Flying vital PPE from China to India

In April 2020, a freight forwarder asked us to help transport vital PPE and mask-making equipment from China to India, where it was urgently needed as the country battled Covid-19.

With the pandemic disrupting fifth freedom flights, the client turned to Air Charter Service’s unrivalled expertise to ensure the cargo was delivered on time.

Our Solution

Route: Shanghai > New Delhi

Aircraft: Boeing B757-200F

Immediately after receiving the late-night call to our London office, we contacted our team in China and liaised with the carrier to book a suitable aircraft, confirm insurance and secure the necessary permissions and landing rights for the flight to go ahead. As the cargo was a shipment of urgently needed medical supplies, we also managed to secure support from government officials to expedite the approval process.

The Finer Details

Rapid Response: Disruption to scheduled services was causing an increase in last-minute charter requests during the pandemic, so our team ensured we were constantly up-to-date on the latest aircraft availability and prices. This allowed us to book the charter within four hours of being briefed.
