A very special aircraft for a very special group

ABJ146

Creativity plays an important role in organizing an incentive trip to create a truly unique and different experience that surprises participants and makes them feel special.

Apart from the destination and the on-site itinerary, the flight is another crucial element in any incentive trip, as it represents the beginning and end of an unforgettable experience.

In July, we had the pleasure of organizing a very special charter flight for an exclusive incentive program where maximum care and focus on the company image, along with offering the participants an experience with a WOW factor were key aspects. The participants, a group of VIP golfers, enjoyed a stay at St Andrews, one of the oldest and historically most important towns in Scotland. Its location by the sea, with large areas of sand dunes and green meadows is one of the reasons why, centuries ago, St Andrews became famous as the most prestigious place in the world to play golf.

A trip like this also requires a very special aircraft, and for this occasion we chartered an impressive VIP aircraft, an Avro Business Jet, to take the group from Scotland to London. During the flight, passengers enjoyed a traditional English afternoon tea with tea and other British specialities to complete the on-board experience.

Choosing the right aircraft for each trip and taking care of every single detail of the flight to make sure passengers enjoy a gratifying and totally unique experience are priorities for Europair. That’s why we are always especially proud to find out that both our client and the passengers have been impressed by the aircraft and the service provided during the whole flight.

But what is an VIP aircraft?

VIP aircraft (or VIP airliners) are conventional commercial aircraft such as A320 or B737 that have been modified to accommodate groups of up to 50 passengers or more in a VIP configuration with Business Class seats. They are usually divided into several cabins offering maximum passenger comfort. There are models, such as the Boeing Business Jet, which feature a private suite with double bed and bathroom with shower, first class seats that can be converted into beds, conference rooms or even a gym. These luxurious aircraft are often used for air transport by senior executives, boards of directors, major personalities or heads of state. Their long distance performance combined high levels of comfort and on-board amenities make them ideal for non-stop intercontinental flights.

The Avro Business Jet – For a luxurious flying experience

The Avro Business Jet we chartered for this incentive trip is a spectacular VIP aircraft with capacity for 46 passengers. This modern and quiet aircraft impresses with its elegant and luxurious interior design and white leather seats. The Avro Business Jet (ABJ146) belongs to the British Aerospace 146 (BAe146) family, built by British Aerospace between 1983 and 2002.

The Swiss airline Crossair, part of the Swissair group, gave the aircraft its funny nickname “Jumbolino” due to its 4 engines, wide body and spacious cabin. It is considered to be one of the most silent reactors capable of taking off and landing on short runways, even at airports with restrictions, making it an ideal aircraft for short flights within Europe.

… and this is how the Avro Business Jet looks like

    VIP aviation services provide private air charters or private jets for companies and corporations, which need high level of confidentiality. These air travels are tailor-made exclusively to pamper their clients during the travel. In addition to sufficient legroom, highly comfortable seats and a luxurious ambience, the guests are provided with choicest food. This is something you are never going to get in a commercial flight.
