DUBAI, UAE, October 20, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Specialists in providing solutions for all cargo charter enquiries, Air Charter International once again managed to resolve a difficult situation with their extensive industry knowledge and experience.
With this in mind, a leading petroleum company approached the sales team at Air Charter International to help source an aircraft to carry 5750 Kg of explosives to Dushanbe in Tajikistan. "We received the enquiry in mid August" said Richard Dunnink, charter sales broker at Air Charter international. He also explained that the client had attempted to resolve the matter on their own and brought the transport of this sensitive cargo to Air Charter International's attention after all other means had been exhausted.
"From the beginning we knew we had a complicated task ahead of us" said Mr. Dunnink. "Not only did we have the clients pressing hopes that we would be able to solve this enquiry, but we also had the difficult mission of transporting explosives from America over a tense Middle East airspace".
The explosives were meant to be used to dislodge tonnes of oil and gas equipment stuck in the client's oil wells in Tajikistan. Mr. Dunnink stated that although the nature of the transport of the explosives were in no way for military services, the simple fact that these dangerous goods were from America made it hostile to certain regions in the Middle East.
"The original flight was to take the cargo from Houston to Luxembourg, then over to Iran and finally Dushanbe" said Mr. Dunnink. "But because of the many restrictions for American cargo over Iran airspace, we had to find an alternative route".
Mr. Dunnink along with his colleagues in the charter sales team at Air Charter International finally managed to transport the cargo via Sharjah onboard an IL 76. "The cargo finally made it to Dushanbe from Houston with minimal stops".
After almost two months of planning and coordination, Air Charter International managed to do what other aviation providers failed to accomplish and made sure that the dangerous goods were safely and efficiently transported to there destination.
"Although the task of organizing this transport was challenging, we promised the best services and delivered on those promises. The client was very pleased and we hope to be working with them in the future as well".
