New Opps for Chauffeured Vehicles

Posted on March 31, 2008 by LCT Magazine

MORE FOREIGN CLIENTS? The weak dollar has a silver lining for the chauffeured transportation industry in that more foreigners will be visiting the U.S. this year. For black car operators that means many new potential clients arriving at airports who will need targeted, hassle-free transportation -- especially in the Southern California freeway metropolis that can seem daunting to an outsider. For limousine services, many of these tourist-travelers may prefer limousine tours and/or rides to popular destinations. Operators may want to look closely at their individual markets and see if there are business opportunities that can help offset higher gas prices and declining corporate travel because of the economic slowdown. Increased foreign arrivals could become most pronounced at Los Angeles International Airport, where international airlines are planning to add several new flights from cities abroad, according to an article in this morning's Los Angeles Times.
