Ibiza in style with Mr Sykes concierge and Air Partner private jets

Mr. Sykes Modern Concierge announces Ibiza Summer Pop-up and private jet service in association with leading private aviation specialist, Air Partner.

Shoreditch based concierge firm, Mr. Sykes, today announced the launch of #IBZ14 - a summer season pop-up in Ibiza. From the 1st August until the last sunset of September, Mr. Sykes offers its modern concierge service to those journeying to and from Ibiza.

The Ibiza island pop-up will connect sun seekers with exclusive insider knowledge of 'hidden' Ibiza and an array of elite service providers, who gather on the island each summer to serve the growing number of luxury travellers drawn to the island, famous as much for its bohemian lifestyle as its mega yachts and super clubs.

In association with leading private jet specialist, Air Partner, Mr. Sykes will publish Europe wide empty leg availability each week. Empty legs are the deeply discounted positioning flights created by one way charters, which means the cost per passenger is not much higher than the price of a business class flight.

Rob Sykes, Co-Founder of Mr. Sykes said, “As a DJ I played all over the world and know what it's like sitting around in airports waiting on flights. Our new jet service means those travelling across Europe frequently throughout the summer now have additional options. For those in Ibiza who can't bear to leave the island, last minute private jet availability offers greater flexibility for spontaneous changes to plans”.

“We chose Air Partner for our private jet provider due to their unparalleled global fleet access and as the most established aircraft charter broker in the private aviation business, their high standards around safety, security and service ensures peace of mind for our clients.”

Paul Richardson, Air Partner’s UK Director of Private Jets, commented. “This exclusive partnership really breaks the mould, Air Partner will not only meet the personal and business needs of its high net worth clients in providing speedy, hassle free travel to European hotspots but also ensure that the luxury flight itself is part of the experience with the clients that join us through Mr. Sykes”

The innovative empty leg jet service was featured in the Sunday Times Style magazine (27th July), highlighting the trend of highly successful families and individuals spending the summer outside of the UK, but with frequent short business trips back to London at a moments notice, with Ibiza, South of France, Italy and the Greek islands the most popular destinations for these extended 'away for August' breaks.
