Air Partner spearheads hurricane relief effort

[ September 28, 2018   //   ]

Charter firm Air Partner swung into action on 9 September when it was asked by emergency response specialist Radiant Global Logistics to deliver supplies to the US Pacific island of Guam ahead of Typhoon Mangkhut. Antonov Airlines’ giant AN-225 and AN-124 aircraft moved urgent relief supplies including water and ready to eat meals.

Volga-Dnepr Airlines also positioned one of its An-124-100 ready to load a shipment of 64 tons of food supplies and bottled water – completed in just three hours, ensuring it was ready to depart to Guam as soon as the storm had passed the island.
