On his recent visit to Australia to attend both the Duke Of Edinburgh Awards and the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, also spent a lot of his time flying between venues with an exhaustive itinerary.
Due to the Earl’s tight schedule, he required a private charter service that was reliable, comfortable and had access to the required airports he was travelling to.
FlightCharter.com.au was engaged to provide transport solutions for the Prince’s travel arrangements from Ballarat, Victoria to Romsey, Victoria where he attended the Cope-Williams Winery as part of the Duke of Edinburgh Awards. The Prince travelled with the CEO of the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, Peter Kaye, and members of security.
The Duke of Edinburgh Awards was founded in the United Kingdom by Prince Edward’s father, Prince Philip, and is a youth awards program which is now held across 144 nations.
After the Prince’s engagement at Romsey, he then travelled on to Essendon to catch another flight to Hobart, Tasmania.
The EC135 Business Class Helicopter, capable of seating 5 passengers with 2 pilots or 6 passengers with 1 pilot, was the assigned aircraft for the journey. Through using a trusted provider such as FlightCharter.com.au, the Prince and his entourage were not limited by flight schedules and availability of those airlines in the public sector allowing him the convenience and flexibility to have an aircraft specifically designated to his schedule and personal requirements.
Security, safety and discretion were also an essential part of Prince Edwards travel with the utmost care taken throughout all aspects of the planning and implementing of his personal flight charter experience.
