Pilgrimage Charters

Direct flights to the world's holy places

Pilgrims expect more than other travellers. They have religious and dietary needs that scheduled flights cannot easily accommodate. Many travel for physical and spiritual healing; they tend to be elderly and infirm and are often accompanied by helpers and sophisticated medical support. For whatever reason they fly, pilgrims share a unity of purpose that lends itself to a tailor-made charter flight.

Lourdes, Jerusalem, Mecca, Rome...

Our charter flights have taken groups of pilgrims to many of the world's holy places with minimum transfer distances and the least amount of fuss. Destinations included Lourdes, Jerusalem, Mecca, and Rome. We handled all the operational and contractual details which left the tour organisers with more time to concentrate on their programme and the needs of their pilgrims. We can do the same for you.

Anglo European offers you:

  • - Choice of airports, dates and departure times
  • - Dedicated check-in and departure areas for your group
  • - Assistance for passengers with reduced mobility
  • - Use of air-bridges (where installed)
  • - Direct, non-stop flights
