Planet Nine Private Air launches executive protection option for clients

Planet Nine Private Air (P9PA) – a California based private charter operator – has announced a newly ratified collaboration with T&M Protection Resources (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 travelers 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.

T&M chairman and chief executive officer, Robert Tucker said: “Planet Nine operates modern next-generation aircraft with an unparalleled safety record.

“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.”

P9PA head of business development, Matt Walter said: “Personal security is an incredibly important concern when traveling 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.

“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.”
