Air Partner enjoys multi-celebrations at ACE

Tuesday 10th May 2011

Air Partner, which celebrates its 50th anniversary next month, has sent a 12-strong delegation to this year's Air Cargo Europe exhibition and conference where it is showcasing the company's new eye-catching freight stand. The three-day event in Munich, Germany, started today (May 10).

The new trade display features an image of the world's only Antonov 225 operated by Ukrainian airline Antonov Airlines. It is pictured being loaded with 145 tonnes of humanitarian aid and relief equipment when the company chartered the giant jet for a mission to Japan following the devastating earthquake and tsunami in March.

In recent months, Air Partner Freight has expanded its teams in the UK, USA, UAE and Germany. New members being introduced to the industry during ACE are Emily Brient and Mark Turner from the UK and Stefanie Müller from Germany. Buyers and suppliers are invited to meet the team and enjoy a celebratory drink at the Air Partner stand 421 in Hall A4.

"Air Partner Freight has had a remarkable start to 2011," said Richard Smith, Group Freight Director. "Our Turkish operation celebrated its first anniversary in February with sales that exceeded expectations and our expansion in key geographic markets continues. Additionally, organising charter flights to carry a wide range of supplies to areas around the world affected by natural disasters and political unrest continues to keep us busy 24/7."

Currently, Air Partner has freight teams in seven worldwide locations: UK, Germany, France, Turkey, the USA, Japan, Hong Kong and the UAE. Expansion into new markets, including India and China, is planned.

ACE runs alongside the Transport Logistics event from May 10-13. They make up the biggest exhibition of logistics companies in the world and take place once every two years.
