Swift AOG (Aircraft on Ground) delivery to avoid costly disruption


Our expert Freight team received an urgent AOG enquiry that required the transportation of a spare part from the UK to Faro, Portugal. The part needed to be delivered with extreme urgency to minimise any disruption and costs associated with the aircraft being out of action. 


As travel restrictions in Portugal began to ease, the demand for air travel to and from the country increased, as countries including the UK, added Portugal to their list of countries where non-essential travel was permitted. With the aircraft grounded, the impact on the airline's operations and knock-on effects on schedules during this peak in demand meant that the shipment needed to reach Faro as quickly as possible. 

The team arranged a full-service door-to-door solution, picking up the spare parts and delivering them to the awaiting Cessna 406 aircraft at Birmingham (BHX) airport. The aircraft landed in Faro (FAO) and was delivered to the final destination within 6 hours from the initial enquiry. When time is of the essence, our team of experts are able to arrange fast, go-now charter operations for your time-critical requirements.
