Seabrook, NH (PRWEB) December 13, 2011
Private Jet Services Group (PJS), one of North America’s largest air charter services firms, announced today “Mission Accomplished”, evacuating a US Citizen from Thailand who fell gravely ill last week.
Private Jet Services Group (PJS) began implementing a strategic "Airlift Contingency Program" for its clients in 2006. The Airlift Contingency Program delivers rapid response flights 24 hours a day, 365 days a year anywhere in the world. This Airlift Contingency Program is designed to track availability of operators that provide similar aircraft types as the ones being used by a travelling member. Just last week, PJS received a phone call from a stricken member, who was vacationing in Thailand and required immediate care. PJS immediately sprang into action, spooling up a Global Express corporate jet, equipped with a full stateroom and 6,000nm range to safely return the gentleman home to the East Coast of the United States.
“He fell ill in one of the hardest to reach locales on earth” commented Greg Raiff, CEO of PJS, “our extraction flight required over flight permits from the governments of Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Japan, Thailand, and Taiwan. I am proud of our operations team, who was able to put together all of these requirements under truly “Life or Death” pressures.”
As a member of the Airlift Contingency Program, when an unforeseen requirement arises, PJS works to analyze all contingency options available. When an aircraft evacuation becomes necessary, PJS will generate the closest suitable aircraft that meets the specific passenger and routing requirements.
