How can aircraft charter get you to the games? World Cup 2018, Russia

Air Partner - 20 Dec 2017

As the 2018 football World Cup in Russia fast approaches, supporters, corporate groups and football teams are starting to make their travel plans.

With Russia being the largest country in the world, competition matches have been spread across eleven cities. At Air Partner, we offer a reliable, discreet and bespoke service, this blog explains why aircraft charter with Air Partner can be the best option to get to the sporting event of the year.


How can aircraft charter get you to the games?

Offering a whole suite of charter services, from large aircraft (including VIP configured aircraft) that are ideal for big corporate groups and football teams to private jets that are suitable for smaller groups of people, Air Partner is fully equipped for any travel request to Russia. No matter the number or nature of passengers, private charter will ensure an enjoyable, relaxed and memorable part of our passengers’ World Cup experience.

For many years, Air Partner has been the charter provider of choice for travelling to the world’s largest sporting events. During the 2014 Brazilian and 2010 South African World Cups we flew over 16,000 passengers, including teams, sponsors and journalists. Throughout the tournaments 1,500 corporates entrusted Air Partner to get their clients and employees through some of the most congested air space and security protocols with the minimum of fuss and inconvenience. Just this summer, we organised 79 flights to football matches and events, clocking up over 90,000 miles of flying time.


What are the benefits of private charter over scheduled services?  

Charter is predominantly chosen over scheduled services due to its flexibility. Particularly when there is a tight travel itinerary involved, scheduled services are often not flexible enough to meet clients’ schedules. Furthermore, charter means you will remain unaffected to any schedule service disruption and much less likely to experience any delays. When a major global event is involved, such as the World Cup, it is also worth considering private jet to avoid the crowds and queues at some of the large airports. Flying privately affords the privilege of a quiet, stress-free and private travel experience.

All in all, with next year’s World Cup taking place in a destination with a complex travel network, aircraft charter opens up many more possibilities and different options. Customers can be transported even closer to their final destination rather than be tied to scheduled services and larger airports. 


Can aircraft charter provide a better travel experience to the World Cup?

Along with aircraft charter, Air Partner is also offering an exclusive and seamless travel experience, working with like-minded partners to provide comprehensive private security and ground transportation services to enhance clients’ travel experience. Our fully vetted and experienced partners can carry out planning and contingency security arrangements, as well as service all of your ground transportation needs whilst you are in Russia.

Not only this Air Partner can curate an entire experience from start to finish for clients wishing to truly impress customers or employees on their way to Russia, such as an immersive on board brand experience.
