A good sole agency contract win from the Saudi's. I can't imagine there would be such good fortune to find anyone in the market to buy all 15 passenger jets of this size though... presumably it will take some time and will probably need to find several buyers. The share price seems to be making a full recovery from it's slide and recent news would suggest that all divisions of the company are expanding quite rapidly... if that also includes the main brokerage side gaining some new growth rather than relying on just increasing the margins through renewals from existing clients... then next months TS could provide a considerable further boost from present levels.
Well that's a nice bounce after hovering near 100p. Must admit I was close to bailing out but couldn't see any reason for the drop so stuck with it. Glad I did at the mo but this is a volatile stock. Let's hope we can push on up through recent highs. GLA CM

Great news ! RNS Number : 9443L 25 July 2017 AIR PARTNER PLC Air Partner is appointed by Saudi Arabian Airlines as its exclusive remarketing agent Air Partner's Aircraft Remarketing division (formerly Cabot Aviation), a leading aircraft remarketing agent, is pleased to announce that it has been appointed by Saudi Arabian Airlines ("Saudia") as its exclusive remarketing agent in respect of fifteen Boeing 777-200ER aircraft. These state-of-the-art Boeing aircraft were purchased from Boeing and delivered new to Saudia from 1997 onwards. They are powered by GE90 engines and have a total of 232 seats in a tri-class configuration layout, comprised of 24 First Class seats, 38 Business Class and 170 Economy seats. Saudia is undergoing a revitalisation of its fleet, which includes phasing out these Boeing 777-200ER aircraft as it makes room for higher-density aircraft to align with its upcoming network growth plans on both regional and international routes. As part of the airline's SV2020 Transformation Plan, multiple new aircraft are joining the Saudia fleet monthly, allowing the carrier to optimise its network to offer increased capacity on existing routes, and also to introduce new destinations. The ongoing fleet investment will bring the airline's average aircraft age to 3.75 years by the end of this year, which is a key element of Saudia's targeted strategy to operate one of the youngest fleets in the skies. By 2020, the airline is set to operate 200 aircraft in its fleet. New aircraft to be delivered to Saudia include: A330-300s, B787-9s and B777-300ERs. Saudia currently operates to 86 destinations across four continents from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. At the 2017 Skytrax Awards held at the Paris Air Show in June, Saudia was awarded "World's Most Improved Airline" of the year. The award recognises an airline's growth and improvement across a number of categories, in a single year. Mark Briffa, Chief Executive Officer of Air Partner plc, said: "We are delighted to have secured this mandate with Saudi Arabian Airlines and look forward to using Air Partner's extensive experience and international network of contacts to sell these aircraft." Tony Whitty, divisional MD of Air Partner Remarketing, commented: "This appointment follows a successful period for our remarketing services, during which we have also completed the sale of two B737-700s and a new GE90 engine on behalf of Kenya Airways and two B747-400s for China Airlines."
I expect it to be be true as far as it goes. The holiday period increase is expected as a normal course of events for this time of the year of course... but if the April/June figure is indicative of a general increase in business above the norms for 'out of season' months then that'll be reflected in next months update... and so promises to be good news indeed!
Surprised this price sensitive info is given on FB. At least it would appear to be good news ... if true.
Latest blurb from Air on FB boasts they have witnessed a 37% increase in bookings across April & June versus the earlier months of the year and expecting 100% increase from normal levels between now and end of August. So that ok then!
It's day to day share price is still pretty volatile, isn't it? ;-) ADVFN's quoted per is still nonsense, I see.
Well, it has always been pretty volatile and sensitive to what is happening in the economy. Perhaps with the economy slowing and the prospect of interest rates rising it is taking a dip. I believe their recent history of acquisitions is intended to try and smooth the earnings over the year and the business cycle. BTW. The ADVFN per figure is nonsense; presumably because of the share split - perhaps multiply by five, so over twenty.
Certainly sellers seem to have the upper hand and maybe there is bad news leaking out as often happens. Brexit wouldn't seem a problem, quite the reverse with worldwide earnings. The latest outlook was favourable and even netting off Air Card advance payments the company is cash rich. If it relocated to AIM, gaining the favourable IHT treatment, then I would be piling in. As it stands my modest holding is not for sale. Steady as she goes.
No idea but it's gone through my tightened stop loss , so I need to do some thinking.... To paraphrease the great Joe Strummer ;Should I stay or should I go now? If I stay there could be trouble, if I stay I should buy double. Apologies R2
Anyone any idea why this is showing such weakness? Thought the last update was pretty sound?ThanksCM

Oman to update air worthiness rules of RAFO fleet with Air Partner - HTTP:// Air Partner's aviation safety consultancy company Baines Simmons has been awarded a contract to provide aviation safety consultancy services to the Royal Air Force of Oman (RAFO). The objective of the programme is to improve and safeguard the airworthiness of all RAFO aircraft for years to come by developing a new Continuing Airworthiness ruleset for RAFO. RAFO previously used a military regulatory system based on UK legacy requirements, but this will be updated to operate in line with international modern military standards. The programme is particularly pertinent following the arrival of new fleets of Typhoon and Hawk 200 aircraft in Oman. The Baines Simmons consultancy and training programme is based on the newly completed European Military Airworthiness Requirements (EMARs), as well as their source European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) regulations. Mark Briffa, Group CEO of Air Partner said: “When we acquired Baines Simmons in 2015, we knew its international role as a trusted advisor to more than 750 aviation organisations and more than 40 aviation authorities would fit well with Air Partner’s international blue chip client base. Since the acquisition, Baines Simmons has secured several new contracts, including a 10-year contract with the Isle of Man, and I am delighted that we are now working with the Royal Air Force of Oman too. We look forward to building what I hope will be the start of a long-term relationship.”
AIR has always been like this, too big a spread to sensibly trade, but always peeps trying hence volatile.
Very quiet on here. Seems like some people buying but share price still decling, must be a large seller in the background.
Sold half of mine today. Didn't quite catch the top. Anyway, happy to keep the rest but taking a few profits ahead of the election. The rest are now effectively zero cost shares for me which is nice.
yes, read the same article. must dig it out as there were a few others , treatt etc
the monkster
Got into this after reading that Lord Lee owns some shares. Nicely coincided with this rise too
What I've always believed is it's too easy to double-post on here.
What I've always believed. If you are a high flier, why fly with the disorganised riff raff such as British Airways, IAG or the latest manifestation, let alone endure the crush getting through to the first-class lounge only to find your aircraft is switched off and nobody can find the power plug. Just let AIR take the strain. That's what I do - at least in my dreams.
Good spot Jimmy, There is bound to be a longer term benefit from this. TC
Of course !that explains the rise. Thanks for sharing. R2
Assume some decent rise off the back of BA flights: Air Partner, the global aviation services group, has swung into action to support its clients through the chaos that impacted commercial flights during one of the busiest weekends of the UK holiday calendar, with people wishing to take advantage of the bank holiday and half term get away period. Julia Timms, Air Partner’s Group Marketing Director, commented: “Enquiries for Air Partner’s private jet services have been up 76% compared to the same bank holiday weekend last year.” “Colleagues have worked over the weekend to support new enquiries and our existing JetCard clients – to help get them to their destinations at the last minute.” “While private jets supply has held up - landing and take-off slots into popular and restricted destinations, such as Ibiza - have become hard to come by as the number of people turning to private jets increased.” “The most popular destination enquires have been for Barcelona, Lisbon, Nice, Palma and Faro - often for family holidays.” “Many families had planned to go abroad for the bank holiday or half term holiday, and traditionally there are very few last minute seats available at this time of year – so some people have been turning to private aviation as an alternative.” "One client and his wife were separated from their two young daughters and nanny, when their original flight from London to France was cancelled. Air Partner arranged a charter as quickly as possible to reunite the family." “However, we’ve also seen some clients booking ahead for business trips next week, as they’re expecting the chaos to linger for a few days. One FTSE 100 CEO was unable to get from Geneva to Heathrow today on a commercial service, so called on us to charter an aircraft to Farnborough airport so that he could attend critical meetings." “Clients flew out of the typical private airports – with Biggin Hill and Farnborough the most popular amongst our clients.”
The number of people flying around in planes ( currently c1million at any one time worldwide) is scheduled to double by 2030. This leaves AIR with plenty of scope to promote its services and I don't see popstars, footballers or diplomats downgrading there requirements any time soon. I added yesterday and am happy to hold.
