ProAir reports that demanding assignments from vips, business executives and musicians are helping maintain business in the global economic recession. The company flew two passengers in a Citation CJ3 from Dubai to Asaloyeh in Iran for deployment with one of the world's biggest oil companies. "Various official formalities meant the flight had to be postponed for two days during which the client was kept informed at all times as we worked to complete the private charter commission," ProAir reports.
Separately, ProAir employee Andreas Wald had to complete two tricky assignments - one for an orchestra and one for a pharmaceutical company. The first involved ensuring that nearly four tons of musical instruments transported from Vienna to Athens on a Boeing 737-300F arrived in good condition and on time to meet the musicians' require-ments. The second was in ensuring that all patent law regulations were complied with in the transport of 1.2 tons of pharmaceutical products on a Metroliner II from Athens to Cologne.
