With the summer season fast approaching, an industry recovery is on the horizon
As March comes to a close, forward bookings have seen a sharp increase, and already several major charter chains have been fixed and confirmed with some of the largest tour operators in Europe. Aircraft availability has become considerably more scarce, leading to a rise in acmi requests – a development that could suggest a busy summer for the 24/7 Smart acmi team. As other areas of the economy such as the financial industry improve, and travel budgets grow once again, the number of executive jet charters has increased.
Smart’s Sales Director Matthew Savage commented – “There have been some encouraging signs in recent months, indicating an upward trend in the state of the aviation industry”.
In order to prepare for the months ahead, Smart are continually looking for ways to strengthen. With a recruitment drive for the executive jet team, the recently expanded 24/7 acmi team and the augmentation of the Smart Plus Department, the future for Smart looks promising.
