JACK fm goes flying

Absolute Radio's JACK fm in Oxfordshire is ready to launch a new traffic and travel service from the sky thanks to a deal with GTN.

The Flying Jack, sponsored by Guy Salmon Jaguar, will be taking off daily from Oxford Airport and is sponsored by Guy Salmon Jaguar.

Ian Walker, General Manager of JACK fm says “We asked the people of Oxfordshire and they told us that improved traffic reports are definitely something they want. Initially it’ll be airborne during the Morning Glory breakfast show, but soon we’ll be flying in the afternoons and weekends as well”.

Alex Scott, Dealer Principal, from sponsor Guy Salmon Jaguar says “We are delighted to sponsor the Flying Jack, we hope we can help and to make life easier for the motorists of Oxfordshire.”

The Flying Jack is owned and operated by JACK fm’s travel supplier Global Traffic Network UK, whose sister companies in Australia and Canada have been flying traffic reporters over the jams for more than ten years. They use the airborne views alongside sensor, camera and Police information to gather the best traffic information on the radio.
