URGENT ‘GO NOW’
Urgent or ‘Go Now’ charters are for those consignments which are too time critical to use any other form of transport. When automotive parts are required to keep the production line running, or an aircraft part needs to be delivered to aid a stranded aircraft with a technical problem, we can help. With our up to the minute information on the location of thousands of aircraft worldwide, we always know where the most suitable aircraft for the job is and we can often have your cargo in the air within an hour of confirmation.
DANGEROUS GOODS / HAZARDOUS MATERIALS
Dangerous goods shipments require a specialist skill set and a comprehensive understanding of all classes and shipping guidelines. Each one of our account managers receives regular expert training and stays up to date with all routing restrictions and the latest regulations, so you are safe in the knowledge that your cargo is in safe hands. We are experts at sourcing the correct aircraft licenced to carry such sensitive freight.
