Burnley-based business travel specialist, Mint, is celebrating pulling off a big job arranging journalists’ travel packages from around the world to a major business conference held in Vienna.
The challenging task of arranging travel for 27 journalists from South Korea, New Zealand, South Africa, Germany, Spain, Holland, Denmark, France and the UK was commissioned by international PR agency, The PR Network.
Mint was contacted by The PR Network to provide a quote for flying the journalists in to Vienna to arrive at specific times on the same day so that transfers by bus could be made to take them to the conference venue. On the return flights, each delegate had their own itineraries to accommodate, with some staying longer or requiring different departure airports within Europe.
Steve Hall, Managing Director at Mint Business Travel, said: “Fulfilling the task was immensely challenging but enjoyable. Dealing with last minute changes and individual travel itineraries is all in a day’s work for Mint. The job also required contingency planning in the event of bad weather. Fortunately, the weather was kind and all flights were on time.”
Eileen Boydell, Client Services Director at The PR Network said; “It was important for us to find a travel partner who we could trust to provide a quick turnaround on flights and travel schedules even at the last minute. Mint Business Travel was the obvious choice as they were nimble and flexible enough to cater to our changing needs with the level of professionalism you would expect.”
