Flight plans. Permits. Fuel. Ground handling. The list of complex activities necessary to support travel can go on for an eternity. For large, well established travel groups, it may seem like a no-brainer to leverage one’s in house team when coordinating trips. Meanwhile, smaller travel groups or those who are new to private travel may feel confident that with enough research, they too can guarantee safe, hassle free travel across the globe.
Regardless of the size or novelty of an organisation, using a well-regarded outsourced flight support partner can ensure you have the most experienced support team available, while freeing up critical time for you and your team to focus on successfully running your business.
Behind the Scenes Contributors
When traveling commercially, passengers are rarely exposed to the many functions necessary to provide safe travel. Behind the scenes, thousands of employees are working around the clock to ensure that aircraft are able to transport passengers where they see fit.
And while opting to travel in a charter or business aircraft provides additional comfort and flexibility, many of these same tasks still must be completed in order for a plane to arrive at its destination. With the ever changing world of aviation, particularly during the current pandemic, these tasks can create lasting headaches for even the best internal flight support teams.
Leveraging an established external partner ensures that all of the behind the scenes tasks are accomplished efficiently and monitored on an ongoing basis. This can be especially valuable when traveling to a country that has new rules following Brexit.
Since outsourced partners work with travellers across the globe, they are well versed in managing itineraries that require landing in most cities. In addition, a well managed outsourced partner often offers support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, a critical resource when your meeting destination changes and requires a new travel plan.
Leaving You to Run Your Business
Whether operating a new start-up with five employees or leading a global workforce of 1,000, your work requires the utmost focus to ensure continued success. Using an outsourced partner gives you the time to focus on doing what you do best.
And when every hour of meeting preparation can make the difference between a unorganised sales pitch and the start of a brilliant business relationship, an outsourced partner can provide their unique skill set and make sure you have the most time available to drive business results.
To truly help seal a new business deal, an outsourced provider even has a concierge service to assist with any last minute requests. This can include securing suitable dinner reservations, booking event tickets and more. A benefit like this can be tremendously helpful, especially when traveling to a new city where you previously have not done business.
Running a business is no easy task – and when it comes to travel, it’s critical that you are able to fly where you need to and deliver results. While an internal team can be useful in certain scenarios, and an outsourced flight support operations partner can make all the difference in your future travel, wherever that may be.
