The Ocean Independence private aviation division has successfully brokered the charter of a plane to be used on a critical medical mission from Asia to Africa.
After departing an undisclosed Asian country on 1st May, the VistaJet Global 6000 landed successfully in the designated African nation on 2nd May to deliver doctors trained in the treatment of COVID-19 and important medical supplies including ventilators and face masks.
Both the doctors and the equipment are crucial in the ongoing battle against coronavirus. Although reported cases of COVID-19 are slow in many African countries, there is global concern that less developed nations will struggle to curb the spread of the disease and associated deaths.
Ocean Independence Aviation was approached on behalf of the client by a trusted partner in Africa who has carried out several previous special missions. Its team then reached out to various aviation operators and an agreement was reached with global private aviation leader VistaJet. As this is a mission that requires complete trust in all partners, serious consideration was given to the types of available aircraft as well as the experience of all teams involved.
Ocean Independence noted that VistaJet’s global infrastructure and proven operational expertise were defining factors in the choice.
While private jets may be the type of aviation most commonly associated with superyachts, the Ocean Independence Aviation team is experienced and able to assist other types of flight request.
