Air Partner, the global aviation services group, recently signed a ten-week contract with a multi-national oil company. Air Partner will charter flights to transport oil workers to and from the Netherlands twice a week for ten weeks, departing from Aberdeen.
Air Partner has also recently announced that Baines Simmons, the world leading aviation safety consultancy it acquired in August this year, is to offer Air Partner’s Oil & Gas clients bespoke safety and airworthiness audits and assessment services. This added-value arrangement – a first for the offshore charter jet industry – was met with enthusiasm by many companies at Offshore Europe, who were impressed with the Group’s focus on safety.
Mark Briffa, CEO at the Air Partner Group, commented: “We are very proud of the work we do in the Oil & Gas sector and this contract is another feather in our cap. Air Partner arranges charters to transport crew to and from oil rigs in the world’s most remote locations and we do this every day. Following our recent acquisition of Baines Simmons, we have been able to extend our client offering to include aviation safety consulting and we are delighted with the feedback we have received so far. We look forward to leveraging our combined expertise, resources and experience to offer Oil & Gas clients the most reliable efficient and comprehensive service possible.”
The Air Partner Group has extensive, proven and trusted experience in the planning, execution and management of aircraft charter for oil, gas and mining industries around the world. The Group has Emergency Planning contracts with four of the ten largest Oil & Gas companies in the world and has completed numerous global contracts for the Oil & Gas industry.
