Reasons To Hire a Charter Flight For National Team Supporters

After the last few years have been a terrible time for sports fans due to Covid-19, the most important competition in the world of football is finally here. It will be held in Qatar between 20 November, when the opening match between the hosts of the 2022 tournament and Ecuador will take place, and 18 December, when the two best-performing football teams to date will face each other in order to lift the coveted golden trophy in Lusail. 

Although the health restrictions due to the coronavirus are now much less and there are currently no travel restrictions to follow your national team, the pandemic continues to increase. Therefore, flying on a private plane is one of the best ideas to reduce the risk of contagion and to enjoy the greatest show on Earth of the world's top sport. Both the national teams and supporters must be prepared for this event, and, actually, organising a charter flight is really easy. Fixtures and Results

Affordable Luxury

Before mentioning the most obvious advantages of booking private charter flights, it is worth dispelling the myth that doing so is beyond the means of the average sports enthusiast. Actually, booking for larger groups is the most cost-effective way to fly privately and, as it will be explained below, charter flights are not only more comfortable, more flexible, more convenient and hassle-free, but they can also be the best value for money.

Thus, if a professional club, a sports federation or a fan association organises charter flights for fans and supporters, it can actually save them money.

Of course, it is not just the guarantee of price stability that makes private charter aviation a more attractive option for fans and supporters than commercial flights. There are also many other reasons why charter flights make the loyal supporters of all the different football teams, or even the footballers themselves, feel special...

  • Privacy: Private terminals help you avoid security queues and relax in private lounges.
  • Travel time: Flying with a private charter is always a more flexible alternative to commercial aviation, as the private client can better choose the destination airports and better control the schedule, thus avoiding the need for extra trips, stopovers or extra transport from one city to another in other countries. 
  • Less restrictive baggage: Travelling with flags of your country, drums or horns to cheer your national team can be a problem or an extra cost on a traditional commercial aircraft. On a private plane, hand luggage flexibility is much greater and less restrictive. 
  • Convenience: Whether you are professionals competing for the trophy, a company with guests on board, or simply a group of fans or supporters ready to do your best for your country, comfort on the journey will be paramount to arriving rested and fully committed to Qatar. In every case, travellers need ample space on long-haul flights to stretch out and relax as much as possible before the competition. They can use the hours of flight time to meditate or rest and feel ready for the match or simply start the entertainment before arriving at their destination.
