Italy-based helicopter charter operator HoverFly has joined the Luxaviation Helicopters Charter Alliance. The alliance, which was launched by Luxaviation Helicopters in March 2019, enables members to call on each other to provide what the company describes as a truly international VIP helicopter charter service, connecting partners in Europe, South America and Asia-Pacific.
“The Luxaviation Helicopters Charter Alliance has had a very successful launch period, and we are pleased that we are continuing to partner with leading regional helicopter charter operators, such as HoverFly, to offer a truly seamless and connected service for our clients,” said Charlotte Pedersen, CEO, Luxaviation Helicopters, which is part of the Luxaviation Group.
“HoverFly is the leading helicopter charter operator in Italy and, when it comes to safety and customer service, shares the very same expectations and standards as Luxaviation Helicopters, which is exactly what we look for in new members,” continued Pedersen. “We look forward to providing our clients with an even more expansive service in Italy and beyond, through HoverFly and other members of the Charter Alliance.”
All alliance members must undergo an approval process to ensure they meet Luxaviation Helicopters’ standards in quality and safety management. All members also benefit from Luxaviation Helicopters’ shared practices in industry certifications, efficiencies and customer service.
“The decision to join the Luxaviation Helicopters Charter Alliance has been easy and valuable – we will now be able to provide our customers with access to a wide-ranging international network, unlocking more of the world’s regions for them,” said Massimo Vilardi, sales and marketing director, HoverFly. “We can also handle requests from other alliance members who are looking to explore the beautiful Italian coastlines, ancient cities and vineyards by helicopter.”
The Luxaviation Helicopters Charter Alliance is now comprised of HoverFly, as well as ExecuJet’s helicopter fleet in Mexico and South Africa, Philippines-based PhilJets, Spain-based Hélity, US-based HeliFlite, Austria-based HeliAustria, France-based Azur Hélicoptère and UK-based Starspeed.
