Charter companies in tune after acquisition

London, June 2011 … Specialist aviation and travel services group Hunt&Palmer PLC
has announced the recent acquisition of aircraft charter broking company Premier Aviation
(UK) Ltd.

Premier Aviation was established in 1994 and has become highly respected in the music
industry for their professional handling of the air travel requirement for many of the world’s
leading performers, including such major artists as Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, Sting
and Roger Waters amongst their extensive clientele.

Hunt&Palmer chairman, Jeremy Palmer said, “Premier Aviation is a business that shares
many of our goals and corporate values. The company is an established supplier to the
music industry and as this is a market we have not ventured into previously, the purchase
opens the door to significant new opportunities for our group”.

Founder and former owner of Premier Aviation, Adrian Whitmarsh, who will remain as a
director post sale commented, “I am delighted with the sale and see this as a very exciting
development for both companies. Premier will benefit from the additional resources provided
by the new parent company and I very much look forward to working with the Hunt&Palmer
board as we move forward together”.

Jeremy Palmer said, “It is our intention that Premier Aviation will operate as a separate entity
within our group and that the name of Premier Aviation shall continue to be the first call for
those arranging international music tours. As far as we are concerned it will be ‘business as
usual’ for the company”.

Adrian Whitmarsh added “The continuing relationship that we have with our clients is of
primary importance to us and during the last few weeks I have spoken personally with many
of our key accounts to explain about the sale, the benefits it will bring to them and to assure
them that that they will still be dealing with me and the Premier Aviation team when booking
their flights with us in future”.
