New office opened by The Charter Store in Guadalajara

New office opened by The Charter Store in Guadalajara

The Charter Store has expanded its footprint in the Americas and opened a new office in Guadalajara, Mexico.

The air charter firm says it is termed the ‘Silicone Valley’ of Mexico, and the region encompasses the country’s third largest economy and its 4.9 million inhabitants make it a robust economic engine that embraces technology, manufacturing and other sectors.

The Charter Store notes that locating a local sales and operations outlet in Guadalajara was a “natural fit”.

Steering the new venture is air charter veteran Istvan Lorincz (pictured above) who will be the new country manager for Mexico. He brings his 24 years of aviation and logistics experience with him and the company says he is “well regarded” in the Mexican airfreight community.

The Charter Store president, Harry Steiner says: “Our NAFTA business has realized a noteworthy expansion in the last three years and consequently customers are demanding more than just the usual airport-to-airport solutions.

“With the addition of our Mexico office we can now offer our customers a true door-to-door product for many of the small ‘go now’ charters crossing the border or domestically within Mexico.

“We’re also placing emphasis on providing live tracking and possibly add hand-carry or courier services in the future. We consider these to be powerful tools available for our clients that few other charter companies may be offering.”
