Our client’s challenge
Our client, a global oil company, had completed an offshore project in Angola and needed to repatriate the project staff back to the UK. However, the flight that many of the contractors were scheduled on had been cancelled, leaving them stranded with no travel arrangements and no accommodation. The contractors were anxious to return home so we stepped in to help.
Our specialist travel team in the UK took on the challenge of making alternative arrangements on behalf of the contractors. Once we had the contractors on mainland Angola, we sourced and booked a good quality local hotel where they could stay and relax while we arranged their repatriation. During this time, our travel team contacted several airlines and were able to secure enough spaces on upcoming flights back to the UK to be able to transport all staff.
Following their night in the hotel, all contractors were able to return back to the UK the next day, suffering a delay of less than 24 hours, a result which wouldn't have been possible if we hadn't taken up the challenge.
