A partnership agreement has been entered into between Brussels Airlines and that of Infinity Shuttle Service, a one hundred percent Liberian owned transportation company. The agreement was signed between the two companies at the Brussels Airlines Boulevard Palace Hotel office.
Under the agreement, Infinity Shuttle Service will offer passengers using the city check-in a special, low-cost fare to and from the airport. The partnership according to the two entities is expected to have some environmental impact by reducing traffic and carbon emissions when the number of vehicles plying the route to the Roberts International Airport (RIA) daily is significantly reduced.
Also under this partnership agreement, the special airport shuttle rate for Brussels Airlines city check-in passengers is US$50 dollars round trip, or US$30 dollars one-way to get to the airport. The special rate goes into effect as of January 1, 2019 and is for city check-in passengers only.
Remarking during the MOU, Brussels Airlines Country Manager, William Racinne noted, “a lot of passengers are still discovering our city check-in service. It is a unique service in Africa to help people to commute stress free to the airport without the weight of their heavy luggage.
This service has been designed especially for the countries where the airport is more than thirty (30) miles away from the capital.
Racinne further added “today, we are happy to partner with Infinity Shuttle Service-a dedicated team who offers a reliable shared-commuting bus ride to the airport. We believe that our new office located in Boulevard Palace Hotel on Tubman Boulevard will bring more passengers to use our city-check in and also, will excite them to share their journey to the airport.”
Accordingly, the owner of Infinity Shuttle Service, Patricia Adadevoh applauds Brussels Airlines management team for proposing the partnership.
She said, “None of us likes sitting in heavy traffic. The fewer cars we have on our roads, the lighter the traffic will be. If twenty passengers traveling on the same Brussels Airlines flight heading to the same destination which is RIA, the it makes sense to have one shuttle bus to take them there, instead of putting twenty cars on the road.
She emphasized “we all complain about traffic; this is an opportunity to start doing something about it. Now Brussels Airlines office is located just one block from our office in Sinkor, it will be easy for passengers to get to the airport after using the city check-in.
Since launching the airport shuttle service in April of this year, infinity shuttle service had proven beyond measure its ability to provide quality, on-time service to passengers.
