Air charter specialist Chapman Freeborn has launched an enhanced dedicated service for emergency response charters in the form of Aviation Emergency Services.
Chapman said the enhanced charter service was created given the need for robust planning and preparation in the face of increasing global threats. The company will introduce a comprehensive range of solutions, including crisis management, assisting organisations in preparing for unexpected emergency situations, and security and risk management.
Chapman Freeborn has been an integral part of the humanitarian efforts for every major global crisis over the past 50 years, providing solutions for airlifts, airdropping, search and rescue flights, evacuations and repatriations.
The company’s humanitarian efforts over the years include cargo and passenger charters during the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, Hurricane Katrina in 2006, Cyclone Nargis in 2008, earthquakes in Pakistan, Haiti, Nepal, Turkey and Syria, as well as supporting ongoing and post-conflict crises in Yemen, Darfur, South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Chapman Freeborn’s Group Chief Commercial Officer, Neil Dursley, adds, “For five decades, Chapman Freeborn has aided countries, governments, and NGOs during crises. Just in the last few years, we repatriated pandemic-stranded crew members, relocated Afghan citizens post-ISAF withdrawal, and supplied PPE and COVID-19 vaccines globally.”
“We aided Pakistan’s flood victims, helped tackle Greece’s wildfires, and chartered many flights to assist after the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, partnering with operators, governments and aid agencies.
“No challenge is too great, and no location is too difficult for our expert Air Emergency Services team,” Dursley concludes.
