When one of our global security clients called ACC requesting assistance in repatriating a group of NGO staff from Yemen, our dedicated aircraft charter team were faced with one of their most challenging missions since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Our expertise, experience and supplier network were key to the success of this highly challenging operation. It was vital that we knew which regional operators to utilise for such a difficult mission, and that we understood how to obtain the permits and permissions required.
The eight NGO personnel were safely recovered to the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa earlier this week – completing one of the most challenging COVID-19 missions undertaken by ACC’s aircraft charter team so far.
