As international travel restrictions lift and COVID-19 ebbs and flows, many companies are seeking transportation alternatives for group travel as in-person meetings and events are getting back on track. From small meetings to incentive trips and large-scale conferences, Air Partner offers air charter solutions worldwide to help corporate travelers get to their destinations safely and in style.

“Based on the recent inquiries and bookings we received in 2021, we predict more businesses will invest in private charters for their MICE travel needs with added emphasis surrounding employee health and safety,” says Simon Moore, senior vice president of group charter U.S. for Air Partner.

For more than 60 years, Air Partner has given companies the opportunity to choose their preferred aircraft from a wide variety of options, such as a private Airbus or larger Gulfstream ideal for transatlantic travel. The company allows customers to design a flight schedule and event itinerary that suits their traveling requirements and to select preferences such as socially distanced seating configurations and temperature checks.

Additional benefits include private terminal and lounge access globally; custom on-board dining with the option to curate a special menu; branding options such as designing the exterior of the aircraft, headrest covers and in-flight entertainment; and assistance with check-in, luggage and pre-flight catering for larger events.

Air Partner has 17 locations globally, with its U.S. headquarters located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and global headquarters situated alongside Gatwick Airport in the United Kingdom.
