Aircraft and private jet chartering company Smart Aviation has launched a new cargo chartering division.
Smart Aviation said the addition would enable it to offer all aspects of aviation chartering for the first time in its 17-year history.
Jos Jacobs has joined Smart Aviation as head of cargo, with the cargo specialist offering more than 15 years of experience in cargo operations and global chartering roles.
“I am delighted to join Smart Aviation and to be setting up the cargo division from scratch within this accomplished business,” said Jacobs. “Smart Aviation has a reputation for offering the highest quality of aircraft chartering and I am thrilled to now be a part of this highly respected team.”
Smart Aviation’s managing director Mark Hawkins commented: “Now is the perfect time for us as a business to be expanding our operation within cargo. Throughout Covid-19, cargo remained resilient in the aviation industry and with our unparalleled knowledge of chartering large groups and equipment across the world, this is the logical next step for the company.
“With Jos at the helm, we know we will soon be leading the way in this area of chartering too. We are now officially a one-stop shop for all aviation chartering requirements across a variety of sectors and clientele.”
