Parkers Executive Chauffeurs sees demand 'take off' thanks to links with the North East’s largest private jet facility
Established since 1997, Parkers Executive Chauffeurs is a North East based family business providing bespoke, luxury chauffeur services for clients across the whole of the UK.
Employing over 40 staff, the company has seen significant growth in the last 6 months thanks to an exclusive partnership with Samson Executive Jet Centre, the region’s largest Private Jet Facility located at Newcastle International Airport.
As a result of the growth, the business has now opened a second office, located on the Airport site, in order to support the uplift in passengers they are receiving from the private facility.
Laurence Beck, Managing Director of Parkers Executive Chauffeurs said, “we have a fantastic relationship with the Samson team at the Airport and have seen tremendous growth in the private jet sector of our business, therefore it made sense to set up an office closer to the private terminal here at Newcastle International.
“Our commitment to sustainability is embodied right through our business, we own the largest fleet of luxury vehicles in the North of England and we have made huge investments into purchasing hybrid and electric luxury vehicle options to help our clients offset some of their own carbon footprint by using our services.”
Paula Ives, General Manager at Samson Executive Jet Centre said, “following the re-opening of international travel we have seen a significant increase in passengers travelling through our facility.”
“We have been working with Parkers Executive Chauffeurs for many years but took the decision this year to make them the company of choice for our clients. They provide an excellent service and we are delighted to welcome them onto the Airport site in their new facility.”
As a business, Parkers has strong sustainability initiatives which align to those of Samson and the Airport. The company has planted over 3,300 trees to offset their journeys, plus the company has recently made huge investments into offering a greener fleet of luxury vehicles with hybrid Range Rovers and fully electric Mercedes Benz options.
Newcastle International Airport has an ambitious strategy to become a Net Zero Carbon Airport by the year 2035, several years ahead of many other European airports.
The roadmap to achieving this goal includes developing a Solar Farm on Airport land with the aim to producing all of the Airport’s energy by renewable means, planting additional woodland to harvest carbon from the atmosphere and replacing the Airport’s fleet of vehicles with electric models.
