Air Charter Service works on Indonesia relief efforts
26 / 10 / 2018
Air Charter Service’s global offices have been sourcing aircraft to carry relief goods to Indonesia since the earthquake and tsunami struck on September 28.
“We have been flying in different types of much needed aid, such as shelter kits and water purifying tablets on a variety of aircraft types, including Antonov AN-12s, Boeing B757s and B777s,” said Dan Morgan-Evans, group cargo director.
“We have flown in other relief goods from the Middle East and Europe – in total, seven of our offices have arranged more than 20 charters to the region carrying a total of just over 600 tonnes.”
He explained that a lot of aid supplies are stockpiled in Malaysia and the surrounding area so, once the aircraft were sourced, many of the operations could be swiftly carried out.
