Air Partner opens office in Johannesburg
Air Partner has established its first physical presence in South Africa, with a Johannesburg sales office that will provide localised support to freight clients within the region.
The expansion follows record growth of the freight division over the last three years and will be overseen by newly appointed cargo sales manager Fred Du Plessis. Working alongside local freight forwarders, Air Partner will be looking to expand on Air Partner charter and on board courier (OBC) business in the region, aided by
Du Plessis' extensive experience of developing clientele in Africa. Mike Hill, group director of freight: "I am delighted that we have found exactly the right person to lead the way for us in the local market. Du Plessis' past career in freight handling and aircraft charter operations is second to none, and he brings very valuable experience to the wider Air Partner team." (mw)
