Kevin Ducksbury has 30 years’ experience in the charter industry. His career started with Monarch Airlines, based at Luton, which saw him work in a variety of roles from Crew Controller, Commercial Planner to Ad-hoc Sales Executive in the company’s commercial division.
After 11 years at Monarch in a variety of roles Kevin made the leap into charter broking as a commercial aircraft junior broker for the then Air London (now Air Partner). There he again moved into a number of broker roles before entering into the management side of the business, which saw him promoted to the company’s Operating Board as Director of Middle East & Asia based in Dubai.
After leaving Air Partner and returning to the UK in 2012, Kevin set up his own aviation consultancy and management services company, Emerge Aviation, working with a wide range of companies involved in the aircraft charter industry, from private jet operators in the Middle East to exclusive private jet catering companies in the UK, where he has provided strategic growth and managerial support as well as commercial, operational and training know-how.
Returning to Air Partner in 2021 Kevin now holds the position of Head of Aircraft Leasing, Operations and Compliance for the Air Partner Group. In March 2020 Kevin was elected as Chairman of The Air Charter Association.
