BTN Europe presents an overview of business travel and MICE predictions for this year
UK ground transport and accommodation provider CMAC Group has announced the acquisition of Spanish firm Aircinks Solutions.
In business for ten years, Aircinks supports airlines across Spain, Portugal and Morocco during flight disruption, providing ground transportation and accommodation services for affected passengers.
Following the launch of operations in Greece in 2018, the acquisition allows CMAC to expand into Spain, which the company says ‘bucks the trend’ of Brexit uncertainty.
With the addition of Aircinks, the group now serves more than 130 airports worldwide.
The Aircinks operation will continue to be overseen by Jordi Llopis and Israel Moreno, who will move across to the group, bringing with them their experience in dealing with flight disruption across the region.
Llopis commented: “As part of the CMAC Group, we are looking forward to the opportunities to expand the Aircinks network in Europe. CMAC provides new platforms and technologies, which will enable us to deliver our services more efficiently and effectively to our customers.”
Peter Slater, COO of CMAC Group, added: “The acquisition of Aircinks has given us a great platform to build our services across Spain and Portugal and, along with our Greece operation, is a significant step in the development of CMAC as a major player in airline disruption across Europe. Many businesses may be cautious about expanding in Europe, but we feel this is absolutely the right time to be investing in the continent and providing our services to new and existing customers.”
The deal follows CMAC Group’s acquisition of Cabline in May and Cabfind in July 2018.
