At the peak of the Ebola crisis we were operating flights every 48 hours carrying cargo of medical equipment and supplies, vehicles, construction materials and protective clothing. With the support of our 24/7 Operations Department our teams worked tirelessly to secure overflight permits and landing permits to ensure the urgent cargo was delivered rapidly.

In recent years the Group transported 600 tonnes of humanitarian aid to the Philippines when Typhoon Haiyan devastated the region. During the Arab Spring, which coincided with several natural disasters, Air Partner worked around the clock to evacuate more than 12,000 people from across the Middle East in just six weeks, while also delivering aid to Japan and New Zealand.

Air Partner France has flown a spectacular, gigantic mechanical Horse Dragon to Beijing to participate in a Chinese parade to mark the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between France and China. The unique 12 metre high, 46 tonne mechanical model was flown from France to China on an Antonov 124 with the loading taking six hours.

Air Partner, was entrusted with carrying 18 tonnes of artefacts from Rabat in Morocco to Paris Vatry in France for an exhibition of ‘Medieval Morocco’ at the world famous Louvre Museum. The exhibition includes pieces of art such as architectural decoration, textiles, ivory and calligraphy dating back to the 11th-15th centuries, with some pieces up to 4m in height.

Air Partner operates around 50 automotive flights every month, averaging on two flights per working day.

Air Partner chartered a whole aircraft exclusively for one of Vermeer’s renowned paintings. The piece was transported to a State Museum in Rome for a short term exhibition.
