DUBAI, UAE, September 23, 2010 - In the business of Aircraft Charters a quick response and
resourceful attitude are just as important as having industry contacts. Air
Charter International, a reputable aviation services provider known to go
that extra mile for its customers, proved this very point by efficiently
chartering a flight for a group of high net worth individuals in a difficult
The flight included the transport of nine Nigerian VIPs from
Jeddah in Saudi Arabia to Khartoum in Sudan. Scheduled to depart on the 8th
of September (incidentally the first day of Eid), the flight was delayed due
to a difficulty in obtaining permissions to travel on that day. Due to this
fact the VIPs turned to the reputable services of Air Charter International
and its dynamic Charter sales team.
"We received the call on the evening of the 7th and at once
set about looking for a solution," Clifford Williams, charter sales broker at
Air Charter International, said with regards to the flight. He explained that
the situation in Saudi Arabia was delicate because of the approach of Eid the
next day, which is a public holiday and must be observed by all corporations.
"It was a difficult task because Saudi Arabia has very strict regulations
about activity on the first day of Eid," he said.
Despite these obstacles, Williams and his colleagues on the ACI
team managed to attain the much awaited special permission to fly out of
Saudi Arabia on the 8th of September. "It felt like a major victory on our
(ACI) part because of all the time and effort we had put in to acquiring the
permissions for our client."
A dedicated team player, Williams worked on the inquiry all
night and personally went to meet a Saudi operator at five in the morning on
the day of the flight, to ensure that the permissions were obtained and the
VIPs were able to fly later that morning.
At nine o'clock on the morning of the first day of Eid, the
group of Nigerian VIPs boarded a Hawker 750 medium-size jet and began their
journey to Sudan. Showing the aviation industry that all things are possible
with determination and innovation, the Charter sales team at Air Charter
International set new standards in service by taking such initiative.
