THE BRIEF:

Milky Chance were on their first tour of South America, with a tight schedule crammed with shows, we needed to find a solution to freight the bands production and avoid them needing to hand carry over 1T of freight on internal flights.


MAJOR CHALLENGE:

The biggest challenge was moving the amount of freight at hand within the deadlines, with much of South America running narrow-body flight schedules and customs processes preventing the band from being able to hand carry in and then air freight out we had to find a solution for the tightest move between São Paulo, Brazil and Asuncion, Paraguay.


SOLUTIONS CREATED:

Due to the tight deadlines, we were unable to freight using a scheduled flight. Without utilising a charter aircraft the only option would have been to hand carry the backline and production cases throughout the entire South American tour. We sourced a CESSNA 208 small charter aircraft to move the freight between São Paulo and Asuncion quickly and efficiently.
