Travel News Asia Videos Podcasts Latest Travel News Asia Wednesday, 5 February 2014

Cobham Aviation Services has secured a contract extension for the provision of a fourth aircraft to service the Chevron-operated Gorgon Project on Barrow Island until 30 April 2015.

We have a long-term relationship with Chevron Australia with more than 50 Cobham aircrew, including pilots and cabin crew, now supporting flight services for the Gorgon Project, said  Ryan Both, Cobhams General Manager Regional Services. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide a tailored chartered jet service, such as meeting the rigorous quarantine requirements associated with operating flights to Barrow Island.

Barrow Island has been a Class A Nature Reserve since 1910 and is an internationally important conservation estate.

To protect this unique environment, all materials, equipment and personnel traveling to Barrow Island including aircraft are subjected to a thorough cleaning, residual disinfection and quarantine inspection program ensuring they are free from any quarantine risk material, Ryan said.

In 2013, Cobham was awarded a Quarantine Facilities Management Award by the Gorgon Project, recognising the companys commitment in upholding the unique quarantine requirements associated with operating flights to Barrow Island.
