There are few occasions more glamorous than the launch of a new hotel.
At the end of last year, ACC flew more than 250 guests, including celebrities, stage equipment and wardrobe, for the official launch of a luxury resort.
To ensure passengers received the full VIP experience, we used one of Stansted’s premier private terminals, Inflite Jet Centre.
The guests then boarded the exclusively chartered Boeing 767-300, with the interior prominently featuring the client’s branding.
On the Saturday evening, the official launch for the hotel took place, with well-known performing artists providing entertainment into the small hours of Sunday morning.
The resort launched its new beach club on Sunday afternoon and evening, with DJs performing sets throughout the day.
Senior Account Manager, Suzanne Sharp, commented: “It was a pleasure to help make the launch such a memorable event.
“For occasions such as this, it’s important to deliver an amazing experience at every stage. This is where chartering a plane for exclusive use comes into its own. Every detail is tailored to your specifications, allowing you to make an impact from the moment your guests check-in.”
“Excellent service – polite, courteous and helpful throughout. The flight was arranged at short notice and the timings were perfect to enable us to travel to take part in our game. The flights were very smooth and the efficient manner in which we were transported to and from our destination contributed greatly to the enjoyment and success of the trip. Thank you for all your assistance.”
“This was such a stressful project being the first charter that I have had to do for a client. They were also a new client as well, so we were trying to wow them with our service. Without ACC’s help, none of this would have happened, they were invaluable and went over and above what they needed to do. Their patience was amazing with what were often last minute alterations. Thanks so much guys, you definitely will be recommended for future projects. It was a pleasure dealing with you.”
ACC Aviation reports a more than 20% year on year growth in the first quarter of 2021, despite the harsh impact on aviation brought about by the global pandemic. This follows a 200% year on year growth in charter sales in 2020.
As the Institute of Travel Management’s Revive virtual conference kicks off, ACC’s Director of Charter, Richard Smith, talks about the role of corporate shuttles and how dedicated charter flights will continue to be a vital business travel tool post-pandemic.
With reduced availability of scheduled flights, organisations needing to move essential personnel are increasingly turning to air charter. We talk about some of the key benefits to businesses of using air charter for corporate travel.
ACC Aviation welcomes David Macdonald as Head of Global Business Development to maximise commercial opportunities across ACC’s complementary service proposition.
While it might not be everything we’d wish for, flying home for Christmas on a private jet could just be the golden ticket to end the year on a high.
With a year like 2020, it’s safe to say that you have probably never needed a holiday more. And, when it comes to getting away from it all, nothing puts the world on pause like jetting off to your very own private villa retreat.
