galatea99: The average EPS over the last four years is about 7.6p. So, had nothing very much changed in AIR's business, at the present SP, that would give a PER barely into double figures. By itself, one could perhaps feel comfortable with that as an investment. Indeed, for most of that four-year period, the share price was substantially higher than it is today. Even coming into 2020, the share price was still nudging 100p, about 10%-15% higher than today's share price Now consider the business and profits AIR is earning from responding to the opportunities arising from the spread of and failure to control the Chinese virus, the commercial effects of which are (imo) likely to go on for much longer than many or most people are assuming. Consider the contributions still to accrue fully from the new offices opened in the last couple of years. Consider the contribution to accrue from Redline, which is looking to be an excellend addition to AIR's business portfolio. Consider the contributions still to fully accrue from other businesses added in that time. Next to nothing of that existed only a few months ago. Then consider as well this is a company now with about 25% of its MC in cash. On the other hand, there is, let me think, oh yes, "the vaccine", oh, "the vaccine", the magic dust to sprinkle over the world that will put everything right and take us back to "pre-covid" time and everyone will start jumping on planes without a care in the world, world trade will resume just as before, "happy days are here again"! Yeah, right! Tough one.............

galatea99: Here's another article referring to David McCown's interview that StudentInvestor 13 found in Air Cargo News: Https://privatejetcardcomparisons.com/2020/05/27/may-private-jet-flight-requests-at-air-partner-jump-210-year-over-year/ Extracts: "Jet card and on-demand private jet broker Air Partner says inquiries are for travel through August A day after Sentient Jet reported quote requests had increased 241% from March lows, private jet charter broker Air Partner says it too is seeing a tidal wave of interest. The publicly traded seller of jet cards and on-demand charter said in a press release issued this morning that year-over-year inquiries were up 210%. “We expect that as the travel industry rebounds, private aviation will be extremely busy, including an influx of those who have never flown privately before due to the enhanced safeguarding measures in place. As that time comes, travelers can rest assured that they’re in safe and experienced hands with Air Partner,” said David McCown, Air Partner’s U.S. president." "In addition to on-demand charter, Air Partner said it is seeing increased interest in its jet card and corporate shuttle programs. Air Partner said the surge in year-over-year requests comes from both business and leisure travelers. McCown added, “When booking a flight with Air Partner, travelers work closely with a dedicated account manager who coordinates all aspects of the flight logistics. Available 24/7, Air Partner’s expert team is kept fully briefed on all COVID-19 developments, including the latest in local laws, health regulations, travel restrictions and airport openings.” Air Partner also taps into its Redline Assured Security to offer travel advice using both human and AI-driven intelligence to assess and mitigate risk for clients flying amid Covid-19. " "A TIDAL WAVE OF INTEREST"!

studentinvestor13: Nice. also this out Air Partner sees renewed interest for private flights, following eased COVID-19 restrictions By: AJOT | May 27 2020 at 11:42 AM | Air Cargo News As governments across the globe begin to ease COVID-19 restrictions, Air Partner’s global private aviation team saw more than a 210% increase in request volumes for future flight bookings during May, compared to last May. This uptick in inquiries is for private flights heading into June through August, with many clients – ranging from individuals to corporations – seeking alternative solutions for flying to frequented leisure destinations or traveling for essential business matters. With Air Partner’s accumulated expertise spanning the past 60 years, the company is able to offer unparalleled guidance to travelers flying during the COVID-19 pandemic and ensure that every detail of their trip is expertly managed. “We’re dedicated to delivering a memorable and safe private aviation experience for our clients. With the world facing unprecedented challenges today, we know our clients truly appreciate the added levels of assurance and operational excellence we’re able to provide for their flights,” said David McCown, president of Air Partner U.S. “We expect that as the travel industry rebounds, private aviation will be extremely busy, including an influx of those who have never flown privately before due to the enhanced safeguarding measures in place. As that time comes, travelers can rest assured that they’re in safe and experienced hands with Air Partner.” When booking a flight with Air Partner, travelers work closely with a dedicated account manager who coordinates all aspects of the flight logistics. Available 24/7, Air Partner’s expert team is kept fully briefed on all COVID-19 developments, including the latest in local laws, health regulations, travel restrictions and airport openings. Through its dedicated Safety & Security division, Air Partner uses Redline Assured Security to offer travel advice using both human and AI-driven intelligence to assess and mitigate risk for clients flying amid COVID-19. Recently, Air Partner demonstrated its experience managing new stringent health protocols and logistical challenges on a private flight for a corporation that needed to transport employees for a ship crew rotation near Italy. As part of its new “Air Partner Protect” program, a paramedic was made available on-site prior to take-off to conduct health screenings with a scanned temperature reading for crew and passengers. The passengers were also socially distanced on board with spaced seating arrangements. In addition, Air Partner’s charter specialists coordinated between the origin airport, which was closed due to travel restrictions, to open specifically for the flight, and then also made arrangements for the passengers to bypass the arrival airport terminal and proceed directly to their vessel. With commercial airlines drastically cutting their schedules and also, less nonstop routes available, Air Partner offers flying programs that meet the needs of those who have to travel more frequently. With offerings such as a JetCard membership and tailored Corporate Shuttle Program, clients can fly according to any unique flight requirements. Frequent flyers may prefer to fly at a fixed hourly rate with Air Partner’s JetCard membership – the most flexible program of its kind on the market – to get between cities conveniently for essential business meetings, family visits and other critical trips. Additionally, groups seeking viable air transportation options for inter-office employee travel and remote crew movements are scheduling flights with Air Partner’s Corporate Shuttle Program, either arranging their private flights as a regularly scheduled series of flights or on an as-needed basis.

onthemarblecliffs: Disclosure: I own the shares - mainly bought in this year when everything with the word Air in it was being crushed. Good profit upgrade today - if you assume zero profit for the remainder of the year this puts the shares still on only 4x underlying P/E. I do think the current level of charter activity will lessen, as anyone who is still flying is likely to be doing it for an emergency and via private jet (i.e. using a broker like AIR to arrange it). This is unlikely to change whilst scheduled flights are down ~80%+ (hxxps://www.eurocontrol.int/Economics/DailyTrafficVariation-States.html). That is why I believe Venek has been wrong - yes, normal business jet volumes are signficantly down but it is those flights that are still running that are driving the market (and AIR's activity). Freight is being driven by PPE, with high rates out-of-China even with capacity now above prior year (hxxps://www.lloydsloadinglist.com/freight-directory/news/Ex-China-air-freight-capacity-now-higher-than-last-year/76520.htm). Again, I think Venek is wrong here, as the airlines no longer have the capacity to serve sell directly (that is why the freight forwarders have ~90% market share) and even many of the forwarders (unless they are project specialists) actually use AIR and other charterers to procure aircraft. Hopefully AIR can use these current positive conditions wisely - dividend yes but also invest in the business to ensure better and more consistent performance than in the past. The current rating indicates the market is still wary after the past few years. That is the opportunity.

venek: As I have commented previously, business jet activity and cargo moved does not automatically equal air charter broker business (let alone or AP's market share in teh brokerage market). They are merely indicative of the wider aviation market. Neither are as rosy as some have portrayed:- Richard Koe, MD of business jet market analysts WINGX, recently commented that a 30% fall in flights in March "marked the lowest monthly level of activity in the last 15 years, and furthermore the full month trend significantly understates the trending decline which was closer to 70% in the second half of March. Indeed, in the first half of March, charter operators benefited from strong growth in repatriation demand, but by the end of the month all operator types were suffering similarly very steep levels of decline. We anticipate continued very high levels of reduction in YOY flights through April.” Hong Kong International Airport — the world’s largest air cargo hub — said that in March freight throughput dropped 12.4% to 378,000 tonnes compared to the same month last year. Europe’s largest air cargo hub Frankfurt Airport Cargo throughput (comprising airfreight and airmail) slipped by 17.4% percent in March to 167,279 metric tons. And at Belgium airport Brussels there was a 14.6% year-on-year decline in March to 52,520 tons of cargo. Heathrow Airport reported that its cargo volumes had dropped by 32.5% year on year in March to 100,857 tonnes.

marmar80: AIR EVACUATIONS DURING COVID-19 OUTBREAK – Q&A WITH EMERGENCY PLANNING DIVISION MANAGER, JOE HALANEN02 Apr 2020With the Covid-19 outbreak continuing to develop around the world, and affecting countries globally, there's no doubt there's both challenging and fast changing circumstances for companies and individuals to contend with. As countries across the world close their borders and citizens are instructed by governments to return to their home countries, air evacuations have been essential.?Over the last three weeks, we have seen this first-hand working closely with our clients to quickly and safely repatriate employees before borders and airports closeSince the outbreak began to sweep the world, our Emergency Planning Division have been extremely busy helping our clients to navigate through these uncertain times.With a large amount of our clients with employees in hard to reach destinations continuing to work on large projects such as oil & gas, or consultancy – it is business critical that they have an emergency evacuation plan in place for their employees to ensure their safety at any given time.Emergency Planning Division Manager, Joe Halanen explains how we have been working with clients and the intricacies and importance of having a plan in place for your employees. How have you been assisting clients so far during the Covid-19 outbreak?We have had a vast number of enquiries from affected clients and we continue to monitor the situation and provide assistance wherever we can. Our team have already organised evacuation flights for our clients, from many countries including Algeria, Angola, Morocco, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Nigeria.Our clients operate in high risk areas and having sufficient cover in times of crisis is of paramount importance. We have annual or multi-year contracts in place with our clients and when they first enter into the contract with us, we draw up a bespoke country evacuation plan, aimed at mitigating risk and ensuring that our clients are prepared for any type of emergency. The country plan is a comprehensive document with detailed planning including airfield capabilities, alternative airfields, destinations and potential safe havens, as well as items such as routes to the airfield and passenger manifests. It is extremely detailed, completely tailored to the client and has allowed our clients to prepared in situations such as Covid-19.During the Covid-19 outbreak, we have been providing guidance and support to our clients, via our dedicated Emergency Helpline telephone number, where an Aviation Specialist is on-hand to assist 24/7. If a client is looking for an evacuation flight, after calling this telephone number and speaking with us, we provide an initial proposal within an hour from their first call to us. Then once we have the full solution and the client's agreement, we then work through all the logistics and operate the evacuation flight. The logistics can often be complex and includes securing the aircraft and organising the relevant paperwork which includes gaining the necessary permits. How are you monitoring the situation?Our team have been carefully monitoring and preparing for this specific situation for many weeks now, however the bespoke country evacuation plans are tailored to their specific circumstances and have already factored in how to evacuate employees should any crisis situation occur.We are carefully monitoring upcoming and current airport closures and providing updates to our clients. Many airport closures worldwide have led clients to having to evacuate quickly or consider other land routes to airports which are still open. What advice have you been giving clients?Our team has had many requests for information about imminent airport closures and also questions about ways around these closures, which our experienced Account Managers are often able to find. For example, in the early stages of the airport closures due to COVID-19 we had informed clients about the situation such as for Kuwait where other departure options are limited.We have also had many enquires relating to availability of aircraft just in case of the need to enquire, so have been advising clients in this regard. As it stands, it's a fast-moving situation and spare capacity tends to get booked up quickly, we are seeing fast turnarounds in aircraft bookings, so have advised our clients accordingly. What do clients need to consider before an evacuation flight?Clients need to consider their passenger manifest list - who will fly, including their nationalities and visa details, to help us plan the destination of the charter flight. They should also consider wider points relative to the situation, such as what to take and how to get to the airport. We help clients plan all of this in advance of an evacuation so that risks are mitigated as much as possible. As the outbreak becomes more widely spread impacting more areas, what should clients consider for the immediate future?As the outbreak continues to unfold, we'll be working closely with our clients to monitor airport closures and consider how long they may be shut for. At some point borders and airports will start to re-open so we stand by ready to assist in repatriating staff who have become stranded in order for clients' operations to continue in the future. Our Emergency Planning division has provided 24-hour global air evacuation planning and implementation services for nearly 20 years. We are a dedicated and skilled team offering a personalised service, but with the backing of a global company. The benefits of having a contract with us include:• Bespoke country evacuation plans tailored to your company's requirements• Access to dedicated emergency helpline manned 24/7, providing quick response to situations• Our assistance and involvement in your test evacuation exercises• Access to credit so there are no delays to your evacuation• Experience and reassurance - Air Partner PLC has over 58 years of experience in the global charter market• Access to further security & medical services

vprt: What a shambles by Castlefield - they had £135m of cash at end February, but still ended up dumping shares at a tanking AIR share price. I guess it shows the real advantage we PIs have relative to funds when it comes entry/exit with only modest price impact... hxxps://documentscdn.financialexpress.net/Literature/C1E632D4E714FAFB5CC1B89D7ACE4B45/149167377.pdf I wonder how their next report will describe the eventful March and their success (or otherwise) of managing their clients' money well in volatile times?

venek: "There never was much visibility about future earnings at Air, in any case." Very true but even historic earnings have been kept as opaque as possible. The recent official RNS was stark and the market reacted to the bleakness. How funny that days later AP pump out more positive informal PR spin but with very little underlying fact. Things to remember: Low oil price is generally good for aviation and economies generally. Now the safety and security bods at AP might normally have hopped for more business as the oil process falls. Not this time, as airlines park aircraft, furlong staff and cancel training. Those who pay close attention will know the UK military announced yesterday they were cancelling 31 days of scheduled training with Baines Simmonds to add to what is likely to be a tsumami of cancellations from airlines. BS are now having to scramble to offer online training but it appears they have done little other than offer to deliver materiel by webinar. Apparently BS have a disgruntled workforce we've been told here by ex-employees. They are going to get even more disgruntled as the work dries up. A low oil price is not good for the oil industry and they are a traditionally big user of chartered aircraft, especially to support drilling campaigns, move outsized loads, mobilise for drilling etc. Energy analysts are showing that future explo projects are going into abeyance, especially as counties go on lock down. Yes there is a very short term freight demand as airline services are disrupted (most cargo flies under the floor on scheduled services not charters). But that will ease as airlines adjust their schedules to fly cargo only flights. Cargo rates will go up but the relationship will be between freight forwarders and airlines, not via charter brokers. HOWEVER, those blinded by a few AP tweets need to look at the global economy generally. Economic activity is dropping so cargo demand is dropping. Even if demand exceeds supply is only because of the total supply dropping. Loot at business aviation - big players are, just like the airlines, hibernating:- Harrods www.ainonline.com/aviation-news/business-aviation/2020-03-25/harrods-temporarily-closing-london-fbo-mros GAMA www.flightglobal.com/business-aviation/gama-aviation-prepares-for-impact-from-covid-19-outbreak/137522.article The head of the UK trade association BBGA says: "The expectation is that by the end of the month everything will be grounded. t is highly likely that we will see a significant number of business casualties that will be defeated by cash-flow problems. The magnitude of this depends on how quickly the market opens in a global sense. Clearly it is not just how your home country is performing against the virus, it is how your normal client network is affected. If this spreads out some three months, then there could be significant losses." He said that, operationally, there was a “very short peak where people repositioned themselves” before borders closed, but now things are slowing to a halt. In this article:- www.ainonline.com/aviation-news/business-aviation/2020-03-27/bizav-demand-dip-deepens-covid-19-closes-factories "Those looking for silver linings in the dark clouds over business aviation this week found themselves squinting to see any. If the Covid-19 pandemic’s repercussions for the industry still seemed ambiguous at the end of last week, there is now little doubt that the sector’s engines are spooling down and the industry is bracing for a period of inactivity. The only remaining questions seem to be for how long this might last and whether it could prove to be more than just a temporary interruption to what until now has been a rising tide for business aviation." On March 26, data analyst WingX reported business aviation flights to and from Europe as being 24 percent down so far in March, compared to the same period in 2019. “The slowdown accelerated into a slump last week, with flight activity over the most recent weekend falling by 70 percent,” said the company. Teal Group’s vice president for analysis, Richard Aboulafia says “Whenever something bad happens to airlines (pandemic or terror), there’s an anecdotal upsurge in private aviation demand. This has never proved to be sustainable. In fact, business jet demand gets clobbered by crashing equity markets and corporate profits.” More and more businesses are reverting to online meetings. Yes, when travel bans are lifted business travel will increase. But while companies are still in the aftermath of this pandemic inspired downturn its reasonable to assume they will use online methods to reduce travel costs. People picking target prices are either doing it based on data (so go ahead share some) or picking it out of thin air (and remember 2 years ago it was 140p!). Only a month or so ago (AFTER the outbreak in China) analysts Canaccord Genuity revised their target for AP from 145 (set Oct 2019) to 140. That looks laughable now. At the time some here saw that as another sign of postivity for AP. of course any one who bothered to research the topic would know Canaccord Genuity are not a truly independent anayst, but AP had appointed them as financial adviser and joint broker last September. Its behaviour like that and pumping out PR spin that contradicts RNSs make me worry about integrity at AP.

marmar80: My take about AIR situation.Share price declined dramatically as the investors linked AIR with traditional airlines. Now I personally think the share price will climb back to around 60p until update from company is received. RSI is still low so there is a chance to recover quite fast.Low oil price is good for keeping costs down. Premium ticket prices, good for revenue. No ordinary passenger flights by big airlines, good for taking repatriation flights and rapidly expand on their newly launched product AirPartner Protect. Demand is out there. Shortage of goods from China, good for AIR cargo unit. Cargo won't be stopped as it's needed to keep the supply chains running. History of high dividends in the previous years, hope to be kept.
