Birmingham Airport has announced a 12 month partnership with international visa specialist, The Travel Visa Company as it becomes the preferred supplier of business and tourist visas for its travellers.
As the seventh busiest airport in the UK, offering domestic and international flights across Europe, the Middle East, Pakistan, India and America, the new 12 month partnership with Birmingham Airport will ensure tourists and business travellers have access to the correct documentation needed when visiting countries that require visas.
Having more than 14 years experience and longstanding relationships with Embassies, High Commissions and Consulates in London, Birmingham and Manchester, the company will offer a bespoke service for travellers flying from Birmingham Airport.
The Travel Visa Company’s expert team will provide a service for both corporate and commercial travellers, that includes personally collecting visas directly from embassies and delivering them to customers.
The Travel Visa Company will feature on the Birmingham Airport website alongside need-to-know visa information and details on how to apply for country specific visas directly with the specialist.
Richard Gill, Head of Commercial at Birmingham Airport, comments: “Birmingham Airport’s range of long-haul destinations has been steadily growing over the years and will be in the position to offer even more choice from this spring with the opening of our runway extension, which will allow aircraft to fly direct to global destinations across the Americas, Africa and Asia.
“We aim to provide a world class service to our customers and by working with The Travel Visa Company we can offer a specialist visa service for those that require it to make life easier when flying from Birmingham Airport.”
Philip Ashwell, head of sales at The Travel Visa Company, says: “We are delighted to have begun working with Birmingham Airport and hope the new partnership will ensure the airport’s travellers are well informed about the complex nature of visas.”
“Applying for visas can be time consuming and complicated. Our job is to do all the hard work for customers and by offering our services to those travelling from Birmingham Airport we can help eliminate the stresses that the lengthy application process entails.
With important changes to Turkish visas coming into play in April, the new partnership will also assist holidaymakers visiting Turkey with the need to purchase the required visa prior to travelling.
“Countries have ever changing visa requirements, so it is vital that travellers are kept up-to-date with the alterations. By working with Birmingham Airport, we can ensure the public have all the correct documentation prepared before visiting their destination.”
As the favoured supplier to the UK’s leading travel providers, specialising in both tourist and business visas, The Travel Visa Company, founded by Karen Taylor and Ray Ward in 2005, currently employs 15 staff at its head office in Crewe and corporate visa division in Manchester city centre.
