Hunt & Palmer’s Commercial Aviation team has facilitated a series of charter flights for South Africa’s rugby team this month, enabling the Springboks to get a couple of friendly European matches under their belts ahead of the 2023 World Cup.
Their first tournament match starts on Sunday 10 September in Marseille – against Scotland.
“Air charter is always a sensible and smart option to transport elite sports teams owing to the flexibility and convenience,” highlighted Simon Edwards.
“With private charter, departure and arrival times can be adjusted – even on the day – to suit the team.
“A chartered aircraft enables all associated kit and equipment, including medical supplies, to be carried in the cabin, along with the team, coaches and physios.
“Inflight catering is selected to meet dietary needs and preferences and delivered fresh to the aircraft steps, while the team can relax in the privacy and comfort of their own cabin.”
