German long range and vvip operator DC Aviation has joined forces with UK security business MODA Solutions to provide extended flight and destination security services for its passengers.
Dubbed the Flight Consort Service, this is designed to provide an integrated on-call service for royal, presidential or state regular users as well as corporate users.
Charter clients will be offered destination guides and briefings and the current security situation there, security audits on unusual destinations where a risk may be perceived, and advice on specific client needs.
Specialist inflight air marshals can be provided, as well as safe and secure vehicles, diplomatic protection drivers, translators and specialist close protection officers, including special forces personnel with country-specific know-how and local connections.
A crisis management response team can be on hand to deal with any in-country problems that may occur, including security, specialist lawyers, diplomatic lobbyists and PR.
MODA Solutions provides security services to individuals, companies and governments worldwide and has a reputation for ensuring security by the use of special forces personnel.
"We appreciate that our clients' journeys do not begin or end on the runway," says DC Aviation. "Their journey has a purpose and the function of the alliance is to offer clients the choice to seek associated and facilitated support to ensure that purpose is successfully and safely carried out."
