Clients and testimonials

We have worked with a variety of leading brands in the travel sector, including Amadeus, Associated Newspapers, Gatwick Airport, London City Airport, Lufthansa, Manchester Airport Group and Virgin Atlantic.

Below are a few examples of bespoke content we have produced:


We worked with Gatwick Airport and produced bespoke travel guides to their most popular destinations, with short, engaging sections focusing on insider tips including 'Summer highlights', 'If you love a thrill' and 'Best hidden gems'. We also supplied high-resolution images to display alongside the guides.
We have been working with London City Airport for over three years, producing bespoke content ranging from destination guides and '24 hours in' city guides to engaging leisure features and extensive ski content. We initially supplied all the copy for their site re-launch in February 2012 which resulted in a significant 43% increase in average time spent on the airport’s website, while page visits went up by 19% compared with 2011. The position and visibility of the airport on natural searches have improved considerably over the last couple of years. Fiona Bennell, e-commerce Manager for London City airport, said: "We choose to work with Columbus as it provides us with unique content created to our exact requirements, providing tailored content to match our passengers and target audience profiles; content we could not have found readily available elsewhere."
We have been worked with the Manchester Airport Group for sometime, producing regular features for their online consumer magazine Depart Plus, as well as over 250 destination guides for their main website. The features focus on local knowledge, insider tips and unusual angles, from 'Gastropub fever in Chicago' to 'Oslo's wild side'
We produced over 350 destination overviews for Associated Newspapers' new MailTravel website in 2012. The overviews required a specific tone and style and focused on various themes supplied by the client, ranging from 'Escorted tours' to 'Beach' and 'River cruising'.
