Air Partner supports clients through travel chaos
Air Partner, the global aviation services group, has swung into action to support its clients through the chaos that is currently impacting many commercial flights.
The commercial travel chaos has impacted travellers during one of the busiest times of the UK holiday calendar, with people wishing to take advantage of the bank holiday and half term get away period.
Julia Timms, Group Marketing Director, comments:
“We’ve had lots of enquiries for our private jet services; colleagues have worked over the weekend to support new enquiries and our existing JetCard clients – to help get them to their destinations at the last minute.”
“Many families had planned to go abroad for the bank holiday or half term holiday, and traditionally there are very few last minute seats available at this time of year – so some people have been turning to private aviation as an alternative.”
“The most popular destination enquires have been for Nice, Palma and Faro – often for family holidays. However, we’ve also seen some clients booking ahead with us for business trips next week, as they’re expecting the chaos to linger into next week.”
“We all know how frustrating it can be when you’ve planned a holiday and then can’t get there. The knock-on losses from hotels, connections and the associated holiday itinerary can quickly add up, meaning some people are prepared to pretty quickly start looking at different flight solutions.”
“We’ve even had a few JetCard clients renew their membership with us to get the family airborne and on holiday today!”
Air Partner offers private jet services to clients either as a “pay as you go” charter service, or via its award winning pre-paid card service called JetCard. Air Partner’s JetCard programme champions transparent pricing, with no hidden charges, and last year it reported a record year, with gross profit up by 9.3% to £10.2m, and JetCard utilisation up 41%, as membership grew to 222 card holders.
