Air Partner, a provider of private aviation services to industry, commerce, governments and private individuals worldwide, reported stronger than expected trading over the past eight weeks.
Trading in the commercial jet division was already significantly ahead of the prior year as of June 4, reflecting new business wins in the tour operator and oil and gas sectors. The private jet division was trading ahead of the prior year because of a focus on the U.S. and Europe.
As a result, the Air Partner board expects full-year profit for the year ending July 31 to be ahead of the prior year.
Results for this financial year will be reported Oct. 10.
