Aviation Update – Transfer of the UKCS (UK Continental Shelf) Aerial Surveillance and the Boeing 727 Wide Area Dispersant Application Services to their new bases

Monday, November 14, 2022

Aviation Resources Update

Following our previous statement on 4th October regarding the closure of Doncaster Airport, there have been some changes primarily to timelines and the base for the Boeing 727 Wide Area Dispersant Application Service.  

The UKCS Aerial Surveillance and the Boeing 727 Wide Area Dispersant Application Services will now transfer to their new bases Tuesday 15th and Wednesday 16th November, respectively.

The UKCS surveillance aircraft will still transfer to Humberside, and this remains an interim solution. 

The Boeing 727 will now transfer to Teesside. This also remains an interim solution.

We want to reassure you that our number one priority, as always, is maintaining our response readiness. Our internal project team remains in place, focused on ensuring we maintain our response readiness throughout both aircrafts move to their new location. 


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Global Aviation Manager, Shane Jacobs or our Duty Manager.
