CHARTERS DURING COVID-19
During the past year, we have been involved in countless charters transporting PPE, testing equipment and other forms of aid worldwide over the course of the pandemic. With our global network of offices covering cargo, group and private jets, we are able to utilise every type of aircraft as well as having a dedicated hand carry team available should an on-board courier be required.
We have worked with a variety of different industries whose requirements during this time included hand couriering test samples to laboratories on a weekly basis. We are the experts in cargo chartering, and can ensure your shipments get where they need to be as quickly as possible.ENQUIRE NOW
