Airlift AS was established in 1986 and has for over the last 30 years built up considerable experience and expertise in passenger and cargo transportation. Airlift has a long experience with long-line flight, as well as search and rescue. Svalbard is one example of the many places that Airlift has flown to. This means that the company also has solid experience from flights under difficult and demanding conditions.

Due to Airlift's long experience in advanced aviation, the company has provided services with a global closure field for the offshore industry in the event of a change of a flare stack.
