We are the experts on transporting flames on aircraft. Our Olympic Flame Lamps have carried the Olympic Flame and the Holy Fire (Святой огонь, Sfânt foc) on commercial and military aircraft for over 30 years .

The Holy Fire is transported by plane to many Orthodox Communities around the the world during the Easter period each year in the same type of modified lamp.
