Whisking a director to a London film premier
In August 2013, a major film studio asked Air Charter Service to fly a leading screenwriter, producer and director from Manchester to London with his wife, where they were due to attend the premier of his latest movie.
The studio wanted to minimise the couple’s transfer times in both destinations, so we needed to find a solution that avoided airport check-ins.
Routes: Manchester > London
Aircraft: Eurocopter EC135
The client originally requested a fixed-wing aircraft, but we suggested chartering a helicopter instead as this would allow them to keep the passengers’ transfer time as short as possible. Our knowledgeable team used their unrivalled contacts to source a Eurocopter EC135 twin turbine engine helicopter with two pilots, allowing the travellers to board quickly without needing to check-in for each flight. We then ensured the aircraft’s maintenance schedule and operator records were up-to-date and worked closely with the client to submit all paperwork in time.
The Finer Details
24/7 Service: On the day of the flight, we kept the studio up-to-date on the helicopter’s movements throughout the charter.
