In a bid to beat the weather and keep the festive spirit alive European Seaplanes has a special offer on 'experience of a lifetime' gift vouchers guaranteed to land under the tree in time for Christmas.
While more snow and ice threatens to disrupt deliveries and leave millions of online shoppers, who have paid and ordered goods via the web, at risk of not getting their gifts in time for Christmas the UK's only commercial seaplane service has come up with a solution.
“Normally we would send out gift vouchers by post but with the disruption to deliveries this winter we have started emailing them so people can print them out and still have a surprise under the tree this Christmas,” said David West of European Seaplanes.
European Seaplanes, which operates in Scotland as Loch Lomond Seaplanes and has plans to start scenic services over south wales and the west of England from Cardiff Bay in the New Year, is offering a unique opportunity to experience the spectacular luxury of a seaplane flight for just £99.
Following widespread disruption to rail and road services across the UK during the recent bad weather, and with more snow and freezing temperatures forecast, many online and high street stores have stopped guaranteeing delivery by Christmas. As a result, an estimated 30 per cent per cent of men and up to 20 per cent of women who usually leave gift shopping to the last minute have been left panicking.
“We’ve had a lot of people booking on-line or over the telephone this year asking for tickets to be emailed to them so they can be sure of having a present to give their loved ones on Christmas morning,” said David.
”A lot of people are making bookings for flights in Scotland and for our new services from Cardiff in the New Year. We can e-mail confirmation of a booking within minutes so that people can present a gift token on Christmas Day. Any of our scenic flight tickets are valid for 12 months so can be used at any time in the year.”
Since taking-off for the first time seven years ago the company has become one of the most iconic images in the UK and was voted the most perfect day out in in a tourism survey.
