ACS supports Mozambique relief efforts

Air Charter Service (ACS) has worked with various aid agencies and governments to transport almost 500 tons (453.6 tonnes) of humanitarian aid to Mozambique following cyclone Idai.

ACS chartered a variety of aircraft including AN-12s, IL-76s, B747-400s and B777s, to fly the cargo to the country.

In addition to cholera vaccines, water treatment facilities, mosquito nets and tarpaulins, ACS ensured 80 doctors were flown to Beira on a B737.

Dan Morgan-Evans, group director of cargo at ACS, said: “We even had one flight that was transporting an entire field hospital to the region, including X-ray machines and 4x4 vehicles.”

ACS’ offices in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa have all been involved in the relief efforts.
