Planet Nine Private Air launches executive protection option for clients
Planet Nine Private Air (P9PA), the Van Nuys, California based private charter operator has announced a newly ratified collaboration with T&M Protection Resources, LLC (‘T&M’) to provide personal protection for its international customers.
Planet Nine is offering the T&M solution on a non-exclusive basis as an added safety enhancement, in response to the increasingly uncertain global environment and the need to mitigate potential risks to HNWI/influential and high-profile passengers.
The addition of this valued global aviation solution follows interest from a growing clientele of ultra HNW/ high profile clients and governments who want that extra layer of security, even beyond the inherent safety of flying privately aboard P9PA’s Falcon 7X business jets, from discreet FBOs.
T&M’s executive protection services mirror the rigorous standards employed by the U.S Secret Service. Short and longer term domestic and international personal protection is offered to travellers on Planet Nine flights and at their destinations by a long-standing, experienced company comprised of security agents and security drivers who have law enforcement and/or military experience.
Planet Nine operates modern next-generation aircraft with an unparalleled safety record,” commented Robert Tucker, Chairman and CEO of T&M. “We are pleased to bring in an extra layer of protection with our worldwide network of vetted companies and security personnel, uniquely positioned to provide 24-hour physical security to both aircraft and passengers at short notice.”
T&M has earned its reputation over 35 years through its ability to make critical decisions and rapidly deploy security personnel in response to evolving threat conditions.
Through its Command Centre based in New York City, T&M’s experienced security, cyber security and intelligence agents maintain situational awareness and obtain real-time alerts and intelligence on factors that may impact traveller safety during flight and on the ground.
“Personal security is an incredibly important concern when travelling to remote locations in aviation. We, like our clients, take it extremely seriously, so we are pleased, after just six months of flying, to be adding this important layer of safety to our operations. We are duly proud to make this the Planet Nine differentiator on our long-haul flights,” said Matt Walter, Head of Business Development. “We consider it very important to consider security risks at planned destinations and, when needed, obtain intelligence briefs and organise executive protection services in advance.”
