Crew movements (Charter flights)

Our Commercial Jets team recently assisted a leading vessel operator who were undertaking maintenance work on one of their ships. Air Partner flew twenty engineers from Aberdeen to Bergen, three times a week over a period of a month, using a Dornier 328 turbo prop with 31 seats. Due to the location and lack of scheduled services to meet the requirements of the customers' crew change, private charter provided a flexible solution for the client, saving time and hassle by being able to fly to their own schedule directly between the required airports.

Freight Oil & Gas transport

The freight forwarder client was very pleased to have a professional team on his side, to deal with his challenge of oil and gas equipment needing urgent uplift from the UK  to the U.S.  The cargo located in the Midlands, consisted of large crates and long pipes and was weighing in at almost 30 tonnes.  The experienced account managers of the Air Partner UK Freight department, managed to secure space on a B747 at a good rate for an aircraft to divert on the very next day,  from its usual U.S. route ex-Amsterdam into Doncaster. The aircraft landed in Doncaster airport for a short ground time whilst the 22 crates were loaded via the nose door. The freighter then arrived in Huntsville, Alabama, on the Friday afternoon and airside trucks were arranged to collect the parts straight from the aircraft in order for the client to make delivery before the weekend.

Emergency Evacuation

Air Partner’s Emergency Planning Department received a call from a client with an air evacuation contract requesting the urgent movement of around 50 staff from Erbil, Kurdistan region of Iraq to Istanbul or Vienna. Our operations and commercial jets departments immediately checked with locally based and Turkish aircraft operators for suitable aircraft to fly the evacuation. The best option presented by Air Partner and chosen by the client was to evacuate to Istanbul using a Georgian aircraft. Within 12 hours, permits for the flight had been secured and contracts agreed for the flight which would operate the next day, a Saturday. Later that evening the Iraqi government cancelled the permits for any direct flights to Istanbul and required aircraft to depart to their country of registration. Air Partner made full use of their 24/7 operations centre in the UK and quickly arranged for an aircraft to operate to Istanbul via Tbilisi where the airline could arrange a fast turn around and crew change. The flight departed as planned on the Saturday and arrived in Istanbul only a couple of hours later than originally planned, despite being required to fly via Tbilisi. We were able to use our extensive database of aircraft operators as well as our 24/7 operations capability to safely and quickly evacuate staff from a hazardous situation.
