Demand grows for a return to blockbuster year of sport

With the draw announced for this year’s highly anticipated World Cup in Qatar in November, and travel restrictions continuing to ease around the world, anticipation is building for an exciting line-up of sports events for sports fanatics and spectators this summer.

After several years of emptier stadiums and spectator-free events such as the Winter Olympics, optimism is growing for a blockbuster summer of sport across the world at key sporting events such as Wimbledon in London, the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, the PGA Golf Tour Championship and US Open in the United States.

Air Partner, the global aviation services group and specialists in private jets and charter, has seen an increase in enquiries in group charter flights, from groups such as corporates, sports fans and families to watch key sporting events, take in the atmosphere and get closer to all the exciting sporting action.

Air Partner’s charter flights are customized to each team or group, providing on-site and on-board representatives who closely monitor the entire operation and assist with anything the group needs during boarding, flight, and de-boarding. Elevating the experience, Air Partner also handles private terminal operations to avoid main terminal delays and ensure a faster, more efficient trip.

With bookings for leisure and business travel rapidly recovering, groups are making up for lost time and organizing unforgettable trips to show support for their beloved sports teams whether a local sport or elite international competitions. According to recent data from The International Air Transport Association (IATA), global passenger volumes increased by 115.9% in February 2022 compared to February 2021, a significant improvement in business and leisure travel and confidence in traveling.
