservations for immediate travel, its management is saying the negative vibes are from former employees and competitors. It also apparently retains its relationship with Air France which is still featured both on its website and that of the airline, although it also still has a link to its now inactive air operator’s certificate that it gave back when it closed its U.K. subsidiary earlier this summer.
