Hunt & Palmer "backs the bid"
Specialist air charter company, Hunt&Palmer, has been appointed as an official supplier to England’s “Back the Bid” for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Hunt&Palmer will arrange private helicopter transport for the 6-strong FIFA delegation as they undertake inspection tours of the various stadia across the country this month. Their assessment of the England bid will include visits to a selection of the 12 potential host cities, which range from Newcastle to London.
Neil Harvey, Hunt&Palmer Director of Executive Aviation, commented; “We are delighted to have been selected to fly the FIFA committee and consider it a great honour to be part of such a nationally important project.”
The England “Back the Bid” 2018 campaign has considerable high profile support, including the Prime Minister David Cameron and former England Captain David Beckham. A final decision as to which country will host the 2018 World Cup will be made by FIFA in December 2010 and should England be successful, FIFA will announce their choice of Host Cities by 2013.
