At OMNI, we believe that people make the difference. It is the quality of our professionals that allows us to maintain the ethical essence of our business and offer our clients an excellent service, with the focus on safety.
OMNI Táxi Aéreo S.A. was founded in December 2000, on the principles of Safety, Ethics, Environment, Innovation and Social Responsibility. These values are transported in every aircraft that takes off and are the compass which directs the company.
We offer services to the largest companies in the oil sector, especially to Petrobras, and offer all our clients solutions for air transport, offshore and onshore, anywhere in Brazil, including external cargo and aeromedical transport.
In 2009, we became the first air taxi company in Brazil to receive the ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and NBR 16001 certificates. Furthermore, rigorous auditing programs have confirmed the quality of OMNI’s services, in meeting the needs of clients, flight operation and aircraft maintenance (for which we received legal approval under the RBAC 145).
We are a part of the OMNI Helicopters International group (OHI), a financial holding based in Portugal which administers fleets and investments in helicopter operators, contributing to the development of the oil and gas sector and to global emergency medical transport.
