Yellow Travel Welcomes Birmingham Airport & Jaguar Land Rover’s Business-As-Usual Attitude Following Brexit

Yellow Travel Welcomes Birmingham Airport & Jaguar Land Rover’s Business-As-Usual Attitude Following Brexit

Today, Yellow Travel, the best place in the West Midlands to book a Birmingham Airport taxi, has welcomed statements from our local big employers, Birmingham Airport and Jaguar Land Rover in the wake of the referendum in the summer.

“The outcome isn’t just about Britain leaving the E.U. but is now also about reforming our new Government,” according to an official statement from Birmingham Airport. “The E.U. referendum result doesn’t mean that we will immediately see a change to our lifestyles, the way that we travel or how our European nationals living and working in Britain will be affected. Nor will it mean that we will disconnect with our European partners overnight. It is far too early to speculate about any of these important issues – this is an unprecedented situation after all. But it’s important to keep clear and calm heads so that we can ensure that our regional priorities, such as HS2, keep moving forward to ensure the future of Midlands’ residents, workers and industry, is not compromised.”

With a base in Solihull, Jaguar Land Rover has responded by simply stating, “Today is just business as usual.” In a letter to staff, the company said it, “Remains committed,” to its manufacturing plants and consumer sites across the E.U. This was welcome news to our many loyal Birmingham Airport transfer customers.

Birmingham voted to leave the European Union by the closest of margins. There were just 3,800 votes in to at the end revealing that 50.4% of people in the country’s second largest city supported Brexit. The final overview saw that The Black Country and Birmingham voted to leave with a majority of 291,000 votes or 59.8% of the vote.

Yellow Travel Excited for Football Fans in the West Midlands as Messi, Suarez & Barcelona landat Birmingham Airport

Yellow Travel, the No.1 choice in the West Midlands region for professional Birmingham Airport transfers, is thrilled for football fans young and old after the 4-time FIFA Ballon D’Or winner Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and the rest of the Barcelona F.C. squad landed at our local international gateway.

It was a wonderful boost for our Birmingham Airport taxi passengers who have taken the time, effort and expense to see Barcelona play at home and witness that their football heroes landed right here on our own doorstep.

The world-class players landed in the West Midlands to make their way to a 6-day training camp before flying to play an important International Champions Cup game in Ireland. Local fans were thrilled to see the famous Barca team touch down before travelling to the F.A.’s National Football Centre in St. George’s Park for their special one-week training camp.

It is the second time in recent weeks that a football related story has made world headlines at our local hub. Former Wales striker, Dean Saunders, has been requested by Birmingham Airport to make a donation to charity after a parking gaff made the news.

Airport bosses forgave a massive parking bill while the BBC T.V. pundit was off working as park of UEFA Euro 2016 in France. He never expected Wales to stay so long in the tournament and left his car in the short stay car park. Fans have set up a crowdfunding page to help out Dean and the airport wants the money collected diverted to a charity.

Next time Dean, give Yellow Travel a call first for an effortless Birmingham Airport transfer.

Yellow Travels Joins Chorus of Praise for Birmingham Airport Employee Who Came to the Rescue of Family Forced from Flight Due to Son Recovering from Illness & Dad Undergoing Chemotherapy & Radiotherapy

Yellow Travels Joins Chorus of Praise for Birmingham Airport Employee Who Came to the Rescue of Family Forced from Flight Due to Son Recovering from Illness & Dad Undergoing Chemotherapy & Radiotherapy

A family from Coventry, the Doyle’s, have Birmingham Airport employee, Zita Small, to thank for saving their family summer holiday after they were all kicked off a flight to Portugal and left stranded because their 1-year-old son Jack was recovering from chicken pox despite having been given a medical all-clear from a family doctor.

“Heartbroken wasn’t the word,” expressed Jack’s mother Carrie Doyle. “We, of course, understood that the air hostess was just following the rules and we appreciated it was for the safety and care of other passengers. But we were just devastated – especially as we had already cancelled our first flight because of Jack’s chicken pox. When I had to tell my 5-year-old daughter Ruby to get off the plane she was so confused and upset to be told that we weren’t going on holiday again.”

At present, dad Paddy is undergoing intensive rounds of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. A family holiday is what their entire household was longing for. Zita, who had recently lost her husband, overheard the family’s dilemma and was quick to intervene to attempt to find a satisfactory solution. 10 minutes later she had booked new upgraded First-Class flights to Portugal for the whole family.

Zita then took it upon herself to drive the Doyle’s to a health clinic to get a newly signed fit to fly medical letter for check-in despite the fact that her shift had finished by then.

This story reminds us why we are committed to serving the people of the area with the best Birmingham Airport taxi services in the West Midlands.
