THE travel disruption caused by Iceland's volcanic ash has not been bad news for all businesses - including one St Ives-based chauffer company.
Flex-Able Group has been called upon to transfer customers to Brussels, Frankfurt and Zurich at short notice as a result of the disruption to air travel across Europe.
Richard Vanbergen, managing director of Flex-Able Group, said: "For some of our customers not travelling just wasn't an option - it was imperative that they were able to travel to the continent, whether it be to fulfil contractual obligations or secure new business."
By Monday, Flex-Able had already transferred 40 passengers in 11 journeys, with up to seven passengers from different companies sharing the journey to reduce costs.
"As always we have reacted to our clients' needs and have been able to offer customers a guaranteed method of transport that they can be confident will see them make it to their most vital business engagements," said Mr Vanbergen.
He added that the company had been receiving enquiries from major blue-chip companies in the wake of the disruption.
