UK luxury ground transportation specialist First Class Cars
is to exhibit at next week’s Middle East Business Aviation Show and exhibition
CEO Graham Coate will use the opportunity to meet with the growing number of Middle East operators who regularly fly into the UK and Europe
to offer them a seamless, high quality VIP service on the ground. “We are exhibiting at MEBA because we are seriously looking at positioning
vehicles in Dubai – as well as to add to our client list of jet operators who regularly fly to the UK from the Gulf. We are keen to pursue three to
four day bookings, where we can provide a driver and luxury car to support a client for the duration of their stay and be at their full disposal
while in the UK on business,” Mr Coate said.
First Class Cars owns a 35-strong fleet of vehicles including the S-Class Mercedes saloon, Mercedes Viano, Chrysler Grand Voyager, Bentley
Continental Flying Spur, plus a brand new addition to the fleet, the Rolls-Royce Phantom. All vehicles in the First Class fleet are immaculate in
sleek black and beautifully appointed inside with sumptuous leather and wood finish.
The company marks its 10th birthday next year and
Mr Coate believes the success of its business, in the private aviation arena of late, is its ability
to be fully adaptable to the needs of business aviation. “Business jets and executive helicopters often have to divert from their chosen
destination because of poor weather, a client changing his mind about where he wants to go, meetings over-running, etc. Private aircraft
position where clients want them and we can be there to meet the aircraft with the shortest of
notice,” he said.
First Class Cars uses a state-of-the-art vehicle tracking system, which provides updates of vehicle positions every 60 seconds. Also, key to serving the
demanding business jet market, the company uses a sophisticated flight tracking system,
enabling it to monitor the precise arrival times of jets, saving clients and charter brokers waiting time and cost.
First Class Cars is headquartered at London Luton Airport, serving key fixed based operations (FBO) clients based at the airport. Six months
ago the company opened a new facility at London Stansted Airport, a decision taken in response to the airport’s growing popularity for
