London, February 18, 2012
Private Jet Charter, one of the world's largest independent private jet charter brokers and consultants, has appointed Ross Kelly as its new managing director for the Middle East, to be based in its Dubai regional office.
Commenting on the appointment, chief executive Hugh Courtenay said: “In keeping with our aggressive expansion in Europe, North America and the Middle East, we are delighted to appoint Ross as head of our Middle East operations which were launched in 2002 with an operations office in Dubai Airport Free Zone Authority.'
'Ross has wealth of experience in international aviation and brings with him a range of skills and expertise that will enable him to empower the team to develop the brand and further boost our market share in the region,' he added.
Ross held the role of sales and operations manager for over four years with Starair Ireland, and previously held several roles with Aer Arann also based in Ireland.
Courtenay pointed out that PJC notched up remarkable sales in 2011 compared with past years; its accumulative experience and wide industry knowledge has defied the recession.
The appointment of Kelly will further strengthen the expertise of the Middle Eastern team to enable them to handle the expanding operations of the company, he said.
On his new role, Kelly said, 'It is a matter of pride to work with such a reputed company as Private Jet Charter as a senior management member. Heading up such a busy regional office that serves the entire Middle East region is an exciting challenge.'
'Private Jet Charter is a highly regarded company with a great sense of professionalism and I was thrilled to accept the offer. The company is entirely quality driven and enjoys established partnerships with customers around the world,' he added.
