ACS aids Bahamians

Air Charter Service’s (ACS) Miami office filled an empty passenger flight to the Bahamas with emergency aid for those affected by Hurricane Dorian.

The company flew the cargo into the islands on an empty leg of a passenger flight with hundreds of kilos of supplies. 

Jordan Hinsch, private jets manager at ACS Miami, said: ”As a company we donate a lot of money to charity, and we arrange so many flights to disaster-hit regions, but always with other people’s cargo – so we just thought that we should be more hands-on this time.”

ACS Miami purchased and delivered stocks of bottled water, first aid kits, dry milk powder, rice, dog food, bars of soap, hand sanitiser, antibiotics, beans, tuna, canned fruit, toothpaste as well as baby and feminine products. “When we got there we helped offload the airplane and carry the supplies into the storage room at the airport, from where they would be best distributed,” said Hinsch.

Justin Bowman, ACS’s Group ceo, added: “The team in Miami really pulled together for this. I think the fact that it was so close to home and the hurricane almost hit them in Miami, meant they felt they wanted to help. As Jordan said, we always arrange relief charters on behalf of others, but it is nice to be able do our own bit.”
