Efficient Executive Transportation for New York Airport Travel
Airport travel can either be the most relaxing aspect of business travel or the most stressful. Sometimes, while on the plane, the traveling executive can take a moment to relax, unwind and decompress. Other times the business traveler cannot stop thinking about that which has compelled him to travel, his business. Now in the case of the later that individual has no need, nor does he have the time, to waste his mental energies worrying about his ground and air travel accommodations. In all reality no one should have to stress or worry about pre-arranged logistics support, you are paying to be transported in an expected fashion and your expectations should, by all means, be met.
Unfortunately for many that is just not the case. A high traffic airport or an area plagued by constant delays caused by a multitude of problems (such as New York’s LaGuardia Airport, or John F Kennedy International Airport, or Newark International Airport) will almost always have issues. They will certainly be filled to capacity, their planes, their hangars, they’re parking areas, and their pick up and drop off areas will absolutely be crowded. This all equates to confusion, stress, time lost, and unhappy customers. For transportation companies, both air and ground, it means losing money. All of that is unacceptable and, fortunately, can be avoided.
Now I have your attention. The truth is proper communication and coordination between ground and air companies as well as lodging facilities can eliminate about 80% of the problem. It all starts and ends with the executive car service or limousine company contracted to provide that ground transportation. That company, above all else, needs to be punctual; they need to have new, clean vehicles, the chauffer needs to know where he is going and how his passenger needs to be accommodated. This should happen regardless of the car service contracted (although that is all too often not the case).
What most companies do not realize and where the real efficiency comes in is when the lines of communication are clear and open. When the executive car service is constantly in contact with the airline and they know that particular airlines procedures rules and needs. Do they want us to pull out on to the tarmac? What is their cancelation policy? Do they need last minute or same day reservations? What is their security protocol? All these are good questions and the company providing the ground transportation should be intimately familiar with the right answers.
That is the only way to mitigate the potential problems faced by frequent flyers and business travelers. Communicate, show understanding and build a relationship, most importantly be able to follow thru with your promises, if a private airline asks you to be on the tarmac in 15 minuets to pick up a VIP, and you say you will be there, you better be there. That is how proper business is conducted and how transportation in a high traffic area, like NYC or Long Island, can be simplified and handled properly.
