The company specialises in providing a variety of aircraft, from helicopters and executive jets to large commercial airliners from its fleet database of over 45,000 aircraft for commercial and personal use.

ILTM attracted nearly 850 VIP buyers from over 52 countries, which was a 42 per cent increase from last year. The representatives from International Air Charter’s UAE and UK offices were present at the event.

A number of leading travel and tourism agencies from around the world expressed their interest in the premium services that International Air Charter plc (IAC) had to offer. The company has formed several new business alliances, which will further strengthen their market dominance in the niche area of executive aircraft charter.

Hugh Courtenay, chief executive of the company said: “We received an overwhelming response to our range of travel services from leading international travel agencies and high profile buyers involved in luxury travel from around the world. This was an ideal opportunity for us to promote our VIP private aircraft charter service to senior buyers from the luxury leisure, corporate business and incentive markets.”

Private air charter services are most in demand among corporate travellers who need to get to their destination as quickly as possible. Aircraft charter offers the distinct advantages of privacy and unbeatable flexibility, allowing travellers to move at their own pace, without the inconvenience of waiting for connecting flights or delays.

“The Middle East market has shown tremendous potential for the air charter industry as the rapid development of this region has led to an increase in business travellers to all parts of the world, especially Europe,” said Elie Abdo, Director of Business Development, International Air Charter. The company also offers clients a meet and assist service to escort them through otherwise time consuming procedures via private terminals and undergo customs checks with no queues.
