From luxury beach holidays in the Mediterranean to stylish city breaks, it’s shaping up to be the year of the vacation. Hybrid working and video calls may be here to stay, but jet-setters are ready to switch off, say goodbye to their home offices, and take to the skies again.
The last two years have been a time of unprecedented change and challenge for the travel industry – but confidence appears to be returning, and momentum is building as we look ahead to the rest of 2022 and into next year.
After two years of lockdowns and travel restrictions, 2022 is a bumper year for women’s sport. The world’s appetite for televised women’s sports soared during the pandemic – and the interest shows no signs of disappearing now that fans can travel and stadiums are full again.
With travel restrictions, social distancing, and limited face to face meetings taking place, the pandemic has directly impacted the meetings and incentives industry. However, recent weeks have seen an upturn in requests, showing positive signs that the industry is recovering.
With a series of lockdowns resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, the automotive industry plunged in the first quarter of 2020. Despite the huge shortage of semiconductors chips, worldwide car sales grew in 2021. As the industry shows signs of recovery, we explore how air charter can support the industry.
The first few weeks in 2022 are expected to be busy for the international team and player travel. “We have been working hard this month on private air travel, bringing players and their families into the UK”, says Mitch Broadstock, the ACC Aviation Senior Business Development Manager.
Private charter is an optimum form of air travel, enabling elite athletes to keep fully in control of their itineraries. Without it, many international sporting events simply would not have happened.
ACC Aviation knows the industry and the pressures of touring. We construct multi-leg tours for full orchestras, rock bands, solo artists, and entourage, as well as road crew – keeping international tours on schedule and on budget.
With challenging circumstances changing the way all of us travelled in the past year, the film and television industry has increasingly turned to charter flights as a solution when moving cast and crew on location, allowing production to restart, and aiding in the industry’s recovery.
