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.
