COMPANY BACKGROUND:

The KGC Group is the parent company of LondonAirConnections, flyingpurplepig.co.uk and others.

We are a family run business. Originally set up in the late 1990's in North London, by local drivers, we have changed and developed over the last decade or so into an leading Airport and Cruise Port Private Hire Vehicle Transfer Specialist.

Originally we offered Estate Car services to Retailers Home Deliveries, quickly added to this was our Local Animal Collections Service (the original LAC). This was basically a Pets to Vets Service. Within a year or so, many clients were asking us to take them to the airport too, so LondonAirConnections was born. So successful was this airport service that in 1999 we decided to off-load the Estate Car Service, and the year after we gained two major corporate airport transfer accounts, so we also off-loaded the Local Animals Collections.

In 2006 we opened a new executive style minicab service in North London, thoughtfully called "Cockfosters Car Service". Our office for this was based on the platform concourse in Cockfosters Underground Station, and although a great location - it was noisy, partly due to a new London Underground Speaker system put in shortly after we opened, so this office was not as useful as we had hoped, for LondonAirConnections, at times we simply couldn't hear our clients on the telephone!!! It was however successful for our local circuit as we succeeded in making a difference in Local Minicab Services in the local area, by offering an improved executive style service - other local offices also had to raise their game!

In 2007 we opened a new operator call centre in Whetstone for LondonAirConnections.com, leaving Cockfosters Car Service in the Station at Cockfosters Station. We quickly found that keeping two separate companies running together at the same time was much too time consuming, it was far too much for one team to keep going. So we had a choice... get management in for one and grow both quickly so they could both be self sufficient, or sell the local service and keep the original family aspect going with the other. In the end we opted for the later, and sold the Cockfosters Cars venture on to a young team of drivers from North London. This company is still up and running today, so if you are in the Cockfosters area needing a local cab give them a call!

2008. Once we sold Cockfosters Cars, we changed our strategy a little. As we had many Travel Agents in the USA, and around the world, using our services on a regular basis, and as we had just started offering tours, we decided to move directly into the tourist trade - although we decided not to turn corporate clients away.

2009. Sensing recession, we also stopped offering 'accounts' in late 2008. Although at first everyone thought we were crazy, "turning down work", but actually in the long run it turned out to be the best move we ever made... no debts, no chasing payments, and most clients happy to pay by credit card because the card company's protected their transfers! Best of all, for our drivers, it also meant no scrubs or 'no-shows'. Even our small booking fee to cover the extra costs was taken well by our understanding clients - we like to think that they knew they were going to receive our great professional 'family-run' style service!

In 2010, we were proved right about accounts, with a number of private hire firms have been forced to close, due to bad debts. One company we knew well went down being owed £10,000's. This in turn meant it owed it's drivers £100's! A stark warning to those who accept account clients without security! All of our jobs are pre-paid, so we pay as soon as the job is done!

TODAY.
So today, we have the experience in most aspects of the Private Hire Trade, from small to large minicab circuits, and from home to large office set-ups. Since 2008 we have had no interests in any local circuits, nor have we any plans for any in the future. We have now become a small network of individual licensed operator/drivers - we no longer offer work to individual drivers, the paperwork is just too much! (Particularly for drivers who do monthly insurances etc!) It is smoother and easier for all of us just to 'Network' and 'Tender' work between us and other individual Licensed Operators, each being responsible for their own paperwork. Of course we check customer satisfaction regularly and only use top grade operators who really care about our clients.

We think this is the perfect solution, so why not join us and see for yourself - you have nothing to lose!

The KGC Group has a call centre in North London, but there are no amenities here.
LondonAirConnections specializes in Airport, Hotel and Cruiseport Vehicle Transfers Only.
Flying Purple Pig Tours specializes in London & Southeast Photo Tours.
We have some major (pre-pay c/c) accounts including major travel agents and some corporate too.

We have highly experienced Duty Drivers for every shift, who look after our other drivers and clients when/if your office is closed.
We operate an emergency number for clients, to reach our Duty Drivers, should they encounter difficulties whilst they are traveling. Duty Drivers can help you if you have problems with clients, such as clients lost luggage, road delays, confirming details etc. Duty Drivers can also help if your journey is delayed or if a client is late for a pickup appointment etc. They are there to help smooth operations.

WHAT IS EXPECTED OF YOU AS A SCHEME MEMBER ?
APPLIES TO ALL KGC GROUP BUSINESSES.


The KGC Group is committed to providing excellent services to it's clients and as such we emphasize that drivers must be acting to the highest standards at all times. Complaints from clients are rare, but upon a complaint being found in clients favour, compensation may be paid out, which maybe up to the value of the full fare. In this case the driver concerned will have the compensation value added to their rent for the following week.

OPERATOR/DRIVERS MUST NOT SOLICIT BUSINESS FROM ANY CUSTOMER FIRST INTRODUCED TO THEM BY OUR COMPANY.
We will dismiss any driver that does so.
We will also prosecute any driver that solicits business from our clients - this is treated as theft from the firm, and all of our other operator/drivers!
THIS APPLIES TO ALL KGC GROUP BUSINESSES.

FULL TIME AIRPORT/ CRUISEPORT JOBS: (LondonAirConnections)
All Airport work is offered in a list format.

The driver at top of the list is offered the job by text message and then he/she is then relegated to the bottom of the list, and all other drivers rise one place in the list.

This system is then repeated.

We do try to tie up jobs to get returns, but this is not always possible.

Because we only take advance bookings, most jobs are offered the day before pickup. This allows our drivers to plan their day etc.

Sometimes journeys are offered same day, but this is rare.

Driver pay commission on jobs completed only.
