Air Partner flies aid to Juba

Over the course of three weeks, Air Partner chartered 18 flights from the USA to deliver more than 400 tonnes of non-perishable food to Juba in South Sudan.

Eight Boeing 747s and ten Ilyushin IL-76s were used to transport the large pallets from the USA via Entebbe in Uganda.

Jack Burt, vice president of Air Partner’s US cargo division, said: “In order to ensure that every aspect of this project was as seamless as possible, members of our freight team were stationed on the ground at Entebbe Airport to provide expert supervision. With the current prolonged conflict and economic instability in South Sudan, we are fortunate to be able to help deliver such an important commodity that can have a direct impact on the people of the region.”
