Corporate travel company goes up a gear with local partnership

Executive travel company, Flightlink, has celebrated their ongoing partnership with Mercedes-Benz of Swindon with the handover of three new Mercedes E class vehicles.

Flightlink’s focus on providing a high quality, reliable and professional service means that the company is regularly purchasing new vehicles, with the latest three cars representing well over £100,000 of investment.

Since 2012, Flightlink has officially partnered with Mercedes-Benz to provide their new vehicles and service their fleet.  Flightlink has a long-standing reputation of providing excellent corporate travel over their 21 years in business and due to regularly winning substantial new contracts, the company buys brand new vehicles at least once a month.

With their fleet of cars covering over 1.7million miles a year, buying the most-reliable vehicles and having confidence in the service team looking after them were key considerations for the Flightlink team.  Due to the mileage covered, Flightlink’s vehicles are all serviced every six to eight weeks to ensure they’re in tip top condition.

Mike McCartney, managing director of Flightlink, said: “Mercedes-Benz of Swindon provides us with excellent support and its service team has come to understand our business needs very well.  As a company that works across the region, we could have chosen any of the area’s dealerships but selected Swindon as we are committed to buying as locally as possible.

“Right now we probably have the youngest corporate travel fleet in the South West, and definitely the largest fleet in the area, with our cars being equally distributed across a range from brand new to 3 years old. This, together with our rigorous safety checks and strict servicing regime, means that our customers can always be confident in the reliability of our vehicles and they know that we will get them where they need to go on time.”

Mike Fellows, managing director at Mercedes-Benz Swindon, said: “We have an outstanding relationship with Flightlink, who provide first class service to their customers.  Our aim is to mirror that with our strong partnership and service support to their large fleet of Mercedes-Benz cars.  Their focus on regularly purchasing new vehicles with the latest technology and environmental benefits shows that Flightlink are at the forefront of executive travel.”
