Airlines Crucial to Golf Tourist

There is nothing more frustrating to the travelling golfer than finding your golf umbrella is bent, or your favourite club has been broken in transit. Or worse, finding out that you have arrived at the airport but your clubs haven't and you're teeing off in one hour.

Maersk Air, Denmark's major private airline, is one carrier which pays special attention to the needs of the golf traveller. The airline has joined forces with the Danish Tourist Board and the Golf Travel Club to promote value for money packages for golf breaks in Denmark. Great care is taken to ensure the trips gets off to the right start - by getting the golf clubs to the right destination and intact! Once golf clubs are checked in they are delivered to the aircraft via baggage chutes specially designed to take this kind of baggage.

Barry Prior of Maersk Air UK, comments: "Golf in Denmark is becoming increasingly popular with UK golfers. We have a responsibility towards its continued development from the outset by taking steps to ensure the safe delivery of all golf clubs that we carry. We would always recommend using a golf travel bag, but we have even carried golf bags with the heads just secured with a carrier bag!"
