Air Partner has transported 90 tonnes of aid from Belgium to the Central African Republic to support the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA).

Air Partner chartered a Boeing 747 Freighter from Liege Airport to fly the supplies to M’Poko International Airport in Bangui, the capital of the Central African Republic. The aid was flown on behalf of Ecolog International to support the MINUSCA project, which is concerned with security, humanitarian, human rights and political crisis in the region.

Air Partner director of freight, Richard Smith says: “We are delighted that we were able to leverage our extensive experience of arranging time-critical operations to logistically challenging destinations in support of the MINUSCA project.”

The charter company says Bangui is a very challenging airport because of limited scheduled services and a lack of fuel supplies. It says despite this, the operation ran to time and plan. The shipment included 50 tonnes of frozen food requiring temperature sensitive storage.

Smith continues: “In circumstances such as these, time is of the essence and ensuring food supplies reach those in need as quickly as possible is our top priority.”
