— Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) - May 2007
MSF-France started its reconstructive surgical program for Iraqi victims of violence early 2006 in Amman. The objective of the program is to treat trauma non urgent cases of orthopedic, plastic and maxillo-facial injuries. The first group of patients where flown in to Amman with Air Serv on August 3, 2006 and since that day we have been flying our patients with Air Serv from Baghdad and Erbil. We have so far treated around 200 patients in 9 months and our target is to reach this figure per month instead of nine…thank you Air Serv for being part of our mission.

— NGO Coordination Committee in Iraq (NCCI) - May 17, 2007
Air Serv International pioneered NGO assistance in Iraq in April 2003 with one of the first civilian air transportation opportunities between Amman and Baghdad, and since tailored their air support for NGOs.
Indeed, with the difficult humanitarian access in Iraq and the current fragmentation of the country, connecting the main cities in the country where NGOs are active and linking them with Amman, where most of the international community is based, is vital for the delivery of assistance by the humanitarian community.
In this regard, the NGO Coordination Committee in Iraq – NCCI – representing the majority of the international NGOs active in Iraq and a pool of relevant Iraqi NGOs has a debt of gratitude to Air Serv International for its professional support to Iraqis.

— WFP UNHAS Mozambique - May 3, 2007
It gives me great pleasure as Chief of Air Transport Operations for WFP UNHAS Mozambique to thank you and your staff in Beira for the assistance given to UNHAS during the recent Mozambique SO 10591.0.
Throughout our stay, nothing was too much in the way your staff provided support to us. This was by way of striving for excellence in the professional support rendered. The information and assistance provided to both UNHAS and the visiting AS Air Force, as part of the Joint Air Support Operation to the INGC in the recent flood relief action, was much appreciated.
A special word of thanks to Andre, your Aircraft Engineer, and Paula, your Ops Manager. They were instrumental and worked directly with us in solving issues. We, as visitors, would have had a major problem in resolving them, had they not been so professional in their approach to assisting us.
Having had to call on your hangar on numerous occasions, I was very impressed with your operation in Beira. Having been in aviation for the past 38 years, it was easy to recognise a professional and well run operation. Good luck in your endeavours and the successful accomplishment of Air Serv’s all important mission in Mozambique!
