Remote Destinations

We go where scheduled flights won’t

We are experts at arranging charter flights to the parts of the world that are hard to reach – and generally require specialized arrangements and planning. We can organize ad hoc flights or more extensive charter programs to:

  • War Zones
  • Regions of political instability
  • Oil fields
  • Natural disaster zones
  • Countries hit by strikes
  • Locations with inadequate infrastructure

Delivering vital supplies…

Many of the aircraft available for charter are ideally suited to remote locations. This includes the AN-12 witch can use unpaved shorter runways to deliver:

  • Humanitarian aid
  • Post deliveries
  • Industry charters
  • Generator turbines
  • Consumer goods

Experts for charters to remote locations…

We can arrange charters for you into areas that others can’t. Obtaining hard to get permits is another of the valued assets we offer our clientele.

Heavy and Oversized

Making light work of heavy loads

Many of our clients are unable to split their cargo over different scheduled services or send oversized freight on lengthy journeys by land or sea. For this reason, we are prepared to help with:

  • Oil industry assemblies, including large pipes and drilling equipment
  • Power station parts
  • Marine diesel engines engineering constructions
  • Aircraft parts including engines for grounded aircraft
  • Satellites for space missions
  • Vehicle transportation, such as jeeps and communications trailers
  • Film & music stage sets

Finding solutions for difficult cargo…

  • The IL-76 and AN-124 are often used as the solutions for outsize cargo that needs to be transported on medium or long haul flights
  • We utilize longstanding relationships and mutual respect with the operators of such aircraft
  • We carefully monitor the availability and negotiate the best charter prices in the industry
