Bartelings Associates was founded to provide the travel trade with trusted access to extensive expertise and specialist knowledge in all things relating to private air travel.

We have provided major travel brands with advice and tailored solutions to their private aircraft needs. We’ve created otherwise hard to undertake itineraries and we have been able to help our clients enhance their service offering in the private air travel sector.

We’re proud to have worked with Noble Caledonia, Private Jet Tours, Prestige Holidays and Criterion and others.

Our Founder, Gary Bartelings, started his travel career in 1987 with Qantas Airways in Amsterdam. This was followed by time with Qantas Holidays, APT in the UK and Germany and later on Captain's Choice in the UK and Australia.  During the last 12 years he developed his expertise in private jet charter. This has included itinerary development, marketing strategy development and implementation, pricing, aircraft sourcing and evaluation, crew training, Customs and Immigration access negotiations and on-tour management and delivery. 

Gary has created a significant network of highly trusted and experienced global contacts, which he can personally draw on to ensure the creation of fantastic holiday experiences for your customers.

His mantra is that “the customer is central to all our decisions”.
