Air Charter Travel celebrates 20 years of flying Hosted Buyers to EIBTM

Air Charter Travel celebrates its 20 years of collaboration with reed Trael Exhibitions by providing its twentieth Hosted Buyer flight to EIBTM.

UK-based Air Charter Travel is celebrating 20 years of collaboration with Reed Travel Exhibitions this November when it provides its twentieth Hosted Buyer flight to the premier meetings, incentives, events and business travel industry event, EIBTM in Barcelona between 27-29 November. Air Charter Travel first teamed up with Reed Travel Exhibitions in May 1992 when it transported 30 senior buyers on a day return flight from Biggin Hill to Geneva on board a Crossair Saab 340 turboprop. Since then the Hosted Buyer flight has evolved into an integral part of the exhibition and this year Air Charter Travel will be arranging transport for over 250 UK-based Buyers on a Thomas Cook Boeing 757-200.

Passengers experience the full benefits of flying by private charter with dedicated check-in desks bearing the EIBTM logo speeding them through the departure process. Once on board the buyers are treated to a traditional in-flight service with complimentary bucks fizz, newspapers and a full English breakfast. A show brochure is available on each seat enabling buyers to forward plan their time at the show. On arrival at Barcelona Buyers are taken directly to the exhibition, where often within an hour of touch down, they can begin their appointment schedule.

“We’re delighted to be marking our twentieth year working with Reed Travel Exhibitions to provide this essential service for the Hosted Buyers. It presents us with an excellent opportunity to showcase the benefits of flying by private charter and demonstrates to these important buyers the added value it can bring to a product launch, business or incentive trip. Charter flights mean clients can save time and money by travelling on the day they want, at the time they need directly between their preferred destinations,” said Tim Procter, Managing Director of Air Charter Travel. “The Hosted Buyer flight is invaluable and as we celebrate our 25th birthday it continues to be an essential part of our Hosted Buyer offering,” added Graeme Barnett, Reed Travel Exhibitions, EIBTM Event Director, “it means our buyers arrive refreshed, ready and prepared for the show, enabling them to make the most of their time networking with suppliers, exhibitors and international colleagues which is exactly what EIBTM is all about,” he continued.

Air Charter Travel will be exhibiting at EIBTM in Barcelona 27 – 29 November 2012 at Booth Number G805.
