February 16, 2011

DUBAI, UAE, February 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — As the morning dawns on
another day of anger and dissension in Egypt, expats in the country in fear
for their lives are making arrangements to flee.

Air Charter International has been key in aiding the innocent victims of
this political unrest by getting them safely out of Egypt. “To date we have
chartered numerous rescue flights out of Egypt over a span of a few days,”
said Claire Brugirard, Commercial Sales Manager at Air Charter International.

She stated that all of these were executive and passenger evacuations out
of Egypt. “Given the state of affairs in the country at the moment, our team
faced several challenges in providing emergency response.”

However, Mrs. Brugirard reiterated that with their extensive experience
in the Middle East and by working around the clock, they were able to take
over 1000 passengers to safety.

“When we learned of what was happening in Egypt, our team quickly
compiled a list of aircraft that could be useful in this situation. So when
clients called us we were instantly able to provide information on all the
most suitable available aircraft.”

Mrs. Brugirard said that Air Charter International sourced a number of
suitable and reliable aircraft ideal for emergency evacuation.

For this level of crisis management, Air Charter International chartered
B737-800, B737-400, Hawker 800 and King Air 200. “We chose these aircraft
because they were the most economical and ideal for the range of destinations
which expatriates were being evacuated to.”

Air Charter International successfully evacuated over a 1000 passengers
to areas such as Amman, Prague, Dubai and Washington DC.

“Our dedicated sales team worked 24 hours a day to ensure that every
single person that chartered with us got to their destination safely and
comfortably. We were glad to do our part in helping the innocent victims of
this sudden violence.”
