The Chapman Freeborn Group has combined its 24-hour ACMI division and its former operations subsidiary, Paragon Global Flight Support, to form one new company which will assist with passenger and cargo flight operations worldwide. The new company, named Wings 24 Ltd, will act as a comprehensive resource for airlines seeking fast, reliable ACMI sub-charter and outsourced flight support, including permits and aircraft fuelling services, the group said in a statement. One of Wings 24’s core services is round the clock expertise on ACMI and last-minute sub-charter operations worldwide.

The 13-strong Wings 24 team are all professional ACMI and operations experts drawn from a variety of airline and aviation backgrounds. Peter Walton has been appointed general manager of Wings 24 Ltd, with responsibility for day-to-day oversight and strategic development of the Gatwick-based business.

In addition to sub-charter services, Wings 24 provides complete flight support ranging from flight monitoring and ground handling to catering and accommodation arrangements. Wings 24 also provides customers with access to competitive aviation fuel rates at airports worldwide. By monitoring fluctuating fuel prices around the clock, Wings 24 allows airlines to mitigate the impact of sudden rate changes.
