Arrive on time & in style at The Open 2012

Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club (15th – 22nd July 2012)


With it now only a matter of days until The Open 2012, tension is mounting as to who will reign victorious and lift the greatest prize in Golf – the Claret Jug.

Chief Executive and pilot at Atlas Helicopters, the specialists in private helicopter hire outlines, “Those clients with ‘time at a premium’ regularly take helicopter flights to most of the major sporting events in the UK and near continent. That isn’t to say that it is a costly travel alternative for them however. There is often a misconception that helicopter hire is extremely expensive, but many are realising that this is not the case at all. Corporate clients, whether entertaining, or being entertained, on occasion have to be away from the office for as short a period as possible. Helicopter charter can cut their journey times by 75% when compared against conventional means of transport’.

It is not to say that it is only corporate clients whom travel by helicopter to such events. Capt. Burns added ‘Most of our clients travelling to major sporting events are actually not corporate clients. They are purely sports enthusiasts wishing to avoid the traffic chaos that such events create’. Our clients wish to enjoy every moment of their day and do not wish their day to be tempered by hours of queuing in traffic.


Running from Sunday 15th July – Sunday 22nd July 2012, The Open Championship is expected to attract some 200,000 people over the 8-day event with millions of people watching from home.

Atlas Helicopters will have a luxurious fleet four AS355 Twin Squirrel’s, one Agusta A109 Power and one Bell 206L LongRanger, on hand to take all those avid golfing fans to one of this year’s biggest events.

Flight times from London to Lytham & St Annes between 1 hour 20 minutes and 1 hour 40 minutes. Prices start from as little as £3700 + VAT for a day return based on four passengers.
