Flight Time Is Increasingly Used As Part Of The Trip Experience
Hunt & Palmer PLC, the air charter broker, say that when it comes to commercial air charter they have seen the demand for bespoke in-flight services steadily rise, particularly when dealing with the MICE sector.
The company, who are celebrating 25 years in the industry this year, have seen a growing trend towards clients making requests to ensure that the flight time is utilised effectively and to enhance the whole event experience.
Simon Edwards, Director of Commercial Aviation commented, “When it comes to group air charter the requests from clients for bespoke services, facilities and entertainment has risen over the years. The flight is now an integral part of the experience and quite often work begins as soon as delegates’ check-in at the airport. If you have a captive group located in one place for a set period it’s an ideal opportunity to brief and inform, show corporate films and distribute corporate or product material.
“When it comes to chartering the whole aircraft the plane can be fully branded or themed and extra touches added so that a trip is consistent from the very start to finish.”
Hunt & Palmer’s Flight Services division was established solely to cater for clients’ in-flight needs from dedicated check-in desks, to branded headrest covers, and special requests when it comes to in-flight catering or entertainment.
Simon Edwards concludes: “There is very little we can’t do to create a different flight experience for our clients.”
