It seeks to facilitate safe, reliable and predictable air transport services to enable humanitarian actors and donors to undertake projects, supervise and monitor activities. The air operation has been operational in the country since 2008 and is a critical enabler of the humanitarian response across the country.
This SO will maintain the current capacity of aircraft fleet and the flexibility to adjust the fleet if needs decrease. The aircraft fleet will include four fixed-wing aircraft and one helicopter in East DRC as well as two fixed-wing aircraft based in Kinshasa.
