Forwarders only for new air charter specialist

[ October 27, 2011   //   ]

Two former Chapman Freeborn directors have set up a new specialist air cargo charter business pledged only to deal with freight forwarders. Neo Air Charter has been launched by former director of business development for Chapman Freeborn Airchartering Group Adnan Duran as managing partner.

He will be joined in January, by the current managing director of Chapman Freeborn Germany, Stefan Kohlmann as the new company’s joint managing partner, bringing over 20 years’ experience in the air charter business.
Neo is based in Frankfurt, and is already planning to open offices at other strategic charter gateways and has also established service partners in Singapore and US, which will be added to in the coming months.

Adnan Duran said: “We have fully recognised and respect the role of the freight agent as an essential link in the supply chain. For that reason, we will only accept enquiries and instructions from freight forwarders and logistics intermediaries. We believe that is a unique proposition in air charter. We believe our promise of commercial neutrality will really win the support of freight agents.”

He adds that Neo is subject to stringent German company law and has solid financial backing.

It can offer any type of aircraft from a Cessna to the An-225, to or from anywhere in the world with offices manned around the clock.
