London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 12, 2011 -- Air Partner plc, a world leading provider of private aviation services, is relocating its UK headquarters this weekend to larger modern offices alongside London Gatwick Airport.
"Coinciding as it does with our 50th birthday, we are very excited about this relocation," said Mark Briffa, Air Partner CEO. "It gives us a much more contemporary home, befitting our image and brand as a leading aviation company, a Royal Warrant holder and a plc that is fully listed on the London Stock Exchange. And as we expand our portfolio of products and services, it also gives us the advantage of having more room for the established international in-house training academy we operate for the Group's 200-stong team."
From next Monday (July 18) Air Partner's head office location will be:
Air Partner plc
2 City Place
Beehive Ring Road
All telephone and fax numbers, plus email addresses, will remain unchanged.
