Ground Transportation

    When and where you need us.

    A perfectly planned and executed mission can be tarnished if the ground transportation doesn’t meet passenger or crew expectations. Late arrivals, the wrong size vehicle, uninformed drivers, and bad information are all risks that can adversely impact mission success – and create unnecessary stress. Universal Private Transport eliminates these issues by providing you with the ability to track reservations, changes, confirmations, driver details and movements, in one centralized location. The result – a great ground transportation experience with no surprises.

    Universal Private Transport is the new global ground transportation service joint venture between Universal Weather and Aviation, Inc. and its long-time security partner, FAM International.  Working in conjunction with your Universal® Trip Support team, you can feel confident that your ground transportation experience will live up to your stakeholders’ expectations. You’ll get the right vehicle, professional and courteous drivers, and clear communications – and all through licensed and insured providers with experience in crew and VIP ground transportation.
