Case Study: AOG parts

Air Partner was requested to urgently deliver a small aircraft part for an AOG from London to Rio de Janeiro. We quickly arranged a local courier company to pick up the part in Derby, UK. After having organized the export clearances for our client our Onboard courier flew same day with the aircraft part from London to Rio to arrive on time. We set this request up in RED-TRACK to notify the client on every single movement from check-in, customs clearance to delivery.

Case Study: Automotive parts

We helped our client, a freight forwarder to avoid a line stop for a luxury auto brand in the UK with the urgent delivery of two automotive pieces. Catching the last flight of the day was a challenge as the shipper was 100 km away from Bangkok airport. Our Onboard courier was able to collect the cargo within two hours, head to the airport, issue export customs clearance and check-in for the departure flight out of Bangkok to ensure a delivery on schedule.

Case Study: Multi-courier flight

We received a request to send a courier from USA to Niger with a set of documents to be sent to a factory. Most suitable routes were through Europe therefore Air Partner checked for a courier based in Europe to take the job over from the US courier due to special VISA requirements for Niger that the courier in Amsterdam could fulfill. We were able to source a courier based in Amsterdam who completed the job to meet the clients’ delivery deadline.
