Enhance your sports teams air charter experience

The experts at Chapman Freeborn have an in-depth understanding of the importance of nutrition for sports professionals. We will secure a catering solution perfectly aligned to the nutritional requirements of your individual team members.

We will work with your team’s chefs to understand menus and guarantee the timing of meals, liaising with any associated catering companies where necessary to ensure the most nutritious meals for our passengers.

Different sports require different equipment which means luggage requirements vary hugely from team to team. Chapman Freeborn will secure the correct aircraft to suit your team’s specific equipment and luggage needs.

Where possible we will arrange for luggage to be screened prior to your team’s arrival to the aircraft, speeding up the process and enabling the passengers to turn up shortly before their departure rather than hours beforehand.

Personalise your journey

Chapman Freeborn works with a range of suppliers to ensure the best amenities are provided on board every sports team charter flight.

We can work with you prior to the group air charter to source various items to personalise your journey, the only limit is your imagination!

A Chapman Freeborn Flight Representative can join you on-board during your flight allowing passengers to rest undisturbed, knowing that we are on hand to liaise with the crew on your behalf where required.

Private jet specialists

In addition to team travel, our private jet specialists are available to arrange flights for players travelling for last-minute transfer talks, medicals, and personal engagements.

Chapman Freeborn has been involved in brokering private jet charters since our earliest days. Private air charter allows you to fly at a schedule that suits you, to and from the most convenient airports and puts you in control of every element of your journey.

Leave behind the stress of crowded commercial airports. Simply arrive at the private terminal minutes before your departure and walk straight onto your aircraft.

Maximum flexibility

Chartering an aircraft through us is all about choice and control. There is no membership fee, no acquisition fee, and no minimum number of flying hours. You’re not locked into a long term contract or tied to using a specific aircraft type or fleet.

Our expertise comes from years of listening to clients and meeting their exact requirements.

From small jets for short-hops to large cabin aircraft for international sports group charters, we can arrange access to thousands of charter aircraft worldwide.
