With scheduled flights significantly reduced and some airlines grounding their entire fleets for the foreseeable future, the rapid support that on-demand charter can provide is coming to the fore. Many critical transport requirements can only be fulfilled by unscheduled charter flights, particularly where international embassy teams need to repatriate citizens, sometimes in the face of medical emergencies and often where borders and airports are shut to commercial air traffic.
Drawing on the experience of the repatriation and medical evacuation specialists in the Victor Rescue team, we have been able to fly into action to support critical missions in the face of COVID-19, where the airlines cannot.
Victor Rescue is a highly-personalised 24/7 emergency and mission-critical service, designed to fly you quickly and safely to your destination while supporting you through the process with transparency and compassion.
In an emergency, on-demand aircraft charter is the flexible and reliable solution to depend upon for safety and speed. Offering the support of an expert team, rapid response rate, flexible itineraries, and specialist aircraft, Victor Rescue has been able to answer the challenging travel briefs of organisations such as the Foreign & Commonwealth Office.
Victor Rescue facilitates four key categories of critical travel:
Working alongside government officials, we can assist with repatriation, even if commercial flights are not operating, to ensure you are never stranded abroad and always able to reach home safely. As air travel experts, we pride ourselves on providing the most up-to-date advice relating to your flight plans in line with travel and border regulations.
An example of such work includes collaboration with the FCO on the emergency repatriation of a British family from Morocco with a young child, vulnerable due to an underlying medical condition, after the border had closed.
- Transportation of Key Workers
Keyworkers from a range of industries, including the medical, security and education sectors, are using commercial aircraft charter for essential travel. With aircraft ranging from 18-450 seats available, transport your employees on an unscheduled service and take control of the schedule. Full use of the aircraft allows you to plan seating within the cabin – a highly-valuable benefit when social distancing rules apply.
Victor Rescue were able to support the Gibraltar Health Authority and Government by transporting a team of healthcare professionals to Gibraltar to provide a much needed resource before a spike in COVID-19 cases there in late March.
- Medical Critical Assignments
Under the Victor Rescue service, our rapid medical evacuation and repatriation experts can have a team of doctors or paramedics airborne in just two hours. For patients with highly-infectious diseases, such as COVID-19 or Ebola, we will arrange a portable medical isolation unit, the EpiShuttle PMIU, operated by a dedicated medical team to ensure the highest levels of hygiene and safety. Whatever the emergency, we are available to support you with medical transportation any time of day or night.
- Government & State Missions
In times of crisis, aircraft charter provides the security and speed required by government officials to carry out critical missions, as well as the flexibility to determine their own travel itinerary. We understand that privacy and confidentiality is essential, and Victor Rescue has the capabilities to organise additional security where required, for a wholly protected and secure service.
