In October 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic, Air Charter Service was asked to fly an orchestra from a tour date in Switzerland to their next performances in Toulouse and Venice.
Route: Budapest > Toulouse > Venice
Aircraft: Fokker 100
While the orchestra’s tour manager reassessed the tour to ensure it was still financially viable with the lost revenue from the cancelled Swiss shows, our team quickly revised the route to depart from an earlier performance in Budapest. We sourced a Fokker 100, which was the most cost-effective option and could easily accommodate the 80 passengers and their instruments; and negotiated with the operator to ensure we could reschedule if there were any further logistical obstacles. Finally, we arranged for each member of the group to undergo a Covid-19 test before travelling.
THE FINER DETAILS
Extra Touches: We arranged for pre-printed boarding passes and fast-tracked the group through security.
Unrivalled Service: The client received up-to-the-minute information on positioning flights, check-in desk numbers and departure gates, ensuring a seamless departure and minimal contact with others.
