We are proud to be supporting the UK Armed Forces Winter Sports Association again for the 16th year.  We are delighted to continue our sponsorship for the RAF Snowboarding Team, enabling opportunities for the team and supporting the development and introduction of new members to the squad.

It is probably safe to say that the past year has been one of our most busy and challenging years. Adapting to life with Covid hasn’t been plane sailing, however focussing on the positives we have seen great innovative ideas come to life and teamwork thrive. In addition, throughout the past year Voyager has played an essential role in Defence for the UK and our allied nations, reinforcing NATO’s response to the Russia-Ukraine crisis. Supporting Typhoon aircraft, Voyager offers additional fuel for the fighters, enabling greater range and endurance which demonstrates the reach of UK air power to support NATO’s defence mission.

Using our civil registered aircraft, we have been able to provide additional support to the RAF and our allied nations. Provided free of charge, we transported vital NHS medical supplies from the UK to Poland to support those in need in Ukraine and flew a team of Ukrainian Veterans and their families from Poland to the UK to take part in the US Warrior Games – a US competition for wounded, injured or ill service personnel. In addition, with the return of the civil aviation market, we provided a successful commercial flying programme for, supporting their operations throughout the Summer Season.

It has been an incredibly busy year and one that has been achieved through the unfailing dedication of the Voyager Force, our fantastic whole force team of military and civilian personnel. Looking back at the first half of 2022, our fleet of 14 aircraft flew 1,700 sectors to 44 different countries, transporting over 150,000 passengers and delivered 14,000 tonnes of fuel to 1,900 receiving aircraft.

From all at AirTanker, we wish the teams the very best of health and good luck in the games this year!
