PremiAir, one of the UKâ€™s leading private aviation charter companies, is making its debut at the International Luxury Travel Market (ILTM) in Cannes during 7-10 December. Reinforcing its presence, PremiAir Group Managing Director, David McRobert will participate as a panelist in the prestigious annual travel industry leadersâ€™ forum which takes place on 6 December, the first day of the event.
Moderated by Graham Boynton, Ultra Travelâ€™s editor, this yearâ€™s forum is entitled â€œGlobal Trends in Luxury Travel.â€ David will take the opportunity to highlight his views on future executive charter trends, and discuss how the luxury travel business can find and retain high value customers, speaking from a business jet and executive helicopter operatorâ€™s perspective. PremiAir also manages Londonâ€™s only CAA-licensed heliport, the newly redeveloped London Heliport in Battersea, set to be a popular destination for 2012 Olympics visitors and a likely discussion point for visitors at this yearâ€™s event. PremiAir is sharing a stand with sister company, luxury hotel group von Essen (Stand No 0171).
PremiAir will also be co-hosting 14 VIP travel buyers visiting the exhibition. The guests will experience the full â€œPremiAir service,â€ spending the night at newly opened, von-Essen owned, hotel Verta, which, together with the impressive London Heliport passenger terminal, forms Londonâ€™s â€˜Vertical Gatewayâ€™, the first integrated hotel-heliport solution in Europe. Early morning flights by Sikorsky S76 helicopters will deliver the guests, in just 10 minutes, to two awaiting Learjet 45â€™s at PremiAirâ€™s new London Biggin Hill base from where they will be whisked to the French Riviera and the private airport at Cannes Mandelieu.
â€œThe luxury travel industry is an important element of our client base which is why we have taken the decision to get involved with ILTM this year. Hosting the buyers gives us a great showcase to present our fixed and rotary wing services and chat with them about their thoughts on business in 2011 and beyond. We look forward to communicating just how simple, cost effective and versatile private jet and helicopter charter can be,â€ says McRobert.
ILTM, organised by Reed Exhibitions, is the only business-to-business event dedicated to showcasing high-end travel suppliers to specialist luxury travel trade buyers from around the globe through an unrivalled pre-scheduled appointment system.
