Chapman Freeborn received the Air Cargo Charter Project of the Year Award at the 2023 Air Cargo News Awards held in London, UK, on Thursday 12th October.
Chapman Freeborn overcame limited capacities and secured special relief flight permits to deliver humanitarian aid to Turkey in response to the earthquakes in the region during February 2023.
“Speed is essential for humanitarian relief flights, and thanks to our specialist Emergency Response Team we secured a charter for one of our customers on the same day it was requested,” said Neil Dursley, Chief Commercial Officer, Chapman Freeborn.
“To have been recognised with the Air Cargo Charter Project of the Year Award speaks to the commitment and ingenuity of our teams, who go above-and-beyond to ensure aid is delivered to those who need it as quickly and efficiently as possible, providing a service that is unmatched in our sector.”
The judges highlighted Chapman Freeborn for navigating limited capacities by leveraging its longstanding relationships with operators in the region, and seamlessly coordinating with key stakeholders to ensure the timely delivery of aid.
