The Voyager aircraft are owned by AirTanker Limited (ATr) who are contracted through the Voyager PFI to provide the Voyager Air to Air Refuelling and Air Transport services to the Ministry of Defence (MOD). Therefore, this work was contracted directly with ATr against the PFI contract. ATr has sub-contracted elements of the work taking account of mandatory aircraft certification, regulatory and licencing requirements. MOD worked closely with ATr to ensure that tenders were only sought from approved suppliers and that competitive tenders received were assessed for cost and deliverability, and where possible, benchmarked against similar work performed previously.
