At the core of our strategy, we aim to continue to grow our world-class global aviation services group to meet our customers’ ever‑evolving needs. Working in partnership with our clients, suppliers and employees, we are dedicated to delivering tailored solutions and the very best service. Our strategy is underpinned by our culture, to ensure that we put the customer at the heart of everything we do.
Our business leaders have considerable expertise in the fast evolving, high growth aviation sector. Over almost 60 years in operation, we have built long-term relationships and a robust reputation within the industry. We have developed a market-leading Charter business and a Safety & Security division which is amongst the world’s most influential in aviation safety.
We use our expertise to provide innovative solutions that exceed our customers’ needs, reinforcing our brand reputation, growing sales and profits and delivering long-term value.
Our customers are at the heart of every decision we make. We are proud of our global, blue-chip customer base which spans multiple sectors as well as military and civil organisations. Within this, no one customer makes up more than 10% of gross profits on our run rate business.
As well as a firm focus on performing well today, Air Partner plans and acts for the long-term. We aim to grow a global aviation services group, in line with our customers’ needs, consistently putting customers first to drive shareholder returns.
We aim to grow organically by capitalising on global aviation market opportunities, cross-selling our services between divisions, driving internal efficiencies and investing appropriately. We are also successfully diversifying earnings with investment in the less cyclical Safety & Security division.
