It has to be a scam.

No reputable London company would use an 070 number as a contact phone. London geographic numbers start 0207 or 0208. The 070 series are "follow me" numbers which cost the caller (ie you) 50p per min if you are phoning from the UK and more if you are phoning from overseas. They can forward the call to any number anywhere, so the guy may not even be based in the UK.

Add to that their website:

http://www.air-charter-world.8m.com/
air-charter-world is a subdomain of http://www.8m.com/

If you visit that site, you're redirected to: http://www.freeservers.com/

So this "company" is so cheap they will not buy a domain name (Cost, about 20.) They will not buy a website hosting plan, and use free email address @yahoo.com

I smell scam.

That's obviously the beginning of a job scam. The fraudster has stolen the identity and some content from this website: http://www.aircharterserviceplc.com/
