A warm welcome message from the Managing Director

Firstly let me say, welcome to Azzura Charters and thank you for taking the time to visit our website. I hope you are enjoying browsing the site so far. Whilst Azzura Charters has been offering private charter services since May 2012, I have been in the aviation industry for over 14 years and wanted to share with you my experience and offer you my expertise in sourcing and chartering private jets and helicopters whatever the occasion.  

Whilst graduating from University with a BSc in Business and Airport Operations my career began as a Customer Service agent at Kent International Airport Manston. This was an excellent insight into the operations of a commercial airport where I learnt first-hand what was involved in looking after passengers and the crew of Cargo Airlines, Commercial Airlines and Private Jets. I then went on to manage a VIP handling facility at Lydd Airport in Kent and managed a team of handling agents ensuring a first class service was provided to the passengers and crew of visiting private aircraft. Having gained experience in airport operations and aircraft handling I wished to further my knowledge and skills and went on to become an Aviation Charter Consultant chartering aircraft on behalf  of  a range of clients.

Over the last 14 years working in the Aviation industry I have a gained a wealth of knowledge and experience and excellent working relationships with numerous professional aircraft managers and operators worldwide as well as handling agents, catering and chauffeur companies.

I am passionate about aviation and I thoroughly enjoy working with clients to organise their itineraries and source their aircraft whilst providing an excellent customer service. I have had the pleasure of organising some very memorable charters around the world on a variety of aircraft and no two days are ever the same.

The clients I have worked with appreciate the personable service I offer, they feel rest assured that I am always working with their best interests in mind and can reach me anytime. In today's modern age of online communications it's so easy to lose the personal touch in the midst of emails and live web chats, I personally believe that by speaking and meeting with clients this provides the foundation to building a great relationship and providing trust.

I know that in today's charter market clients have become, and rightly so, more aware of the age of the aircraft they would like to charter and keener than ever for a competitive charter quotation. I understand that private air charter customers like familiarity with their service provider and to feel their custom is appreciated. With these factors in mind this has lead me to create Azzura Jet Charters. Our intention is to offer the newest, most modern aircraft for hire at a  competitive price to match a client's itinerary whilst ensuring that a personalised customer service remains at the forefront of our business.

I hope you continue to enjoy browsing the Azzura Charters website and we very much look forward to being of assistance with your next private air charter requirement.
