Through an example, Bergman explains the complexity of such a group trip and explains why ATPI Group Travel’s expertise is so desirable for companies and associations. “A while ago we received a request from a large international company that wanted to go to Eastern Europe with over a thousand people. This is a very large group anyway, but everyone came from somewhere else. One is from a small village in America, one lives in Colombia, and one comes from Indonesia. You then have to figure out which airports are suitable for these people. Then almost nothing flies directly to their desired final destination, so everyone had to transfer, all at different times and locations. And of course it should also be as affordable as possible. Well, we’ll find out then Everything, we calculate the costs, and in this case we also define some cases and conditions. You have to deal with different time zones, hence jet lag, specific obligations at national borders and customs, airlines with different baggage requirements, different check-in times, you name it. Whatever you want.With all our expertise and experience, we can involve the client and guide him in this process.
Finding the right flights and transportation options requires a great deal of research. “But the people in our group travel division think this is great,” Bergman says. “Researching and finding the best options gives them a real boost. They are people with a passion for aviation. I think this also indicates that more than half of them have been with us for more than ten years. ATPI Group Travel is a very nice division, which really enriches us as ATPI and takes A lot of complex work is out of the hands of customers.
