Rise in evacuation charters
The recent unrest in North Africa has lead to significant activity at Smart’s Gatwick office, arranging charters to evacuate key personnel and holidaymakers from affected areas. Smart Aviation’s 24 hour operations team has been busy this weekend arranging rapid evacuations from several points in Egypt for various clients, using a combination of chartered Airliners and Executive Jets.
Smart Aviation’s Clive Head commented “When you need to extract people from trouble spots, speed of response is vital. We only work with carriers that have the ability to set up flights at short notice and arrange all the complex logistics associated with such flights. As we already maintain a comprehensive list of available aircraft for our normal ACMI business, we are well placed to arrange ‘go now’ charters to withdraw personnel from areas of unrest.”
24 hours a day, there is another way.
