Service Corporation International (NYSE: SCI), North America’s largest provider of funeral, cremation, and cemetery services, recently selected Eagle’s Wings Air (EWA) to coordinate and manage the air transportation of human remains for their more than 2,000 locations nationwide.

According to Julian Davis, Director of Business Support Services, the “transient nature” of today’s society led the company to call on Eagle’s Wings Air for its specialized services. “Our staff has been coordinating the air transportation of the deceased for thousands of our client families each year. It’s a critical task, but it’s complicated and demands attention to detail.”

The unique service model for assuring the dependable transportation of human remains was created by fourth-generation funeral director David McComb and his business partner Frank Kaiser, who is an airline logistics professional with experience in shipping specialized cargo all over the world. The combination of logistical skill and a strong funeral service background led to a business that focuses on the actual transportation process from tender to arrival.

Eagle’s Wings Air’s president & CEO, Frank Kaiser comments, “Eagle’s Wings Air was founded four years ago with a simple philosophy – there is nothing more important in the world of air logistics than properly managing the transportation of the deceased. My staff and I take this mission very seriously, and we are honored by the trust SCI has placed in us.”

SCI selected Eagle’s Wings Air specifically to arrange, coordinate, and monitor the transportation of the deceased because of the company’s deep understanding of the airline industry, and the proprietary software they utilize to find the best itinerary and make the necessary reservations.

Eagle’s Wings Air proactively monitors the status of transport from start to finish, delivering time-savings and peace-of-mind to their funeral service clients.

Funeral Homes are Struggling to Keep Their Doors Open

Ryan Thogmartin - August 13, 2017

This is a topic and conversation that does not get talked about or covered enough. We all want to put the blame on cremation and ignore the fact that many of the issues facing funeral homes aren't because families choose cremation but because of bad business decisions of many funeral directors who don't want to change or accept cremation.
