From international and club football to handball, cricket and basketball teams, Chapman Freeborn’s charter specialists based in offices across the globe can arrange an aircraft suitable for your team’s travel, whatever the sport.

We have decades of expertise in coordinating bespoke itineraries for away matches, major tournaments and pre-season tours. We’re not just experts in aviation, but also in the individual requirements of sports teams.

Chapman Freeborn has a proven track record in going above and beyond to ensure that our clients’ needs are met from the moment they enquire about the flight, throughout all the planning stages through to the execution of the flight.

Catering, equipment and branding

Enhance your charter experience

The experts at Chapman Freeborn have an in-depth understanding of the importance of nutrition for sports professionals. We will secure a catering solution perfectly aligned to the nutritional requirements of your individual team members.

We will also work with your team’s chefs to understand menus and guarantee the timing of meals, liaising with any associated catering companies where necessary to ensure the most nutritious meals for our passengers. Different sports require different equipment which means luggage requirements vary hugely team to team. Chapman Freeborn will secure the correct aircraft to suit your team’s specific equipment and luggage needs. Where possible we will also arrange for luggage to be screened prior to your team’s arrival to the aircraft, speeding up the process and enabling the passengers to turn up shortly before their departure rather than hours beforehand.

Chapman Freeborn works with a range of suppliers to ensure the best amenities are provided on board every flight. These can include:

• Team-branded headrests

• Comfortable blankets

• Pillows

• Branded food items

• Branded welcome mats

• Amenities packs

We can work with you prior to the flight to source various items to personalise your journey, the only limit is your imagination!

A Chapman Freeborn Flight Representative can join you on-board during your flight allowing passengers to rest undisturbed, knowing that we are on hand to liaise with the crew on your behalf where required. 08

Leave behind the stress of crowded commercial airports. Simply arrive at the private terminal minutes before your departure and walk straight onto your aircraft.
