Kevelair, the specialist in tailor-made air charter, wishes you all the best for this new year.
2019 was a complicated year for air transport and tourism, especially in Europe. The fall of several airlines such as Aigle Azur or Xl Airways has complicated the charter market. In addition, the disappearance of the giant Thomas Cook has left thousands of passengers helpless.
Thomas Cook disappeared with his airlines, only Condor in Germany and Thomas Cook Airlines in Scandinavia remain. A good thing that these two companies remain in the European and extra European skies. It should also be noted that many other European “small companies” have also stopped their operations.
The fall of this black September for air transport and tourism has left many traces in the sector; stranded passengers, lost tickets and many agency bankruptcies.
2020 is therefore a year of transition and reconquest of the tourism sector. Indeed, economic models are changing, as are travel habits.
Kevelair, for its part, is entering its twelfth year of operation by offering tailor-made air services. The rental of jets or charter flights on demand are the main directions for this new year. However, the disappearance of many companies has complicated the job of air charterer. Indeed, the number of available aircraft decreasing, prices increase over certain pivotal periods in the charter flight.
To conclude, our company based in Nantes and on the American continent, continues to produce each year hundreds of charter flights, flight series or private aircraft in business aviation with the same philosophy of service and safety above all. .

Realization of a charter flight
When you confirm a flight with your air broker, you wonder what the next steps are. Here they are by chronology:
The confirmation of the charter:
Your broker asks you for a written confirmation of your next charter flight in order to have a frame of your file. This must include, in addition to the price, the times requested and the number of passengers and details that best prepare the flight.
From this moment, the broker communicates with the company designated to operate the flight by sending in turn, all the hourly elements and details provided by the customer.
Generally, this confirmation is sent to the commercial department of the airline.
Therefore, the different services are contacted by the sales department and it is called “flight launch”. Generally, a card is established to give the elements in all the services concerned. The plane schedule then returns the flight on a device.
Then, the crew planning service gradually affects the sailors on this mission.
Then come the catering services for meals on board and stopovers.
Finally, flight operations are informed because they are the ones who manage the flight on the day. The operation then handles airport authorization requests, take-off and landing slots as well as fueling elements.
The week of the flight:
In the week of the flight, the different services are coordinated in order to adjust the last details, add elements to allow optimal exploitation. Often, stops are contacted to know if on their side, everything is ready to receive the flight. Flight placement, the “ferry” as the aerial language names them, are checked.
The day before the flight:
The charter company checks the day before or 72 hours before the day that all the components of this chartered flight are in place. A weather point is made, especially over the winter period. Indeed, fog, low ceiling or snow or ice disturbances are always possible.
D-Day Air Charter:
The broker communicates with the stopovers to know if everything is going well at the level of the recording but also with the operations to know the last information on the flight.
The relay is then carried out with the client who is constantly informed of the status of his charter flight

To charter an airliner to or from Paris airports, you have several solutions :
Chartering a plane from Paris Charles de Gaulle airport is the easiest way for charter flights because the authorities grant the necessary authorizations on charter flights without any problem. Often located in Terminal 3 of the airport, it is the most used formula when our group makes leave a charter flight.
From time to time, other terminals are used for the rental of aircraft but most often, the hall 3 on Paris is granted.
Paris Orly airport is more restrictive in terms of obtaining traffic because companies have to be based or fly from this airport to operate charter flights. The airport is mainly used for scheduled flights, medium or long haul but some airlines offer charter flights.
Finally, Paris Le Bourget airport can authorize charter flights, often sports trips but limited to 25 passengers. Le Bourget is much more often used in renting private jets. Whether for taxis or long-distance jets, this airport is the most suitable for this type of traffic. Plane rental from Le Bourget is simple and many support companies also offer car parks for customers.
In terms of plane leasing, Paris airports have good aircraft capabilities ranging from business jets based mostly on Le Bourget airport to airliners on Orly or Roissy CDG.
However, it is advisable to know beforehand the fillings desired for your charter flights in order to calibrate to the best the devices in hiring. Charter activity departing from Paris airports is consistent with business aviation flights, punctual charter flights for MICE and flight series.

There are several methods to charter a plane as there are a large number of planes to charter. Below, here are the main lines of the air charter:
The principle of chartering an airplane:
Chartering an airplane is like renting a plane for private or business reasons to move from point A to point B. The principle is different from a regular flight because the aircraft “belongs to you” during the flight it becomes a private charter flight. By charting a flight, you create a special flight for your needs.
When to charter an airplane:
Air chartering becomes essential if the regular lines do not match your expectations in terms of schedules, connections and often costs if you are a company and you carry many of your employees. Indeed, a regular company will only take part of your workforce with fixed schedules and established programs.
If you can not find the destination, the schedules and the number of seats required, chartering an airplane becomes the right solution to organize your event, your company shuttle or others.
The possibilities in chartering a device:
Many possibilities are then offered to you but the most important thing is that you decide the dates, the destination and the schedules that you wish. Of course, many parameters are taken into account, but generally, charter flights correspond to the needs of customers.
In addition, you can then find with your air charter, many ancillary services that will make your charter flight a real experience!
The choice of services on board, the ability to customize the interior of the aircraft with headrest or welcome kits, recording screens, are the services you will be offered for your flights.
Choose your plane charter:
At first, you need to know the number of participants in your event so that we can determine together the correct choice of the device to set up. Depending on your needs, we will direct you to a type of aircraft more suited to your flight.
Aircraft Chartering and Security:
For a long time, the “charter flight” had a pejorative connotation, thinking that because it was a charter, the security conditions were not the same. Wrong because commercial aviation in the 2000s means that regular or non-scheduled airlines (charter airlines) are subject to the same aviation safety, training and maintenance rules.
In many cases, the civil aviation authorities look a little more closely at the approval levels of the charter companies since the charter word is opposed in principle to the regular word.
Conditions to charter an airplane:
Apart from private jet flying available to all, aircraft charters are often used by the following types of customers:
o Travel agencies or tour operators
o Communication or event agency
o Manufacturer companies of cars, boats or motorcycles for product launches
o Agencies specialized in MICE (Meeting, Incentive, congress and events)
o Small, medium and large businesses
o sports clubs
o And all other types of customers who are looking for a private flight.

Kevelair Goup participates in WYD around the world chartering planes for pilgrims. Very well established in the charter flights of religious tourism, the group is still on this very present edition.
The company, which specializes in the air charter of all types of aircraft, has since its establishment been very active in the transport of pilgrims to the main places of worship in Europe. Indeed, Lourdes, the first destination operated by the charterer, is a destination operated from many European airports and even extra European (African). Then come the pilgrimages to Rome for the visit of the Vatican, Fatima to Portugal. Many flights are also operated for South American agencies from Europe to the Holy Land (Tel Aviv).
Present since the Jmj of Madrid in 2011, Kevelair has been able to offer air solutions on the following with Rio and Krakow. Today in Panama with Kevelair America, the air broker is present on this event.
The year 2019 is therefore starting to grow strongly for the company, which is celebrating its 10 years of operation this year with several thousand hours of flight and passengers transported. The company operated numerous ACMI contracts for European and non-European companies, and offered its expertise in airport development by working as GSA for charter companies.
Coverage of the Arab Spring, special emergency evacuation flights or relief for oil personnel have been a big part of its charter business, while keeping a strong presence of chartered flights on pilgrimages. Since then, the company has focused on sports events, the Mice and incentive market.
Le moment est venu de vous souhaiter un Joyeux Noël et une merveilleuse nouvelle année 2019 de la part de toute l’équipe de Kevelair et Kevelair America . Nous vous souhaitons le meilleur pour cette fin d’année et tous nos voeux pour l’année prochaine .
L’ année 2018 se termine bientôt et Kevelair Group volera en séries depuis l’Italie jusqu’à la fin de cette année et le début de la prochaine sur des appareils de 180 sièges . Cette année fut très productive en terme d’affrètements aériens parce que notre compagnie a opéré de nombreux vols depuis le marché scandinave et italien .
Présent sur les grands évènements sportifs comme la Coupe du Monde ou la Champion ‘s League , les affrètements d’avions moyen courrier ont fourni la majeure partie de notre activité . L’organisation de ce type de vols , les droits de trafic pour certaines routes et la complexité des services à bord ont monopolisé nos services opérations sur une grande partie du premier trimestre.
En outre , la gestion de certaines opérations incentive en long courier sur le mois de février a permis à Kevelair d’intensifier sa marque sur le segment de l’organisation de vols charters dédiés aux conventions . Des appareils de plus de 250 sièges o,nt été affrété pour l’occasion et il a fallut mettre une logistique impressionnante pour la gestion des invités . Lancement de voiture avec un appareil affrété pendant plus de 3 semaines en mars , vols charters séries en mai pour un tour opérateur en plus des vols ponctuels ont permis à la société nantais qui fête ses 10 ans de s’imposer dans le domaine du transport aérien à la demande .
Depuis 10 ans , nous avons couvert une grande partie du globe avec des vols affrétés et ce , dans tous les domaines d’activité . Du business jet pour le congrès CES de Las Vegas au cargo urgent sur l’Asie , les évacuations après les tremblements de terre d’ Haiti ou d’ Indonésie , les vols charters cumulés représentent un volume d ‘heures conséquentes dans l’aviation commerciale .
La location d’avion de compagnie à compagnie ( ACMI) fait aussi partie intégrante de nos activités depuis le lancement avec une longue expérience des appareils proposés . Nous avons fourni des appareils type Boeing 737 en Grèce , voler en Beech 1900 en Afrique de l’Ouest et opérer pendant 6 mois un Atr42 dans le sud de l’Italie . Les formules proposées en wet lease ou damp lease séduisent les opérateurs .
Cependant , l’année écoulée a aussi vu disparaître un grand nombre de compagnies aériennes et cela est d’abord préjudiciable pour les employés qui se retrouvent sans travail mais aussi pour le marché car les disponibilités sur l’année 2019 en charter sont déjà peu nombreuses . Small Planet , Primera Air mais aussi Cello Aviation et bien d’autres , occupaient un segment charter important sur l’Europe .
Pour conclure , nous espérons que la nouvelle année verra aussi la création de nouveaux pavillons car il existe un gros potentiel sur le marché de l’affrètement aérien en Europe et ailleurs pour de nouveaux acteurs du transport aérien . Kevelair Group pour sa part, sera très présent une nouvelle fois sur le marché du pèlerinage avec des vols charters sur Lourdes , Rome et d’autres destinations .
La société nantaise, très présente sur les JMJ à chaque rencontre et qui opère chaque année des affrètements aériens sur les grands lieux comme Lourdes, Rome ou la Terre Sainte , propose avec ses partenaires Kevelair America et Orbis Panama , des solutions aériennes mais aussi des transports sol et de l’hôtellerie .
Depuis plus de 10 ans , Kevelair opère des vols charters chaque année sur tous les évènements marquants et les JMJ sont un évènement auquel le groupe répond présent à chaque fois . Brésil , Espagne et Pologne , les affrètements d’avions de 100 à 190 sièges furent conséquents . En outre , Kevelair transporte chaque année des passagers sur tous les lieux référencés incluant Fatima au Portugal ou Medjugorge .
Sur le Panama , Kevelair America sera présent avec des affrètements sur le continent américain et Orbis Panama , l’agence de voyages , propose pour sa part , des services de transferts en bus, limousines et bien entendu toutes les prestations hôtelières sur Panama city .
