NEO Air Charter GmbH

Partner News

Today we’d like to focus on our SCN Partner for AIR FREIGHT CHARTER:   NEO Air Charter

If you’re in need of airfreight services which might require a full charter or an ad hoc (+10 ton/maindeck)  but you need someone to assist in negotiating terms and conditions,  look no further than NEO. They ONLY work with forwarders, so there is no concern of inappropriate commercial interventions (although that same discretion can make it hard for them to talk about their work..!)

  • Short response time, neutral and honest
  • Load planning provided by our own loadmasters – load planning and cargo inspections can be done quickly and almost everywhere
  • Available for worldwide requests 24/7

  • OBC – Access to more than 140 couriers worldwide – available with different/difficult Visas


During these Covid-19 times, apart for many urgent face mask and test kit shipments, NEO has been working on a range of shipments all over the world with intricate load factors. Here are just some which we will be bringing you details on shortly (and let us know here at SCN if you have a particular interest in any)


  • 120Flights for one client with Covid test kits before christmas (2/3 daily flights)
  • Oil&Gas ex Guyana – Europe – provided an extra stop on the way back from the Caribbean
  • Production Material Europe- Mexico : charters were cheaper/same price as scheduled service
  • EU-Africa, Intra Africa, UNHCR related business (hospital equipment, etc.)
  • In 2020 started with Passenger Charters (we even flew some EU foreign ministers) – mostly related to Africa and South America and Intra-Africa (eg a couple of flights ex Libya to Chad)
  • In 2020 -a couple of charters related to the elections in Chad
  • On 24DEC (i was on vacation already) some top urgent hospital equipment with an AN12 to Kazakhstan (Frankfurt-Baku scheduled and short transit to Nur-Sultan)
  • 2021 ongoing: weekly 400tons with several charters (even AN124) to several hubs in the US. Animal food-stuff (this weekend 8Flights SAT and SUN)

  • 50tons Machinery going to GDL via US transfer
  • Weekly flights to ATL
  • ……….and many many more.

But let us start the story-board rolling with this one:


Routing: Scandinavia – South America   (End 2020)

Commodity: Oil&Gas Equipment  – Dims: 22,3×2,4×0,38cm/8tons

Client: EU-based Forwarder



It is possible to load into a “normal“ Aircraft, like a 74F, but at that time nobody was willing to deal with it, due the problematic Covid restrictions in Chile and longer ground-time for the Crew involved, therefore the only option would have been a AN124 for a real high price.


With strengthened force from our loadmaster team we put up a planning with VolgaDnepr and their IL76 aircraft to make it happen


Planning ahead: 3weeks prior to flight

Loading Time: 8hours

Unloading Time: 5hours

Equipment needed: a lot of wood, some Cranes (and a backup forklift) and a trailer

Delay: none

Stops en route: 2 Cape Verde Islands and Recife for crew rest
