Having achieved significant success since bravely disrupting the ACMI market in 2021 during the COVID-19 pandemic, Heston Airlines are set to further grow their fleet by 60% this year, welcoming new deliveries of A320 aircraft. As an operator that prides itself on careful crew selection and training processes, the new partnership with AeroProfessional will strengthen their crew hiring by alleviating these demanding administrative processes, leaving Heston Airlines free to focus on delivering their growing client obligations and commitments for 2023 and beyond.
