ATPI welcomes IMEC members to our dedicated IMEC COVID-19 page

to assist members to conduct successful end-to-end crew changes

ATPI Marine & Energy, a leading global TMC that provides innovative travel management solutions to the shipping & offshore energy industries, is an ATPI Group brand. 

Delivering what really matters being our promise, we are determined to provide end-to-end solutions for safe crew changes during and post COVID-19 imposed restrictions by governments and encourage airlines to reinstate flights.

IMEC member crew changes to materialize until 15 Jun

We appreciate that crew travel is mission-critical despite the unprecedented and fast-paced ever-changing procedures at country/port/airport level. ATPI are committed to investigate and find solutions and, further to IMO and IMEC efforts to grant necessary exemptions for seafarers’ travel according to the recommended Framework of Protocols, we are optimistic that there may be partial airport openings in the upcoming weeks. Our aim is to be prepared to assist you with effective and safe end-to-end crew changes, as soon as restrictions start being lifted or eased. 

We therefore invite you to use the respective form and indicate the crew changes you need to materialise on the identified top routes for the next 30 days, so that we can aggregate demand to encourage airlines to consider specific routings according to the actual demand. We would appreciate crew numbers to be as accurate as possible with indicative dates.

 

Other ATPI Marine & Energy solutions & initiatives

Below matrix is one of ATPI’s in-house initiatives, in which we regularly collect information on country & port restrictions in conjunction with flight availability (sometimes even land or sea transport where domestic flights are still grounded). We herewith share our insight of crew change possibilities for the most popular crew nationalities & countries.

You can also visit our ATPI Covid-19 page in which you can find daily updates on Travel Restrictions per Country unless you prefer to subscribe to our ATPI Alerts to receive travel updates direct to your inbox. We have also created a Covid-19 related FAQ page for guidance on where to find the most up-to-date information regarding the spread of the virus, ATPI’s approach to the Coronavirus outbreak and what steps you can take if you are worried about upcoming travel plans.
