It is with great sadness that we report that Richard Jackson, Air Partner's Non-Executive Director and Senior Independent Director, has passed away after a short illness.

Richard joined Air Partner's Board on 8 September 2016 and was appointed as Senior Independent Director on 28 June 2017.  He also acted as the Company's Interim Chairman between 4 September 2018 and 30 March 2019. Upon the appointment of Ed Warner as Chair of the Board on 1 April 2019, he reverted to his Senior Independent Director role.

Over this period Richard provided a significant contribution to the Company's strategy and Board discussions. 

The Board and the whole of Air Partner would like to extend their sincere condolences to his family and our thoughts are with them at this time.

Air Partner's Directors will review the composition of the Board and its Committees as well as the position of Senior Independent Director once the current COVID-19 crisis has abated.
