Private jet and helicopter charter company FlyMeNow is getting ready for a jam-packed July after experiencing a surge of bookings during Yorkshire’s Grand Depart of the Tour De France.
The Yorkshire based charter company has seen a 150 per cent uplift in bookings, with FlyMeNow promising to bring fans right into the heart of the action of the world’s greatest cycling race.
On July 5, the Tour De France will set off on its first leg going from the centre of Leeds, through the Yorkshire Dales and finishing with a sprint into Harrogate. Followed by a visit to the city of York on July 6 for the second stage of the race.
Yorkshire’s iconic scenery on days one and two of the race provide the perfect opportunity for fans on private charters to not only see the race from a whole new perspective, but passengers will get the chance to visit some of the most beautiful venues across the region.
Andrew Whitney, commercial director at FlyMeNow, said:
