● Passengers will be offered complimentary transfers in the latest luxury limousines – including a range of premium electric vehicles - from leading global chauffeur service Blacklane.

● Global Airlines expects its first fully acquired aircraft, 9H-GLOBL, to fly to its next destination to start its refurbishment programme in the coming weeks.

London, April 9th 2024

Today a partnership has been announced between Global Airlines and Blacklane, the premiere global chauffeur service provider. As Global Airline plans for its first phase of commercial operations, the partnership with Blacklane will initially entitle all First and Business passengers to to-and-from airport transfers. Additionally, all Global Traveller passengers will be offered exclusive perks such as discounts and special offers to use the Blacklane service. Blacklane is operational in over 50 countries and provides guests with a luxurious, reliable and stress-free way to travel on their own schedule while enjoying the peace-of-mind of an uninterrupted door-to-door experience. In addition, Blacklane’s limousines offer comfort and privacy which enables guests to either fully relax or continue with their work. The company was the first in their industry to fully carbon offset their operations and have ambitious targets to make 50% of their fleet EV by 2025.

Speaking about the partnership, James Asquith, the CEO and Founder of Global Airlines said:Working with companies who want to deliver the very best service to passengers is central to our values, and in Blacklane we have a partner who will do exactly that. Blacklane will offer the perfect stress-free start to a journey with Global and I am hopeful that to-and-from airport transfers, along with some other exciting announcements we have coming up, will persuade even more passengers to fly with Global Airlines.

Dr. Sascha Meskendahl, CRO (Chief Revenue Officer) of Blacklane, added:Blacklane is a trusted brand all over the world, and we pride ourselves on offering peace of mind and a premium service for our guests. This partnership is a logical next step for our business as an increasing number of travelers are using our limousines to and from the airport, especially as the business travel market booms. We can’t wait to offer our smart, easy, and reliable chauffeur service to First and Business passengers flying Global.

Global Airlines is currently working with Airbus to confirm the arrangements and approvals to fly its first fully acquired aircraft to a European facility in the coming weeks. It will then undergo further refurbishment and continue its overhaul work before entering service in the coming months.
