Aid arrives in Haiti following devastating earthquake

Chapman Freeborn Airchartering’s worldwide offices have been extensively involved with the effort to get search and rescue teams and emergency relief supplies to thousands of people affected by last week’s devastating earthquake in Haiti.

In the last seven days the global aircraft charter specialist has overseen the delivery of hundreds of tons of relief cargo from the USA, Europe and the Middle East on behalf of international aid agencies.

In the aftermath of the earthquake aid has been flown into airports including Port au Prince (PAP), Haiti and Santo Domingo (SDQ), Dominican Republic on aircraft including L-100 Hercules, AN-12, IL-76, DC-8, MD11 and B747 freighters.

Operations on the ground in Port au Prince and Santo Domingo are being overseen by Chapman Freeborn logistics experts, who were immediately deployed in the wake of the disaster.

Chapman Freeborn’s passenger charter expertise was also utilised by American and European search and rescue organisations, with charters to Port au Prince and other regional airports on B737 and B767 aircraft.

The United Nations has appealed to Haitians for patience with the international aid effort. Food, water and medicines are now reaching parts of the capital Port-au-Prince, but relief efforts have been hampered by the scale of the devastation.

Speaking in Port-au-Prince, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon called the situation in Haiti “one of the worst humanitarian crises in decades”.
