vassing.com – The Secret Life of The Onboard Courier is owned by Morten Vassing and online since February, 2000.
Morten is a Frequent Flyer, Travel Enthusiast and Certified Onboard Courier who is based near Copenhagen International Airport, CPH. Join Morten Vassing as he peels off the cloak and sheets covering the secretive world of the Onboard Courier whom inconspicuously could be sitting next to you on that United flight to Miami during an ongoing OBC Mission.
Morten Vassing is originally trained as a journalist from The Danish School of Journalism (DJH Class of 1999) and The E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University (on an Europe In The World EU Scholarship 1999) and he has given this website numerous updates and flavors over the years but it is today a personal blog and site focused on everything dealing with modern air travel as an Onboard Courier on and off OBC Missions around the world.
The site will give you insights about what it’s like to travel the world on easy and sometimes very difficult and challenging OBC Missions.
Morten Vassing is of course contractually prevented from making public any information what so ever related to the actual shipment and contents being freighted by hand around the globe nor ID’ing consignor and consignee but rather give a unique look into a world of a very small brotherhood of couriers who make the world go round with much needed supplies for the airline industry, automotive industry, maritime and shipping industries, robotics industry, fashion industry, medical and medico industries and much, much more.
Along the way, Morten will try to keep you guys updated on every OBC Mission and the legs of the trip and the different Airport Terminals and Lounges he visits as a little personal travel blog with unique information, photos and videos.
As time permits Morten Vassing plans to retrospectively post information about the two dozens of already successfully completed OBC Missions around the world.
Also, Morten will post his own reviews and tests of everything related to Air Travel, Airports, Lounges, Fast Track, the different Aircrafts and Travel Classes along with every little Accessory and Gadget needed for a smooth trip whether you’re an Onboard Courier and just traveling for Business or Pleasure.
