DRIVERS, TEAMS AND MEDIA FROM ONE RACE TO ANOTHER IN ONE DAY
CHARTERS IN 10 HOURS
HOURS TO REPURPOSE A DISUSED MILITARY AIRPORT
While disruption for many travellers is an unwanted inconvenience, for those we work with it can be disastrous and costly. Due to the pandemic, cancellations, changes and delays were unprecedented, and travel restrictions varied regionally and globally. New ways of working and an innovative, agile approach to travel management were needed to navigate these challenges.
Twenty-two Grands Prix were originally scheduled for the Formula 1 2020 World Championship. However, the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in numerous race cancellations and postponements. A rescheduled calendar consisted of seventeen Grands Prix, with the last two races taking place in Bahrain and Abu Dhabi.
The Travel Places team were tasked with getting 1294 drivers, teams and media from one race to another in just one day. A challenge all the more complex due to the strict ‘biosphere’ lockdown in operation in Abu Dhabi.
As a result of the work from the Travel Places team on the ground in both Bahrain and Abu Dhabi, all 1294 Formula 1 personnel arrived In Abu Dhabi ready to perform ahead of the season finale. The key to long-term success is how we deliver in a crisis, and we’re hugely proud to have delivered first class performances for our clients on this occasion and throughout the global pandemic.
