Case studies

Whale sharks by private jet

Visiting some of the most remote and idyllic locations in Australia is a routine privilege for our team at Pionair. After welcoming some 48 guests aboard our luxurious, all business class aircraft, our team transported the luxury travel group to sights that most passengers will not have the opportunity to see in a lifetime of travels.

The itinerary included Uluru, vineyards of Margaret River, Coffin Bay oyster farms and of course seeing the whale sharks at Ningaloo Reef

Delivering firefighting volunteers to bushfire frontline

Bushfires present a rapidly evolving situation and require a time critical response. As bushfires ravaged much of NSW, the NSW Government required the urgent movement of firefighting volunteers to the frontline. Accelerated operational planning and our highly experienced crew, allowed flight operations to be deployed quickly and safely.

 

Our standard configured 80 seat aircraft allowed the volunteers to travel comfortably while also offering additional cargo capacity for equipment to be carried.

Premium seafood, direct to market

While Tasmania is revered for its high quality seafood, the region is dependant on aviation for timely access to the World's top seafood markets in Singapore, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

 

As commercial airlines dramatically cut capacity during the Covid-19 pandemic, our dedicated cargo aircraft were optimally sized to fill the void with regular cargo flights and in turn extend a much needed lifeline to Tasmanian producers
