VIP & Private Jet Charter

Rock bands, satellites, football teams and trees…there really is no limit to what we can fly

The latest edition of Update is here – filled with stories of our recent projects – read it here

While our music and entertainment charter experts had their hands full with bands on tour, their colleagues who specialise in charters for sport teams and supporters were moving football teams and thousands of volleyball supporters to tournaments on a range of Boeing and Airbus passenger aircraft types.

Our cargo team in Brazil flew the first satellite manufactured in Argentina on an Antonov AN-124 freighter, while our team in Denmark moved building materials from Norway to Station Nord in northern Greenland for the construction of a new Arctic research station, utilising an Antonov AN-12.

As always, we continue to play a key part in delivering rapid air charter response to oil spills, moving both urgent equipment and crew. Our presence in the energy sector is strengthened in Aberdeen and we tell you about a recent delivery of casing joints and other critical subsea equipment from Glasgow, Scotland to Luanda, Angola on a Boeing 747-400F.

But it is not just people and machines that we fly around the globe, you can read about our recent movement of eucalyptus trees on McDonnell Douglas MD-11F aircraft for planting in Africa, flown all the way from Brazil.
