General Announcements and News Articles about ProCharter
ProCharter is delighted to announce the completion of yet another successful summer season. With aircraft based in the UK, Germany and Ireland operating for both our airline and tour operating client base ProCharter’s key suppliers have operated in excess of 5000 flying hours and carried over 120000 passengers to their holiday destinations. ProCharter’s MD Andy Fleming commented “We are obviously extremely happy with our summer performance, and more importantly that our suppliers delivered a first class product against strict kpi’s resulting in excellent on time performance and feedback from our customers.”
Working with one of our key partners in the Gulf, ProCharter were recently instrumental in the tender and successful award of a time critical cargo contract. The cargo originated in the UAE and over a series of flights, operated by B747-200f, was successfully delivered to its required location of Kabul, Afghanistan. The series of flights operated without issue and to strict time sensitive schedules. With business in the Middle East growing steadily and plans in hand to open a regional office in Dubai during 2013 make ProCharter your first call for any aircraft requirements, be they passenger or cargo.
ProCharter has appointed Gavin Archibald to head up a newly created sports division. Gavin has a wealth of aviation experience gained over many years in the industry and has also, more recently, held senior positions in sports event management. Gavin will be based at our Gatwick office and will also have responsibility for our Adhoc and VIP charters. Consolidating these products within a dedicated team will ensure our ethos of ‘customer first, excellence always’ is delivered every time. Commenting on this appointment, Andy Fleming, Managing Director, “I am very pleased to welcome Gavin to the team, we have worked together in the past and I have always been impressed with his level of knowledge and professional, friendly, transparent approach, which sits very well with the way we do things at ProCharter.”
In a very competitive aviation market it has never been more important to continue offering ‘added value’. With this in mind and our promise to always deliver on our ‘customer first excellence always’ philosophy. ProCharter are pleased to now be able to offer a complete operations support function, this includes ATC flight planning, flight monitoring, civil landing and overflight permits, diplomatic clearances and aviation fuel purchasing. Commenting on this Andy Fleming, Managing Director said “it makes absolute sense for us to be able to effectively offer a ‘one stop shop’ for all our clients aviation needs, with some of our competitors moving away from this strategy, we see an opportunity to increase value and further expand our aviation support function. The added services are available from 1 August 2012, 365 days a year, H24.”
ProCharter are preparing for a busy summer 2012 season. With the winter season now drawing to a close where we have seenProCharter’s historical and well established markets such as Scandinavia and the UK perform well and inline with management expectations at the same time as the business diversifying geographically into new growth markets. The Scandinavian operation has been particularly promising with the introduction of a new carrier into this market and with yet another successful season now complete we look forward to expanding our portfolio of services in this market further at the same time as developing our strategy of delivering year round flying for our suppliers and capacity for our customers to meet their exact seasonal requirements. We remain at your disposal for any IT / ACMI / ADHOC requirements
The summer season has ended well despite the economic downturn being experienced Worldwide. ProCharter’s wide geographical spread of business has limited our exposure and we are pleased that all our suppliers operated in excess of their ‘guaranteed hours’, a great achievement in this difficult market, the aircraft have been successfully redelivered back to our suppliers and with some repeat business already agreed we are looking forward to summer 2012. Our attention is now firmly on our winter business with some new suppliers operating for ProCharter. We are confident of a successful operation for both ProCharter and our customers.
ProCharter is pleased to announce that it will again be basing a Boeing 737 in Copenhagen international airport for the summer 2012 season. The aircraft will operate to mainly Eastern Mediterranean destinations with the capacity profiled towards the summer months. The fact this business has been secured so early in the summer 2012 contracting cycle demonstrates the quality of the product offered and delivered to the client. ProCharter enjoys strong relationships in Scandinavia with both clients and suppliers, with additional aircraft planned for the region and with the Copenhagen aircraft becoming a year round operation, this will ensure ProCharter stays at the forefront of the ‘inclusive tour’ seat sale market.
ProCharter will supply a B757-200er to be based in NCL for a leading UK Airline. Working with a key supplier, ProCharter again sourced the optimum solution to secure the business. ProCharter MD Andy Fleming commented “this further cements the relationships and success we enjoy in our market, supplying aviation capacity to match season demand is at the heart of what we do and ensures ProCharter leads the field in this market.”
