Welcome to our first NEWSLETTER for 2018! We do hope that you had an enjoyable festive period and we wish you all the very best for a Happy and Prosperous NEW YEAR!
In this third quarter of 2017 we have seen many parts of the globe which have encountered unfortunate scenes of both hurricanes and earthquakes which have devastated local communities and caused major flight disruptions and cancellations.
Here is the current advice being given to anyone who intends to travel to/from these affected areas:
A deadly earthquake (19th SEPT 2017) with a magnitude 7.1 and a previous eruption (8th SEPT 2017) have caused major travel complications and MEXICO City airport was closed temporarily but has now re-opened.
The British Embassy in MEXICO City is closed until further notice and if anyone should require emergency assistance they should call:

MILLENNIUM TIP OF THIS QUARTER:
Having recently returned from DUBLIN with City Jet out of LONDON CITY AIRPORT, please do not be caught out be their monopoly on long term car parking, where currently they are charging an astronomical amount of £51.00 per day !!! to park your car. This was more than my return flight cost having booked well in advance of travel date.
SOLUTION: Simply go the nearby TRAVEL LODGE and use their privately run/owned car park where the cost is £45.00 for up to 3 days as opposed to £153.00 if you park directly in the long term parking @ LCY. You can then take a 10 minute leisurely walk to the TERMINAL/CHECK-IN AREA. Continue reading CORPORATE TRAVEL NEWSLETTER Q2 2017
