Air Partner Goes Above and Beyond During Critical Moments
Fort Lauderdale, FL – September 24, 2018– With natural disaster season at its peak, Air Partner – a market leader in private aviation with a special focus on disaster recovery and emergency planning – is frequently called on to support relief efforts, both proactively and after a moment of impact. On September 9, Air Partner was contacted by Radiant Global Logistics, a leading logistics provider that specializes in emergency response situations and humanitarian aid projects, to assist with the safe and speedy delivery of supplies to Guam, a U.S. territory and Pacific island located on the outskirts of Southeast Asia, in preparation for Super Typhoon Mangkhut.
Super Typhoon Mangkhut set its path right down Hong Kong and Southeast Asia this past weekend, with winds of at least 252 kilometers per hour (157 mph). As extreme weather conditions continue, both Radiant & Air Partner remain on high alert to ensure they can offer the best support possible in these crucial environmental conditions.
Air Partner’s cargo division provided Radiant its AN-225, operated by Antonov Airlines, and AN-124 aircraft to help move urgent relief supplies, such as delivering water and meals ready to eat (MRE). As Radiant coordinated the rapid response logistics for the needs of their customer, the Air Partner team worked around the clock to mobilize and deliver the time-critical project successfully.
“Air Partner is committed to providing relief in times of crisis,” said Jack Burt, vice president of Air Partner’s cargo division. “In critical moments like this, Air Partner is able to help communities prepare for potential disaster and destruction. The Emergency Planning Division and cargo divisions are always ready to help execute any level of support and recovery.”
“Through the support and quality of service that Air Partner provides, we were able to successfully complete these projects within 24 hrs after the storm passed,” said Wiley Knight, director of Humanitarian Aid for Radiant Global Logistics. “Our partnership and the absolutely essential understanding of rapid response is exactly what we needed to fulfil our missions.”

The company has successfully evacuated thousands of people to safety in critical moments and has helped companies plan ahead and prepare for extreme weather and environmental conditions.
