Air charter broker Air Partner has signed a contract with Hotelplan Group to provide ski flights this winter.

The company will operate weekly Boeing 737 charters from Gatwick and Bristol to Chambery for the Inghams Ski, Esprit and Ski Total brands.

Flights will run between mid-December and mid-April.

Inghams executive director Hugh Walton said: “We take great care in selecting our airline partners and we are delighted to be working with Air Partner this winter.

“Inghams alone operates to 91 resorts in eight countries and we need partners in whom we can have absolute confidence to deliver the reliability and service our guests have come to expect.”

Air Partner inclusive tour programmes director Alan Murray said: “We are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to work with these well-established and market-leading ski brands to provide a trusted and reliable service.

“The inclusive tour operator sector is a particular area of focus for Air Partner and we are delighted to be able to build on the good work we have already done this year, establishing ourselves as the ‘go-to’ charter provider in this important sector.”
