Football transfer window opening sees private jet bookings with Air Partner take off

Air Partner - 22 May 2018

London, UK, 22 May: Air Partner, the leading private aviation group, are expecting enquiries for private jet travel to soar this football transfer window especially with the World Cup placing players in the spotlight.


The bi-annual transfer window sees multimillion-pound footballers jetting all over the world in attempt to join new clubs and secure new contracts worth tens of millions of pounds. Clubs will also be keen to tie up deals before players jet off with their respective countries for the World Cup in Russia.


Last year’s deadline day, which sport pundits claim was the biggest in football history, generated a record spend on private jets as footballers and clubs scrambled to fill positions.


Private jet bookings within the football transfer period look set to soar as the last transfer window saw nearly a 20 per cent increase in activity through Manchester and London during the latter stages of the window.


Julia Timms, Chief Marketing Officer said: “The football transfer window kicks off a busy time for us and we will be working around the clock to beat the transfer deadline and arrange scores of flights for clients over the coming months.


“A great strength of Air Partner is our unparalleled level of service allowing clients to set their own schedule, save precious time and travel in comfort and privacy, which is necessary for athletes during this busy time, allowing them to avoid unnecessary fatigue, stress and queues.”


Air Partner have decades of experience flying top sports teams and players to key competitions, including the Premier League, UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League on group charter aircraft around the world.


Air Partner is able to provide clients with a high level of service and flexibility. Account Managers specialise in last minute logistical planning and complex multi-leg trips, which allow clients to visit multiple locations over a short space of time hassle-free. Air Partner’s use of quieter regional airports and private terminals means clients can arrive closer to their final destination while also avoiding eagerly awaiting footballs fans.
