Panalpina flies third mercy flight

[ November 27, 2015   //   ]

UNICEF and Panalpina have joined forces for the third year in a row to fly much-needed medical material to African children. A cargo aircraft chartered by the forwarder landed in Burundi with 70 tons on board in the early hours of 27 November.

Last year, Panalpina supported the fight against Ebola by flying life-saving humanitarian aid to Sierra Leon and in 2013, it brought desperately needed goods to the Central African Republic.

The relief flights were started in 2013 in lieu of the company’s traditional Christmas gifts for customers and employees.
