ALTOUR | Leadership



Wynona Dyer – President – ALTOUR AIR

A veteran of the aviation charter industry for over 20 years, Dyer partnered with Chemla to form ALTOUR AIR in 2005. Her previous experience, which included owning her own air charter service company, strengthened her commitment to exceeding her client’s expectations. “We specialize in VVIP charter services – but also work with groups, tours, productions and sports teams,” she states. “Each requires a different focus – but it still comes down to determining what the client wants and finding the best way to get it for them.”


Alexandre Chemla – Founder & President – ALTOUR

After 32 years as an executive in the travel industry, Alexandre founded ALTOUR in 1991 with just one employee and a dream – to build a “family,” and to provide them with unparalleled resources, so they could succeed like never before. 25 years later, ALTOUR has expanded to 62 offices, with over 1,500 travel professionals and a global network second to none. Chemla continues to guide ALTOUR by his founding principle: “We have no rules and no boundaries. We all think like entrepreneurs, which means we put the needs of our clients above all else.”


Curt Pentecost – Operations Manager – ALTOUR AIR

A graduate of Auburn University with a BS in Aviation Management, Pentecost has been in the aviation industry for over 25 years. “To provide exceptional service to our clients, we can’t say ‘I don’t know’ when asked a question,” he says. “If I don’t have the answer they seek, I’ll find it – quickly.” Having worked with fractional programs in the past, he knows the benefit of not being tied to one aircraft. “With private air charters, client needs change. Often, I’ll hear from someone who owns a fractional jet, yet needs to charter a different aircraft for a specific trip.”
