A troubled scheduled airline was grounded, and the client needed to restore a vital air-bridge to shuttle oil company workers between Aberdeen and the Shetland Islands as quickly as possible.
Having anticipated the problem, we already had replacement aircraft on standby, and in less than 24 hours launched two BAe 146s jets to keep the vital link open - to the amazement of our client. We soon added a third aircraft and the three jets operated up to seven crew rotations a day, every weekday, with up to 65 passengers a time, sometimes in severe weather. All in all, we ran more than 600 crew rotation flights and assisted in keeping the client’s project on track.
