On-Board Courier


When it comes to a grounded aircraft, every minute counts – and sometimes the AOG parts you need are not just urgent, but also extremely valuable or fragile. That’s why Sterling offers an On-Board Courier service when time and security are especially critical.

Aircraft parts shipments are hand carried by a Sterling courier who personally escorts and delivers your package directly to your recipient. That means your AOG shipment can simply be walked onto another flight if there are any delays and can clear customs at any time of the day or night.
