Business jet ground with VIP on board

Case Study Aviation



A business jet with a VIP client on board was scheduled to depart Saint Kitts in the Caribbean. Prior to departure, the crew discovered a main battery needed replacing. The VIP urgently needed to get back to Los Angeles Airport – so time was of the essence.

The only battery available was in Chicago, Illinois in the US and since it was considered Dangerous Goods could not be shipped on a passenger aircraft.


  • Scheduled a charter aircraft to transport the battery from the US to Saint Kitts – which was in the air within an hour of client’s call
  • Arranged for landing permits, customs clearance and pick up of the battery
  • Hand delivered the battery, which arrived on time and cleared customs quickly
