Air charter broker Charter Advisory is becoming a new member of the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA).
Founded in 2014 by experienced and passionate aviators Martin Fec and Peter Duchovny, the Prague-based company has been driven by its passion for the industry to provide affordable business aviation transportation to more travellers. Under the leadership and direction of its founders, this young company has grown its management team and improved the quality of its flight services. It was therefore no surprise that Charter Advisory became one of the largest charter broker companies in the Czech and Slovak region.
Becoming a member of EBAA shows that Charter Advisory knows its onions when it comes to air brokerage and the dynamic world of business aviation generally says Fec, who continues: “We believe in working together, and we are of the view that supporting each other is more helpful and fruitful than competing. Business aviation might be seen as a niche market, but it is a significant part of the European economy and it plays a vital role in transportation nowadays. Therefore, becoming a part of EBAA is an important step for us.”
"I am happy to see Charter Advisory join the EBAA. Air charter brokers make up a very dynamic section of the EBAA's membership. I am convinced that Charter Advisory will contribute to EBAA's mission of enabling responsible, sustainable growth for business aviation, enhancing connectivity and creating opportunities,“ adds EBAA senior manager, member services Paul Walsh.
Despite the flight shortages and disruptions that affected many during the recent pandemic, Charter Advisory swam against the tide and became very popular for doing so. The company organised several repatriation flights in 2020, selling seats on Boeing 767 and 737-800 flights at affordable rates to those who were stuck abroad and couldn't pay for expensive business jet flights. This bold step helped many return to their homes in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia and Germany.
“Looking back to how we started, and now becoming a member of EBAA, it has been nothing but a journey of hard work and sleepless nights for our management team and staff. It has been a wonderful experience, and I am very grateful to our team,” adds Fec.
