Oil and gas industry

bmi regional has proven experience in the planning, execution and management of air charter for the oil and gas industry.

The oil and gas industry needs to ship teams of people where they are required day or night. However, crew exchanges are often required in remote areas, so moving oil and gas crew can be challenging if not handled by an experienced team. bmi regional offers a cost-effective, fast and reliable option for delivery of personnel to your locations. Our Embraer aircraft give us the ability to fly into airports and runways that are much closer to your drill site or service location. We tailor your solution to match your needs and can arrange every aspect of the journey from reservations, passenger manifest, check-in arrangements, security or even special baggage requirements.
