Air Cargo and Freight Charter

Why choose a cargo and freight charter service


Cargo charter flights have become an indispensable tool for connecting remote destinations in Australia with the rest of the country. By providing direct, flexible, and reliable transportation solutions, these flights are unlocking the economic potential of remote regions, supporting businesses, and improving the lives of communities. As Australia continues to grow and develop, cargo charter flights will remain at the forefront of bridging the logistical gap and ensuring that the benefits of progress reach every corner of the nation.

Direct and Expedited Delivery


Cargo charter flights eliminate the need for multiple layovers and transfers, significantly reducing transit times and ensuring the timely delivery of essential goods.

Flexible and Customisable

Cargo charter flights can be tailored to accommodate specific cargo requirements, including oversized dimensions, temperature-controlled environments, and specialized handling procedures. This flexibility ensures that even the most sensitive and challenging cargo can be safely transported to remote locations.

Accessibility to Remote Areas

Cargo charter flights can reach remote and inaccessible destinations that lack scheduled air freight services, providing a vital link to communities and businesses that would otherwise be isolated.

Support for Economic Development

Cargo charter flights play a crucial role in stimulating economic development in remote regions by facilitating the transportation of goods, materials, and equipment necessary for businesses and industries to thrive.

Platinum (as Lucas Air) had a long-term contract for Advertiser Newspapers (News Ltd) to fly 1,200kg - 2,400kg of newspapers to Kangaroo Island and Port Lincoln for distribution 364 nights of the year. We delivered with exceptional performance, flying in the early hours of the morning, overcoming fairly large weather, crewing & aircraft availability hurdles. This contact ended due to rise of digital publication.

Here's what Andrew Carlisle, Logistics Operations Leader SA, had to say:

"The business dealings between both parties has evolved into a business partnership. The standard of operation provided, the appropriate aircraft reliability and professionalism displayed have been important factors in Advertiser Newspapers extending the initial contract for a further two year period."
