Royal carrier

AIR PARTNER, which holds a Royal Warrant, has disclosed what it calls the top ten cities for private air charter and predicts that new entrants will be joining the league this year as destinations such as Sardinia in Italy gear up to cater for the Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Events (MICE) market.  There are no surprises among the top five: London, Frankfurt, Paris, Geneva and Zurich.  Next come Edinburgh, Amsterdam, then, increasingly, Madrid, Dublin and Stockholm plus Moscow.  The trend of 2009 continues whereby executives flying on business are chartering jets closer to the travel time says the Gatwick-based company.  During the Christmas and New Year period with the threat of strike action by British Airways, Eurostar breaking down and weeks of unprecedented snowfall throughout much of the UK, Air Partner was inundated arranging the despatch of private aircraft  for stranded executives. www.airpartner.com
