The World Cup arrives at Smart House

As with any major international sporting event, The World Cup in South Africa has led to an increase in the number of business jet charters for corporate clients and high-net-worth individuals.

Smart’s Paul Baker arranged several charters for the England versus USA game, with the latest, a Gulfstream G550 on behalf of a high-profile client to fly direct to South Africa from the UK for England’s remaining group games.

Paul Baker commented – “…with the economic conditions improving, the number of enquiries we have received from individuals holding senior positions within the City of London has increased considerably, with many chartering aircraft for business as well as pleasure.”

Private jet travel is surprisingly affordable when compared with Business Class seats on scheduled airlines. Add on the fact that you choose when and where you want to fly, the level of service both onboard and pre/post journey, and the peace of mind that an entire team of charter managers are watching over your flight, every step of the way – and you are looking at very good value for money.
