Acquisition International - Influential Businesswoman Awards 2021 Company: Eclipse Air Charter Contact: Yasmin Alam Email: yalam@eclipseaircharter.com Website: www.eclipseaircharter.com Air Charter MD of the Year 2021: Yasmin Alam (UK) rom its offices in London, Toronto and New York, Eclipse Air Charter offers clients a truly superior, bespoke and personal experience, whether they are travelling for leisure or business. Its offering features the latest, most innovative technology and the world’s safest, most reliable aircraft, along with the most passionate, knowledgeable and experienced crew. Knowing they are in safe hands and with no long-term commitment due to the company’s pay-as-you-go service, the world is the client’s oyster and they have the ability to fly absolutely anywhere, anytime. All while enjoying optimal luxury and comfort. Since its inception, Eclipse has seen substantial growth across the world, with the opening of its Toronto office in 2016, New York City office in 2018 and London office in 2020. Even during a pandemic, when passenger air travel ceased, the company was able to adapt and temporarily provide cargo transportation instead of passenger travel. With the changing of government regulations and the implementation of hygiene protocols onboard & testing facilities at airports, Eclipse was able to commence passenger flights and saw an increase in demand due travellers wishing to travel in a more private, safe and efficient way. Indeed, Eclipse has gone from strength to strength since Managing Director, Yasmin Alam founded the company in 2016 after she gained considerable international experience within the aviation industry. She worked in London, Singapore, Los Angeles and Toronto, which gave her exposure to international markets and behaviours. Yasmin is a visionary entrepreneur who is passionate about her work and pushing the hiring of more women within the aviation industry and into leadership roles. So much so that she has followed her success with Eclipse by starting a new venture capital company based in London called Equilibrium VC, an active investor into female founded companies across multiple industries. Equilibrium VC is female entrepreneurs supporting female entrepreneurs. The experienced and professional team behind the company have been at the helm of female start-ups, and it doesn’t just want to provide funding, but it also wants to form a partnership from inception and give them the ongoing support and services needed in order to help them grow and succeed. F When asked if she has any advice for other women looking to succeed in starting their own venture, Yasmin simply said, “Believe in yourself. If you don’t, no one else will.” The sky is the limit for Yasmin and her entrepreneurial projects. She intends to continue the expansion of Eclipse while also actively investing in female-founded companies. Founded in 2016 by Managing Director, Yasmin Alam, Eclipse Air Charter is an on-demand, private aircraft charter company which delivers exceptional private aircraft charter solutions for some of the leading companies and private individuals worldwide.
