ACS offers further assistance in the wake of Dorian

Broker Air Charter Service (ACS) has offered further assistance to those affected by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas by filling the space of an empty passenger aircraft with relief goods.

ACS’s Miami office purchased the supplies and donated the aid to those stricken by the hurricane. The broker used the capacity available on the empty leg of a KingAir 100 passenger flight to the Caribbean islands.

Jordan Hinsch, private jets manager of ACS Miami, informed: “Myself and a colleague flew down to Great Harbour Cay on the KingAir 100.

“As a company we donate a lot of money to charity, and we arrange so many flights to disaster-hit regions, but always with other people’s cargo – so we just thought that we should be more hands-on this time.

“On the flight we took stocks of bottled water, first aid kits, dry milk powder, rice, dog food, bars of soap, hand sanitizer, antibiotics, beans, tuna, canned fruit, toothpaste as well as baby and feminine products.”

Justin Bowman, ACS’s Group CEO, added: “The team in Miami really pulled together for this. I think the fact that it was so close to home and the hurricane almost hit them in Miami, meant they felt they wanted to help.”
