Air Partner’s Global Cargo Division, the global full-service logistics provider, delivered humanitarian medical aid to Afghanistan following the powerful earthquakes which struck the country earlier this month.
The country experienced three earthquakes in short succession which has resulted in a death toll that now surpasses over 2,000 lives lost. The latest earthquake, which struck on the 15 October, registered a magnitude of 6.3 and has led to the collapse of thousands of houses and villages.
On 22 October, Air Partner delivered 82 tonnes of emergency relief from Copenhagen to Kabul within the same day.
The humanitarian aid was delivered using a Boeing B747F, an aircraft renowned for its unique capacity to handle heavy cargo loads, making it one of the few aircraft capable of executing such a large undertaking with precision and efficiency.
Air Partner’s experience in emergency global cargo brokering for humanitarian operations guarantees vigilant planning, logistics co-ordination and rapid mobilisation of aircraft and permits to ensure aid is delivered to areas impacted by catastrophic damage quickly and safely.
Pierre Van Der Stichele, VP of Global Charter at Air Partner, commented: “Humanitarian operations are of the upmost importance for our cargo division, epitomising our unwavering commitment to delivering critical aid swiftly and efficiently to those in devastating situations.
“With Air Partner’s global network of charter services, logistics experts and 24/7 support team, we remain on hand to support those in need.”
