LandFlight is flying high after renewing long-term partnerships with two major airlines at Birmingham Airport.
Based in Solihull, LandFlight, which provides executive private hire coaches and chauffeur-driven cars, has agreed new deals to extend its working relationships with world-renowned airlines Lufthansa and Air India.
The company, whose fleet includes coaches, buses, cars and people carriers, has worked with airlines operating at Birmingham Airport for more than 30 years, providing daily ground transport for up to 25 crew at a time between hotels and BHX terminals.
Air India, the flag carrier airline of India, has agreed a new three-year contract with LandFlight to continue its work with crew and passenger transport in the West Midlands. Meanwhile, Germany’s biggest airline Lufthansa has extended its partnership with the firm for another two years.
Danny Matthews, director at LandFlight, said the contract extensions were testament to a high quality, prompt and reliable service.
He said: “We have worked with both Air India and Lufthansa for a number of years. Their decisions obviously reflect well and we will strive to continue providing the same high-quality service, allowing both to relax safe in the knowledge their crews will be transferred promptly and professionally.”
Kate Tranter, station manager for Lufthansa, said: “The fact we are extending our agreement with LandFlight reflects our satisfaction with the service they provide. Lufthansa will continue to demand the high level of service and punctuality from them, as it is obviously paramount to our operations at Birmingham Airport.”
Vishwanath Panyam, Air India general manager at Birmingham Airport, said: “It’s vital for our crews flying at Birmingham to be able to rely on transfers to and from hotels. It’s for this reason we were delighted to extend our ongoing partnership with LandFlight.”
The contract renewals are another shot in the arm for LandFlight, which has invested £2.3 million over the past year upgrading its fleet, along with rebranding from its former moniker of Silverline, to help maintain its position at the forefront of the industry.
The firm has also launched a new website as part of its rebrand. For more information, visit www.landflight.co.uk.
