Volanteus Welcomes Oliver Gates

Volanteus is delighted to welcome Oliver Gates to the Group Charter team

Oliver joins Volanteus with over 10 years’ experience in the Aviation industry, originally starting as an oil and gas helicopter pilot operating an S92 out of Aberdeen, the Shetlands Isles and the Falklands. Oliver continued his career flying for East Anglian Air Ambulance based in Cambridge, before the enticement of a career in charter sales, focusing on the group charter side of the operation took hold. We at Volanteus are certainly glad it did, and we welcome him as Senior Group Charter Broker.

When asked why he chose Volanteus, Oliver cites,

“The people, the opportunities, Volanteus’ reputation in the industry, their vision, strong leadership and the chance to develop in my career – this is a great company to be joining.”

Craig Grantham, Director of Group Charter at Volanteus comments, “Oliver’s standout customer service skills and ability to undertake complex flight operations, made him an ideal addition to our growing Group Charter team.”

Volanteus has a long-held interest in sustainable fuels and the role aviation can play in developing this area, Oliver shares this enthusiasm, and alongside Alina Minaeva who sits as Deputy Chair of NextGen at the Air Charter Association, we have a formidable team to represent Volanteus and private aviation in general.

Oliver spends his free time playing polo and golf with a passion for most sports, whether playing or watching. A self-confessed ‘foodie’, Oliver also enjoys trying new restaurants.
