Aircontact, in collaboration with the Norwegian Polar Institute and Norse Atlantic Airways, has played a role in making history by organizing the first landing of a Boeing 787 Dreamliner at Troll Airfield (QAT) in Antarctica. The landing took place at 02:01 local time on Thursday, November 16, 2023.
Concerning the booking of charter flights for groups in the summer of 2024, we observe that flight capacity is under pressure. There is significant demand from both airlines and tour operators, while the capacity is limited.
At Aircontact, we notice a clear increase in demand for chartered flights for incentive trips in the Mediterranean region.
On November 1st 1962, Aircontact was founded in Oslo, Norway, making us the oldest air broker company in the world.
We are celebrating 60 years in business and we are still flying high.
On February 26th the largest civilian aircraft ever, landed at Troll Research Station in Antarctica. The flight was arranged by Aircontact on behalf of The Norwegian Polar Institute and operated by Icelandair, on their Boeing 767-300.
During the pandemic, there has been an increased demand for aircraft charter connected to crew change. This due to the fact that scheduled airline services have been reduced, but also because one can avoid risk of being infected with COVID-19 as you travel as a closed group.
Team Aircontact thanks customers and suppliers for a great cooperation during a challenging year. We wish you all a happy holiday and all the best in the year to come!
Aircontact is proud to announce that we have been certified for the ISO 14001:2015 standard.
Aircontact has the past months worked intensively to move crew and employees to/from destinations all over the world. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, charter flights are more challenging to plan than normal. In Aircontact we are though welcoming all challenges, and we have been able to perform all crew change charters booked with us.
