Away fixtures are an inevitability in the world of sport and, when ground arrangements aren’t an option, tackling air travel can be a challenge.
You need flights that get your team to their destination as quickly and efficiently as possible, minimising the amount of time they’re in transit to ensure they’re ready to play at their best.
Our charter experts work with you to ensure that every detail of your flight itinerary matches the specifications of you and your team, which is why, when you need air travel arrangements that work perfectly with your fixture schedule, the air charter travel for sports teams options with ACC is in a league of its own.
An aircraft to suit you
Chartering means choosing an aircraft that meets your needs, no matter what size your squad. So, whether you’re transporting your athletes and support staff or bringing some fans along for the experience, our experts can find the right plane for you.
Having the use of a private terminal is about more than just the VIP experience – the dedicated check-in and security facilities ensure that your team can be whisked through to the lounge in no time, where they can relax in comfort and enjoy complimentary catering. And when it’s time to board, the aircraft is only metres away.
No charges for excess baggage
Not always the most obvious advantage, but travelling as a team usually means taking lots of kit, and that means extra charges on scheduled flights. When we charter an aircraft on your behalf we create a solution built around your needs, including any and all luggage you take with you.
It’s a fact that your players need to be well-rested to be at their best. Subject to airport restrictions, we can create a charter itinerary that works for you, departing straight after a match if necessary. Similarly, the aircraft waits for you, rather than the other way around, so you needn’t worry even if the game goes into extra time.
Fuelling your team for success
We understand that your team have strict nutritional requirements in order to be able to perform at their peak. With an aircraft charter, our experts can work with your nutritionist and the aircraft operator to create a menu that ensures the on-board catering meets all of your athletes’ dietary needs.
An aircraft to suit your budget
Sometimes, when teams are travelling to destinations poorly served by scheduled operators, chartering an aircraft can be the only viable option. We understand, however, that you need to make sure that your air travel requirements remain cost-efficient. Our charter experts scour the market to source the aircraft that best meets your specifications and budget.
It’s a well-known fact that scheduled services only offer a limited number of direct routes and match venues aren’t always conveniently located near hub airports. When your team charter an aircraft, our experts craft a bespoke itinerary, including a flight route between the departure and destination airports that best suit you.
Being able to fly direct and into a preferred airport often means that transfer times can be kept to a minimum, saving you valuable time that would otherwise be wasted on the road.
If you’re looking to create a full team experience, then featuring your branding throughout the flight is the way forward. From simple touches such as coasters, napkins and headrest covers to crew uniforms and a complete overhaul of the aircraft’s livery – the sky is the limit!
“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.”
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.
