Smart look ahead to February and beyond…

So we’ve made it through January and are now looking ahead to February and beyond… We didn’t imagine that we would still be in this restricted situation as the Aviation industry finds itself.

2020 was a very challenging year for everyone especially in the Aviation sector. Having been optimistic that green shoots were appearing at the beginning of December, we were dealt another blow of a further national lockdown and yet more travel restrictions. That said we continue to be positive whilst working to our key strengths and the core values that have kept us in the forefront of charter broking for the last 16 years. We stick to what we know best, whilst other companies appear to now be cargo experts, we focus on our market strengths.

January has seen an exceptional rise in Private Jet Travel – in fact our busiest January for over 10 years! We pride ourselves in offering first class service to our private jet clientele as well as sports clubs who often call on us to provide a last minute service for their important player movements. We are talking to a number of our tour operating clients about increased charter programmes from July onwards. We, of course, hope that this could be possible sooner but need to be realistic. We are able enough to react at short notice.

Sport remains one of the cornerstones of our business and we continue to move teams around Europe for European games that are still happening although without fans. When the stadiums are able to be filled again, we will be ready and waiting to get fans where they want to be – watching their beloved sport!

2021 will get better – the vaccine has been a great advance for all of us and we just need to sit tight and be ready for the future with restrictions easing on travel. We can then get back to what we do best – arranging charters for our loyal client base!
