Adagold Aviation Pty Ltd (Adagold) is pleased to announce the successful completion of the 500th service in support of the Australian Defence Force (ADF), Middle East Air Sustainment Services. For over a decade, Adagold has been providing scheduled charter flights, transporting personnel and equipment between Australia and the Middle East Region utilising a dedicated Airbus A340 aircraft.
Services have operated from Brisbane, Sydney, Perth, Townsville, Adelaide and Darwin, providing reliable air service to and from the Middle East, for ADF personnel on deployment. The service has transported over 105,000 ADF members with over 4.2 million kilograms of baggage and a further 7.8 million kilograms of cargo.
During the ten years, the services have operated at a 98% on-time performance record which exceeds the industry average significantly, by over 10%. Logging over 16,680 hours of actual ‘air time’, the aircraft has spent the equivalent of almost two full years in the sky supporting the ADF.
“The 500th service represents a significant achievement for Adagold and the relationship with the Australian Defence Force. We are extremely proud of the hard work and dedication of our team and our suppliers in delivering Aviation Services, to continually meet the needs of the ADF.” – Simon Llewellyn, Adagold Aviation Pty Ltd, Director/CEO
This achievement would not have been possible without the commitment of our dedicated team, suppliers from Australia, the Middle East and, in particular, our partnership with Hi Fly, a leading provider of widebody contract charter aircraft.
The long-range four-engine capabilities of the Airbus A340 have allowed the operations to continue safely, efficiently, and in full compliance with all International, Federal, State or Territory health requirements during the COVID-19 global pandemic.
Since 2010, the continued ongoing relationship highlights the trust and confidence from the ADF placed in Adagold’s team, services and capabilities to deliver these essential services week on week reliably.
Adagold Aviation is Australia’s leading independent provider of Air Charter and Aviation Services and has supported ADF deployments around the world since 2002, delivering the highest standards of service, safety and reliability.
