Orchestra, France to Switzerland
In October 2019, ACS was asked by a European orchestra’s tour manager to urgently transport 60 musicians and several heavy instruments from France to Switzerland, where they were due to perform in Andermatt.
Route: Bordeaux > Zurich
Aircraft: Fokker 100
After receiving the request less than two days before the group were due to perform, we sprung into action to come up with an alternative solution as quickly as possible. Our team quickly sourced a Fokker 100, which was the most competitively priced option for a group of this size. It also had enough space for the orchestra’s five cellos to travel safely in the cabin, rather than the hold – each cello was secured into a window seat next to its owner using a seat belt extender.
THE FINER DETAILS
Rapid Response: Our expert team worked tirelessly to organise this urgent charter and the flight was completed within three days, allowing the orchestra to perform as planned.
