Our Knowledge Runs Deep
From ship owners and ship management companies to crewing & manning agents, we understand the complex challenges you face. Our Wings® Travel Management team has the expertise, experience and flexibility to meet your unique marine industry travel needs. With specialist consultants who have been in the industry – some for more than 25 years – we become part of your team enabling efficient, seamless crew change and logistics for your onsigners and offsigners.
Whether for individual seafarers, officers or ongoing marine crew rotations, we will navigate complex routings and itineraries and provide expert guidance to give you confidence as you make and manage travel arrangements – even as those plans change on the spur of the moment, as they so often do.
Strict Attention To Details
We make sure every seafarer gets to the vessel and home on time, every time. This requires that our consultants pay close attention to visa requirements. The nationality of many marine crew members means the most obvious routing may not be feasible but, we have the expertise to provide the most appropriate alternatives. We know the ropes and can help you anticipate these specific requirements, including visas and other documentation needed to eliminate costly delays. You require a dependable, cost-efficient service that meets your diverse needs, and we deliver accordingly.

Our specialised services are delivered from wholly owned global locations managed out of five regional hubs: UK/Europe, North America, South America, Africa and the Middle and Far East. Having all our services and tools integrated into one globally centralised system streamlines everything from policy compliance and 24/7/365 schedule changes to invoicing and refunds. It’s part of our commitment to simplify complex travel and help you optimise your global travel program.
