Hi Fly operates support flights to the oil industry
28 January 2016
Hi Fly was the chosen company to operate a series of support flights to the oil industry, bound to the Falkland Islands. This operation is occurring since February 2015 and all flights are being performed by an A340-300 from Hi Fly. In each one of trips, which will continue to take place until the end of March 2016, are transported 120 passengers.
The Falkland Islands are an archipelago located east of the South American coast. The exploitation of oil fields in its territorial sea has been one of the islands' main economic activities in the past 30 years.
Hi Fly, chaired by Paulo Mirpuri, is an EU - OPS carrier, FAA approved, EASA and IOSA certified. The Group owns 20 aircraft, and half of them are operated by Hi Fly: A321´s (1 unit), A330´s (5 units) and A340´s (5 units), exclusively available for wet lease worldwide. Wet leasing (supply of aircraft with crew, maintenance and insurance) is Hi Fly core and sole business, therefore unmatched operational expertise in this very specific field has been developed over several years of experience.
