EIBTM celebrates 2 decades of charter service with Air Charter travel
The benefits of flying by private charter to EIBTM
Nov 18, 2012
UK-based Air Charter Travel, the leading large group air charter broker, is celebrating 20 years of collaboration with Reed Travel Exhibitions this November when it provides its twentieth Hosted Buyer flight to the premier meetings, incentives, events, and business travel industry event, EIBTM in Barcelona between November 27-29. Air Charter Travel first teamed up with Reed Travel Exhibitions in May 1992 when it transported 30 senior buyers on a day return flight from Biggin Hill to Geneva onboard a Crossair Saab 340 turboprop. Since then, the Hosted Buyer flight has evolved into an integral part of the exhibition, and this year Air Charter Travel will be arranging transport for over 250 UK-based Buyers on a Thomas Cook Boeing 757-200.
Passengers experience the full benefits of flying by private charter with dedicated check-in desks bearing the EIBTM logo speeding them through the departure process. Once on board, the buyers are treated to a traditional in-flight service with complimentary bucks fizz, newspapers, and a full English breakfast. A show brochure is available on each seat enabling buyers to forward plan their time at the show. On arrival at Barcelona, Buyers are taken directly to the exhibition, where often within an hour of touch down, they can begin their appointment schedule.
"We're delighted to be marking our twentieth year working with Reed Travel Exhibitions to provide this essential service for the Hosted Buyers. It presents us with an excellent opportunity to showcase the benefits of flying by private charter and demonstrates to these important buyers the added value it can bring to a product launch, business or incentive trip. Charter flights mean clients can save time and money by traveling on the day they want, at the time they need, directly between their preferred destinations," said Tim Procter, Managing Director of Air Charter Travel.
"The Hosted Buyer flight is invaluable, and as we celebrate our 25th birthday it continues to be an essential part of our Hosted Buyer offering," added Graeme Barnett, Reed Travel Exhibitions, EIBTM Event Director, "It means our buyers arrive refreshed, ready, and prepared for the show, enabling them to make the most of their time networking with suppliers, exhibitors, and international colleagues which is exactly what EIBTM is all about," he continued.
Air Charter Travel will be exhibiting at EIBTM in Barcelona November 27-29, 2012 at Booth Number G805. For interview requests, please contact Jane Stanbury +44 7880 873689 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
Hosted Buyers are invited by the exhibition organizers to attend the meeting with a bespoke program of tailor-made exhibitor appointments and are selected according to their influential position within the Meetings Incentive and Conference industry.
