Air Partner looks to keep people flying in face of virus
Air Partner's Corporate Air Shuttle programme helps travel managers reduce time spent on all aspects of the travel process. Through Air Partner Protect, the company is able to provide expert advice.

Air Partner has noted a rapid increase in requests for corporate shuttles, with businesses citing COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) and pursuing better travel options.

Air Partner's corporate air shuttles allow companies to arrange private flights on a regularly scheduled basis for their employees between any city pairs. These shuttles offer convenience, particularly at a time like now, when commercial airlines are cutting some of their regularly scheduled flights. Additionally, private corporate shuttles provide a way to minimise exposure to large group gatherings such as crowded commercial terminals.

“In the midst of a situation like the coronavirus outbreak, corporate shuttles are cost-effective, critical solutions to mitigate the impact on corporations and government agencies, helping keep their businesses running as smoothly as possible,” says Air Partner's CEO Mark Briffa. “With 24/7 support from dedicated account managers around the world, we're able to work hand-in-hand with organisations to customise a flight experience and schedule, so their teams can continue essential work and meetings without delay or worry, even in times of crisis.”

Air Partner's Corporate Air Shuttle programme, along with its customised travel booking tool, helps travel managers for large and small organisations reduce time spent on all aspects of the travel process. The shuttle programme can be especially cost-effective for groups when there aren't any non-stop flights offered by scheduled service, very infrequent flights or flights that require a connection. With chartering private aircraft for employees and executives, corporate shuttles can fly in and out of smaller regional airports that are closer to a company's business epicentre, thus making business more efficient, leading to increased productivity, confidentiality and time savings which ultimately are of great value to the corporate bottom line. Often the group can board the aircraft from a private terminal, reducing the potential exposure found in commercial airport terminals. Air Partner offers more reassurance during a time of uncertainty to ensure business stays on track.

Through its unique new service offering, Air Partner Protect, the company is able to provide expert advice and reassurance at every step, connecting organisations with approved aircraft operators that follow strict hygiene precautions.
