Evacuation And Rescue Flights

Executive Fliteways: Where Excellence Is In The Air...

Political dangerous weather, political upheaval, civil unrest, revolution, natural disasters and travel disruption often means chartering a private flight is the only way to leave an area quickly and safely. EFI has organized many relief and evacuation flights by private jet and helicopter and is very experienced with dealing with chaotic travel situations.

General Guidelines for Travel Emergencies

Be Prepared, decide and Act Early, Leave ASAP

"If in doubt, get out" has been the international community advice. With airlines over-booking and canceling flights at short notice, you cannot be assured that a reservation will guarantee your departure. The earlier you make the decision to leave the higher the probability you will be successful.

Use Regional Airports - Avoid the crowds

Often it is a country's main international airport that gets closed first and the smaller regional airports are usually kept open for longer. Most airlines will be already committed to using the main international airport, so not only will the main hubs be extremely incredibly busy but traveling to them by road will likely involve substantial delays. Private jet charters have a proven agility during travel disruption, utilizing many more airports than airlines and can use smaller regional airports with shorter runways whenever possible.

Reduce cost - Fly to the nearest safe country

The cost of flying home by private jet can be substantially more than evacuating to the nearest safe country.

Documentation - Scan your documents

Obtaining flight permits can be delayed if passenger information is not complete or supplied in full at the time of application. Having passports, corporate IDs and medical documentation pre-scanned and online is advisable. You may also find it useful to have copies of these documents or have present instructions for access to representatives outside of the country, as internet access can become restrictive or may not be available from within the region.

Group together - Fill the seats

When chartering an aircraft you must pay for the whole aircraft (not per passenger), so it becomes a more pleasing prospect to share these costs with other persons. In situations of travel disruption such as evacuations, places such as the hotel lobby can be a focal point to find fellow passengers who may wish to share the price of the charter for a spare seat on your aircraft.

Our Private Jet Charter Fleet

Light PRIVATE Jets: 8 Passengers

A light jet is a category of small jets seating anywhere from 4 to 8 people (depending on configuration) and often with a maximum takeoff weight of under 10,000 pounds. Light jets are considered the lightest business jets and are approved for single pilot operation. Light jets are ideal for shorter trips for business meetings or family getaways.

Midsized PRIVATE Jets: 10 Passengers

Midsized jets – also referred to as mid-sized jets, are great for long distance travel such as transcontinental flights or trips requiring larger passenger capacity (depending on configuration). Unlike a light jet rental, Mid-size private jets are incredibly versatile private aircraft, combining the comfort and space of larger personal planes, with the speed and agility of small private jets. Private jet speeds help the aircraft travel a range of over 5,000 nautical miles and typically seats 7 to 10 passengers.

Super MidsIZED JETS: 16 Passengers

Super mid-sized jets are designed to comfortably accommodate from 8 to 16 passengers (depending on configuration) - with substantial baggage space. Super mids can be chartered for international, non-stop transcontinental or mid-range travel with an average flight range of up to 9 hours of flight time - or 4,500 miles - in optimum conditions.

Large PRIVATE Jets: 16 Passengers

Large cabin jets have a cabin height of over six feet. Cabin width varies from nearly seven to over eight feet, while cabin length can range from 28 feet to nearly 50 feet. With endurance of 8 to 10 hours, many large cabin jets - like the Falcon 900 - are also designed for longer range flights such as New York to Paris. Large cabin jet cabin amenities can include WiFi, private lavatory, PlayStation video games, satellite phone, cabin attendant and a full galley.

Turbo Props: 10 Passengers

What sets turbo props apart is their versatility. Unlike other private jets, planes with a turbo prop engine don’t need a full runway for landing and take off; a short grass airstrip is more than enough. Which makes them perfect for taking the route less traveled. Made for short to medium journeys, turbo prop planes can land on grass airstrips and short runways. Turboprops are an economical way to fly, with room for eight to ten passengers.

Helicopters: 13 Passengers

While there are many reasons to take a chartered helicopter flight - the fact that for most it is a once in a lifetime experience is probably the most prominent. Helicopter flight in itself is an adventure that most people find thrilling. Making use of helicopter flights is also a great way to mark a special occasion and create new memories that will make a special day even more special.
