Chapman Freeborn reacts to Deepwater Horizon spill

May 20 - Chapman Freeborn Airchartering has coordinated a series of aircraft charters to New Orleans, USA, to help tackle the leak from the site of the Deepwater Horizon rig in the Gulf of Mexico.

The global aircraft charter specialist has arranged flights departing from Europe and the Far East in response to the spill. Chapman Freeborn's UK office coordinated an initial cargo charter using a B747-400F aircraft to transport around 60 tonnes of technical oil spill equipment from East Midlands Airport in the UK to New Orleans. 

A B747-200F charter, managed by the company's Singapore team, also departed to New Orleans from Singapore with an additional 55 tonne consignment and two further B747-200F charters were arranged to transport 80 tonnes of equipment from Qingdao, China, to New Orleans. 

Chapman Freeborn representatives attended the airports to help oversee the loading of the cargos and to ensure all flights left on time.
