“It is a great honor to have all our hard work recognized with this award.”

The charter broker cites offering more than just an aircraft charter service as key to its success, with today’s customers and suppliers demanding real added value from the broker involvement.

To meet the growing needs of its customers, Chapman Freeborn is focussed on continually increasing its global footprint, most recently adding a new office in Houston, Texas, to expand its presence in the US market.

The Houston office will be headed up by David McCown, President – Americas, Chapman Freeborn, and will support clients in the oil, gas, air logistics, and other industries based in the area.

“One of Chapman Freeborn’s market differentiators is our personalised level of service,” said McCown.

“As we celebrate Chapman Freeborn’s 50th anniversary this year, the opening of our new regional office in Houston highlights our continued commitment to making it easy for our customers to get the specialised and personalised services they need.”
