Charter Flight for an Executive from Ecuador to US during COVID-19 Pandemic


International SOS arranged a charter flight for an executive of a financial institution from Galapagos Islands to the United States amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.


Service: Security Evacuation
Location: Galapagos Islands, Ecuador



The executive and his wife were on a leisure trip to the Galapagos Islands when the Ecuadorian government closed the borders and commercial flights were cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 





The client opened a private case to request a charter flight for the executive. International SOS arranged the charter flight and moved the executive and his wife back to the United States in less than 72 hours.


This client, who was not a member of International SOS, received fast, efficient service that allowed their executive to return to work and demonstrated the scope and scale of our capabilities to this potential client.
