Charter Group, the parent company of Charterprime and CharterMarkets has recently expanded its wings into the aviation industry with CharterAero. The move adds to the growth and diversity of the now 200 staff strong multinational group, extending their presence to a 5th industry in as many years.

Offering a premium alternative to commercial air travel, CharterAero provides clients with the best way to travel in style, speed, and comfort, to any desired destination – via helicopter.

The new venture is more than just an A-to-B transport company however, with a service range including corporate flights, aerial photography, aerial videography, city tours, LIDAR and FLIR inspections, project inspection, moving aerial surveys, leisure flights, and even film production.

“I’ve always been passionate about flying. Starting as a personal interest and hobby of mine, this has turned into an exciting business with ancillary benefits to the entire group. Operating these luxury services has not only been a tremendous value-add for existing Clients but in many cases helped attract new ones.” said Calvin Lau, Charter Group’s Founder and Director, a qualified helicopter pilot himself.

Charter Group currently operates out of 8 offices worldwide and is maintaining consistent growth, expanding their scope from Charterprime’s derivatives brokerage and CharterMarket’s equities offerings to esports, technology, aviation and more.

Simon Stephen, Managing Partner of Charter Group added, “A fleet of helicopters is definitely a step in an exciting direction for us. The breadth of our network and team always helps create massive value in whatever industry we venture into. To the point, some of our choppers were actually used in the production of the 2018 film Crazy Rich Asians.”
