Value: Your personal concierge on the ground

Air2Ground Concierge (A2G) is a global concierge network dedicated to ensuring the success of your mission at your destination—by offering a high-touch level of service focused on the passenger and crew, beyond that of what you typically receive from the ground handler. A2G is exclusively available on missions coordinated by your Trip Support Services team.

A2G was created to drive down operating risk and stress on the ground by providing a higher level of on-site management than what you typically get at challenging and high-risk destinations. This includes destinations:

  • That are highly congested to the point where extra attention is needed to ensure consistently smooth service.
  • With ith regulations, restrictions, or practices that are not optimal for general aviation (GA) operations.
  • Not experienced in GA operations.
  • Lacking infrastructure.
  • Not experienced in GA large aircraft operations.
  • Where a Universal Aviation® FBO or ground support location isn’t already established.

An Extension of Your Team

An A2G agent is automatically mobilized to be your extra level of support — when you land and for the duration of your trip. You can think of each A2G representative as your personal go-to person on the ground.

Overseeing All On-Airport Arrangements

Each A2G agent provides on-site coordination and QC of all third-party services, 24 hours in advance of your arrival.

  • Slots and parking
  • Fuel arrangements
  • Ground transportation
  • AOG support
  • Customs/Immigration facilitation
  • Escorting passengers through the airport
  • Managing last-minute changes
  • Handling

Value: When and where you need it

A perfectly planned and executed mission can be tarnished if the ground transportation doesn’t meet passenger or crew expectations. Late arrivals, the wrong size vehicle, uninformed drivers, and bad information are all risks that can adversely impact mission success – and create unnecessary stress. With Universal Private Transport, you can arrange VIP ground transportation anywhere in the world and be confident that when plans change, your ground transport will change with it seamlessly.

More experience with business aircraft travel than any other company

A ramp-side pickup. A last-minute schedule change. The highest of expectations. As a wholly-owned Universal Weather and Aviation, Inc. company, we understand the needs of business aircraft crew and passengers like no other private transportation company.

Highest quality vehicles

Crew van or town car. New York or New Delhi. No matter the destination, we’ll secure you the best available option, and you’ll know exactly what you are getting well in advance.

Licensed and insured professionals

You do not want to end up in an unlicensed taxi—even if it is a Mercedes. All our providers are in compliance with local regulations for providing transportation services. In addition, since we specialize in business aviation, we carry better insurance coverage than a standard limo or taxi company.

Easy communication.

Make arrangements and changes via phone, e-mail, SMS, or online. Manage preferences for receiving confirmations, driver details, and updates for passengers and anyone else on your team.

Value: Your flight plans—worldwide, optimized, accurate.

With online flight planning, accuracy and speed are everything. Reliable ETEs and fuel burn estimates are critical to helping you make decisions and control costs. To get it all right, you need to account for things like aircraft performance data, global weather forecasts, routing restrictions, and navigational charges. Then there are tankering considerations and weight and balance limits that you need to know. And you can’t afford to wait.

With Universal, you get an online flight planning system that does all this for you. Create and file accurate flight plans for routes worldwide, and do it quickly and easily—all on your desktop or iPad through uvGO.
