Chapman Freeborn launches new group tickets division

World-renowned for its award-winning aircraft charter services, Chapman Freeborn has announced it is to expand its range of services with the launch of a specialist division offering group tickets on scheduled flights.

Depending on the client’s requirements and budget, Chapman Freeborn’s new Group Tickets team can provide a full charter, scheduled service tickets, or a combination of both elements to offer the perfect group travel solution.

The company has over 30 global offices and possesses an expert local market knowledge of airlines around the world – making it an invaluable service to travel agents, corporate travel managers, and MICE travel organisers.

Markus Hilchenbach from Chapman Freeborn said:

“Whether it’s for 10 passengers or 1000 passengers, we can now offer the most advantageous and cost-effective group travel solution. As with our charter services, the Group Tickets team place great emphasis on quality customer service and safety.”

He added:

“The feedback from the travel industry has been overwhelmingly positive. Clients are finding that a one-stop-shop for group air travel is proving both time-effective and less stressful.”

Tailored flight solutions for travel managers and travel agents

Coordinating and block-booking large numbers of tickets with airlines can be a headache for travel managers, with the potential for groups to be split over multiple different flights.

Chapman Freeborn aims to make this process as easy and cost-effective as possible. The Group Tickets team uses Chapman Freeborn’s global network and the latest Amadeus technology to identify to best flight solutions – whether that is a full charter, group tickets with an airline, or a combination of the two.

Travel managers and passengers are directly issued with detailed itineraries electronically – making the whole process as seamless as possible. Alternatively, Amadeus users can access the booking information directly and with full transparency.

Payments for the service can also be made using AirPlus – a corporate travel payment solution used by thousands of businesses worldwide to simplify day-to-day corporate travel management.

The Group Tickets process is simple, fast and transparent – allowing travel managers to concentrate on the essentials.
