Air Partner plc, the global aviation services group, is pleased to announce that it has acquired the entire issued share capital of Redline Worldwide Limited, trading as Redline Assured Security (together “Redline”), a leading global aviation security solutions and training company.

Redline is a world leader in its field, with proprietary software and e-Learning capabilities, offering significant growth opportunities and furthering the Group’s relationships with airports, airlines, governments, and corporates around the world.

Mark Briffa, Chief Executive Officer of Air Partner plc, commented: “Redline has a world class reputation in the aviation sector for delivering first class security training and solutions to an international customer base. I am delighted to welcome Paul, Redline’s employees, associates and customers to the Air Partner Group. Redline is a significant milestone in the development of our new Safety & Security division. This acquisition further extends our services into aviation security and combined with our existing aviation safety activities, enables us to deliver a compelling suite of aviation safety and security products and services, both physically and digitally, to a high-quality global customer base.

This acquisition is a further progression of Air Partner’s long-term corporate strategy and the next step in the transformational journey we began in 2015. Our objective remains to improve both the quality and visibility of our group earnings over time, which we believe will be achieved by focusing on our customers and our people while investing in products, services, and office infrastructure as we manage the business for the long term.”

Paul Mason, Founder, and CEO of Redline Worldwide Limited said: “The acquisition of Redline by Air Partner creates a unique and highly capable safety and security business that operates on the global stage, providing an exciting range of products and services to some of the world’s most prominent businesses and organisations.

Assuring safety and security is the priority of all our customers, and it’s a business purpose that both Air Partner and Redline share, making the combination both compelling and necessary. I am delighted that Redline will become ‘Air Partner Assured Security’ early in 2020 as we work to bring safety and security together into one combined function, able to provide the holistic solutions our customers need and the future will demand.

I would like to recognise my Redline colleagues and thank them for their tireless hard work, loyalty and dedication over the past 14 years, as well as our customers for their steadfast patronage and trust in Redline with their most critical business needs.”
