International Rescue

What happens if people working for a global organisation become trapped in a difficult or even life-threatening situation? How can they be plucked swiftly away from a danger zone? UK-based global aviation services group Air Partner has vital and often life-saving experience in emergency planning. Airliner World’sBarry Woods-Turner visited the company to find out more.

We live in uncertain times; the threat of terrorism, kidnappings, political upheaval and natural disasters are ever-present. So, an increasing number of companies are buying-in specialist help to ensure their overseas staff stay safe. Many will already have finely-honed evacuation plans in place, but where do they find air transport, often at very short notice, and have it in position ready to go? This is where Air Partner offers companies and individuals reassuring help, providing a comprehensive package of services, from sourcing suitable aircraft through to detailed emergency evacuation planning and execution.
