Air Charter FAQs

The cost of chartering a plane for air cargo delivery depends on a number of factors:

  • The consignment’s size and chargeable weight.
  • The type of commodity, for example dangerous goods or hazardous materials which incur additional fees.
  • The consignment’s origin and destination locations, and the distance between the two: the distance from the collection point to the nearest available airport.
  • The availability of aircraft, which varies from day to day and the amount of notice given.

Evolution Time Critical will work with you to identify the best delivery mode based on your budget, deadline and consignment details, balancing risk and cost to provide a bespoke logistics solution.

We can arrange a dedicated cargo plane to fit your consignment. We have access to aircraft able to take from a couple of small pallets through to a maximum payload of 250 tonnes for heavy consignments, as well as aircraft with doors measuring 6.4m x 4.4m (width by height) for wider shipments.

Plus, we can arrange the chartering of aircraft to carry out-of-guage consignments with a cargo hold of 54.3m x 4.86m x 3.04m (length by width by height).

We know that urgency is paramount, and so we can arrange next day, overnight or even same-day cargo arrival via dedicated chartered flights.

Chartering a dedicated private plane (or helicopter) to transport your time-critical goods is the best logistics solution for urgent, just-in-time consignments where delays are not an option.

Air freight forwarding is the transportation of goods via scheduled flights on commercial or passenger airlines. Air freight logistic services, range from next-flight-out freight (NFO), through to consolidated services which are best for less-urgent deliveries.

  • Large, oversized or heavy shipments.
  • Time-critical cargo.
  • Dangerous goods.
  • High-value items.
  • Shipments and items requiring specialist loading, using cranes or lifting systems.

There are restrictions on the airfreight of dangerous goods, which must be properly packed, marked and labeled. By providing the UN number, class number and packing instructions of your consignment, Evolution Time Critical can advise whether an air freight is possible, so get in touch.

Dangerous goods include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Lithium/alkaline batteries
  • Biohazards & biochemical products, including medical waste
  • Aerosols & compressed gasses
  • Flammable products, such as paint or alcohol
  • Magnets & magnetic substances
  • Explosives (fireworks)

Further information on the transportation of dangerous or hazardous goods can be found here.
