"We have worked with Resource Group for the last couple of years, and have always found the service to be excellent. We look forward to continuing our collaboration." PrivatAir
"We have been working together with Contractair for more than 5 years now. During this time they provided qualified cockpit and cabin crews for our fleet of ATR42 and ATR72 turboprop aircraft. We are highly pleased with the quality of service. The Contractair team is extremely professional and our requests are answered quickly. The collaboration with Contractair has definitely improved our flexibility which is without a doubt one of the most important criteria in times of strong competition. We would recommend their services without hesitation." Claudia Heinemann, Head of Accounting, Avanti Air
"Swiftair has been working with Contractair since the year 1998 and has grown into an extension of our HR department in terms of recruitment and management of crews and mechanics. Contractair has proved to be a valuable partner and has demonstrated its expertise in resourcing crews for some of Swiftair's projects in the most difficult environments, amongst which are West, Central and East Africa, Middle East and Asia. One example to stand out would be our contract for the United Nations, operating passenger aircraft based in Central Africa under various UN Missions. Swiftair has learned from its past experiences that a percentage of the crews are best outsourced to Cia's like Contractair, in order to have the flexibility to tailor our workforce in line with the projects that arise in various parts of the world or to fine tune if so required in line with the economic cycles. In this respect, management at Contractair have always been found to be extremely flexible and professional to address those needs of Swiftair in an ever more globalised airline business." Frank De Witte, Finance Director/CFO, Swift Air

"We have worked with Contractair since 2004 and they have worked with us at every step of the way to ensure that we receive the highest calibre of candidates (some of which are now with us as permanent employees).

"We found Contractair and their staff very professional and quick to react. To this date we still retain some of the pilots that Contractair introduced to us.
