ACS teams-up with Save the Children

April 19 - Air Charter Service (ACS) recently chartered a B747-400 freighter from Nairobi, Kenya to Maputo, Mozambique, in conjunction with charity Save the Children.

The freighter was loaded with 100 tonnes of tarpaulins and ropes to build shelters for thousands of people left homeless by floods earlier in 2013.
 
The flooding led to a mass evacuation of the southern tip of Mozambique and according to Justin Lancaster, group cargo director at ACS, "When we received the call from Save the Children we found the best aircraft for the job as quickly as possible".
 
Lancaster added: "The aircraft positioned into Nairobi less than 15 hours after Save the Children gave the go-ahead. It was early morning when the aircraft landed and trucks carrying the cargo were still arriving at the airport at the time, so we started the pallet build before everything had been delivered."
 
Once loaded, the aircraft departed from Nairobi in the early afternoon and arrived into Maputo airport during the early evening.
 
Further information on Save the Children's work in Mozambique can be seen on its website (link below).
