Transporting humanitarian aid to Gaza

Air Partner's cargo division, a global full-service logistics provider, completed a cargo operation to transport 85-90 t of humanitarian aid per flight for people in Gaza, including temporary shelters.


The operation involved three flights using a 747-400 aircraft. Two of the flights took off from Liege airport in Belgium and the third flight left from Nairobi airport in Kenya, all bound for Larnaca International Airport (LCA) in Cyprus. The operation successfully delivered over 280 t of relief items to the region.


Due to the ongoing conflict and the closed borders, the aid was flown to Cyprus to be transported via sea to the floating pier constructed off the coast of Gaza. The primary challenge was that the cargo had to palletised, which meant that the aircraft reached its weight capacity before its volume limit. (cj)
