ACT celebrates 20 years


Air Charter Travel is still seeing an increase in bookings of air charters from large corporate customers

Air CharterAir Charter Travel is
celebrating 20 years of business with an increase in the number of bookings of
tailored air charters from large corporates. “Business is up 13% compared
with this time last year and we are seeing more interest for 160-190 seat
aircraft says Tim Procter, managing director. “Clients are also booking
further in advance – often up to five or six months ahead is now the average.”
Procter puts the continued growth down to the company’s extensive experience
gathered over the 20 year history.

As legacy carriers
reduce route availability and seat prices increase, corporate travel arrangers
are returning to the air charter option as it continues to offer value in terms
of time saving, cost-effectiveness and flexibility. “We’re noting that
business travel arrangers are returning to air charter as
they need to do business efficiently and we offer a solution to what could
otherwise be a real travel challenge when moving large numbers of employees
around,” Procter said.
