Meet the Team

Magma Aviation commenced trading in 2010 and in spite of the difficult economic conditions that have prevailed worldwide since that time, we have rapidly grown from arranging ad-hoc charter flights into a significant UK based global air cargo management company, regularly flying products on behalf of household names. Magma Aviation’s success is built on dynamism, innovative ideas and a wealth of air freight industry experience, which has led to our reputation for professionalism, quality, flexibility and most importantly, value added service.

Our directors; Tom Wrigley, Ross Wilson, Andy Ward and Jason Oates have combined their 75 years of aviation logistics, operations, commercial and senior management experience to develop Magma Aviation into a unique complete air cargo service.

Ross progressed from air freight forwarding to managing the perishable charters from Zimbabwe to Europe, before moving in to the role of Regional Manager for the South African Airways B737 regional freighter operations.
