27 feb 2017

Many who travel for leisure often focus on the destination – finding the perfect location, booking the finest hotels and seeking out the best restaurants – and can miss out on a number of benefits if they choose to fly commercially.

But, as our clients can attest, the reasons extend far beyond simply fitting more hours into the day.
