AOG / Handcarry

AOG or “Aircraft On Ground” stands for a critical situation when the aircraft cannot be operated due to technical reasons. This situation may happen if some irreparable technical issue is discovered or due to the unavailability or long transit time of spare parts ordered for repair. The AOG condition is always costly for the airline since grounded aircraft means delays or flight cancellation, reroutings and disappointed passengers. Therefore, logistics response to AOG should be immediate. To start moving spare parts at the very first minute after AOG is declared, Kuehne + Nagel provides a 7/24/365 AOG care team available for our aviation customers through direct hotline and email.

Handcarry is the very top of our AOG service. Sometimes, the circumstances are so critical, that no conventional way of air cargo transportation is suitable to cope with our customer's requirements. For these situations Kuehne + Nagel offer’s handcarry options. The spare part is transported by a courier service as hand luggage on local, international or intercontinental flights. This five star service gives our customers the tranquillity to know that they always may rely on an effective, efficient, flexible and 24 hours response to their critical needs.
