01 Apr Air Serv aircraft arrives in Jordan for Iraq humanitarian response
On March 28, an Air Serv King Air aircraft and crew arrived in Amman, Jordan, ready to respond to the humanitarian needs in Iraq following the current conflict. An Antonov AN-12 cargo aircraft is positioned in Bahrain, and a second Air Serv King Air will be in Kuwait a week from now.
For the past several months, working primarily with the US Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance, Care, Mercy Corps, Save the Children, International Rescue Committee, International Medical Corps, and the International Office for Migration, Air Serv prepared to provide assistance to the Iraqi people and the humanitarian agencies that will need safe, secure transport of relief workers, emergency relief materials, food, and medicines throughout the region. Air Serv established offices and operating permissions in both Jordan and Kuwait, and will begin flight operations under a grant from USAID’s Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance.
