Car of the Week… Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

The car of the week this week is the perfect Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe.

It was equipped with the naturally aspirated 3.6 liter M64 engine, further developed from the 964, and combined with a new dual-flow exhaust system now incorporating two catalytic converters. In contrast with most of the other variants, production of the Carrera coupé and Cabriolet ceased with the end of 1997 model year, except for a very few produced in a shortened 1998 model year.

Introducing…..Ronnie Randall

We are proud and pleased to announce our latest new team member. Ronnie Randall joins our sales team working with Sales Director, Kirby De-Gray Birch.

Ronnie has worked within the insurance industry for eight years, in both personal and commercial insurance sectors and previously worked for well respected high street brokers, A-Plan Insurance. She has a passion for non-standard home and high net worth motors. Her knowledge and natural love for exotic vehicles has already stood her in good stead – in her first week she insured a Ferrari and a McLaren on the same day! Motor heaven for our skilled new team member.


Multi talented Ronnie is also a fully qualified barber. Her own hair is apparently seasonal – in the winter she goes dark and in the summer she is blonde!
Ronnie started her career within the travel industry, notching up 13 years experience working for big players, Virgin and TUI.
Ronnie is married with one little boy, aptly named Reggie.
Small in height, big in personality, Ronnie stands at a compact 5ft 1½ inches – apparently the ½ an inch is extremely important!


Kirby said of Ronnie’s appointment: “I’ve known Ronnie for many years and her reputation to provide top class customer service and sound insurance advice proceeds her. She has already made a huge impact within the office and her experience and knowledge will help to develop others within the team. We are very proud and lucky to have her on board”.

We encourage our team members to reach their full potential and give them the tools, resources, support and guidance for a rewarding career in a satisfying but demanding environment.

The Car of The Day….. Lotus Elan +2

The car of the day today is the wonderful Lotus Elan + 2.

Mr B has a fantastic policy with agreed value, choice of repairer and also salvage retention through ourselves here at AIB.





The Elan +2 was introduced in 1967 with a longer wheelbase and 2 rear seats. 5,200 Elan +2were made. The Elan +2 ceased production in 1975. Because of its successful design and rigorous attention to cost control on the body, chassis, engine and transmission, the Elan went on to become Lotus’ first commercial success, reviving a company stretched thin by the more exotic and expensive to build Lotus Elite enabling funding of the Lotus success in racing over the next ten years.



Thank you for sending these lovely photos Mr B!

We specialise in classic car insurance so remember to call us on 02380 268351 for all your classic car needs.

Madza MX 5



The Mazda MX 5 two door convertible sports car was originally manufactured in Japan and was the best selling sports car of all time in 2000 and won a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.





Mr T was kind enough to take out a policy with Jenna back in July which includes the benefits of both salvage retention and agreed value. Jenna was able to offer an amazing discount as the client was happy with limited mileage and keeping the vehicle garaged overnight. In addition the fact that Mr T has owned the vehicle for some time, meant Jenna could sort amazing cover for a sensible price.

AIB move to new Headquarters

Airsports Insurance Bureau are delighted to announce that due to continued growth, we have moved to new premises, in the heart of Chandlers Ford. Due to our stellar success rate for over 25 years, we required a larger space that was more fitting for our needs and growing team of specialists. Our former base at Fleming Court, Eastleigh, served us well for seven years, but we are now ready and excited for our fresh new future within the new offices.


We have invested in air conditioned, well appointed facilities that will provide us with the opportunity for further expansion as we continue to grow. Our brilliant team of experts and wonderful visitors will enjoy an open plan kitchen, break-out space, board room, training room and managers offices. Based in the prestigious Oakmount House building, Oakmount Road, in Chandlers Ford, the office is located in a superb location close to all transport links.



Conference room


To mark the occasion, we commissioned what is possibly the coolest sofa in the insurance industry… designed and created by our friend Ian, aka ‘The Customizer’. It’s a VW Beetle, cut in half, sprayed in our distinct AIB blue and compliments the Range Rover tyre table beautifully. 


It’s vitally important that our staff keep their hands clean at all times, so we’ve invested in a wall mounted sanitizing unit made from the exhaust system of a Porsche 911, no less! Only the best for our wonderful team of people who do their very best to deliver the excellent service you expect. 



We are thrilled with Ian’s designs – he has produced work for various celebrities, including an aeroplane for Lord Alan Sugar’s No.1 eatery, Sheesh. The automotive industries are full of weird, wonderful and mind boggling designs, so it’s only fitting we replicate a touch of that at our HQ. If you want to add that statement of the unique, with highly creative automotive art, Ian and the team can be contacted here: www.thecustomiser.co.uk


We’d also like to thank our friend Oliver at Office Furniture and Interiors, who has managed the project faultlessly with patience and skill. If you need help with any office design or refit we’d encourage you to contact them, their contact details can be found here: www.ofai.co.uk


Our new address is: First Floor, Oakmount House, Oakmount Road, Chandlers Ford, Hampshire, SO53 2LH. Please do come and visit us (when safe to do so), the brand ‘new’ kettle is always on!
