Air Partner Cargo transports time-critical humanitarian relief to Gaza

Air Partner’s Cargo Division, a global leading full-service logistics provider, completed a cargo operation to transport 92 tonnes of humanitarian relief for people in Gaza, including blankets, fleeces and hygiene kits.

The operation was carried out with three flights across three days using an A300F aircraft from Brindisi (BDS) airport in Italy to Al Arish (AAC) airport in Egypt, carrying a total of over 39,000 relief items.

Organising flights to and from Al Arish airport can present operational challenges due to it being a small fuel storage facility military airport.

With only one fuelling truck available, military flights are prioritised for fuel uplift leading to civilian flights often being subjected to refuelling delays.

Despite such potential challenges which are intensified during a time of conflict, Air Partner’s experienced cargo team was able to arrange refuelling and delivery of relief successfully and on time.

Pierre Van Der Stichele, VP of Global Cargo at Air Partner, commented, “We take immense pride at Air Partner in our ability to successfully deliver time-critical, lifesaving cargo.

“Our commitment to meticulous planning, our wealth of global experience and our 24/7 support team allows us to navigate any complex challenges that may arise and make a positive impact where it matters most.”
