As athletic competitions and professional sports leagues begin to resume in Europe, private jet charter operator KlasJet has seen an uptick in usage and, as a result, is focusing on perfecting the travel experience for teams. KlasJet is aware “that a professional athlete’s nutrition must strictly align with a designated regimen at all times," the company said, and to that end, it has introduced specialized flight menus catering specifically to the needs of sports teams, developed in coordination with each team’s own sports medicine doctors along with its Italian sports charter specialist partner That Aviation.
“BC Žalgiris has already taken this opportunity,” said Paulius Motiejunas, team director of the Lithuanian basketball club. “We have incorporated the unique menus into the team’s routine and can safely say that we are fully satisfied with the outcome.”
KlasJet also assures its athlete clientele fast and convenient check-in and security procedures, and kits of personal protection equipment are supplied onboard the aircraft. “We are always eager to identify the requirements of our customers and find methods to exceed their expectations,” noted Rita Domkute, CEO of Lithuania-based KlasJet, which operates several Boeing 737s. “As a company, we are rather privileged to have such a strong partnership with competitive and highly experienced professionals, as well as all the resources necessary to support the demanding lifestyle of athletes.”
