Delivering organs for kidney transplants
In September 2021, a hospital in Melbourne asked us to help transport five human kidneys to various destinations in Australia as part of an organ exchange programme.
Urgently needed for a series of life-saving transplant operations in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, the organs had to reach their recipients as quickly as possible once they’d been removed from the donors. We worked around the clock to coordinate this complex charter and ensure the operations went ahead on time.

Aircraft: Aero Commander 500
Our team is experienced in arranging medical charters and had the necessary knowledge to source an ideal solution fast. We sourced an Aero Commander that could transport the ice boxes containing the organs quickly and cost-effectively; liaising closely with the client and operator to ensure the critical cargo was loaded carefully and stored correctly onboard.
The Finer Details
Rapid Response: Expert knowledge and unrivalled experience allowed us to arrange this charter within 24 hours of receiving the original request.
Global Network: Our offices in Sydney and Brisbane worked together to coordinate the charter quickly and effectively. ACS representatives personally handed over the organs to the pilot in each location, giving the client personalised support and peace of mind that the cargo was in safe hands.
