Maximus completes 3 relief flights

Dubai, September 30, 2010

Maximus Air Cargo, the UAE’s largest all-cargo airline, has completed the three relief flights which it gifted to the Red Crescent Authority’s (RCA) recent telethon.

The airline’s Ilyushin-76TD heavyweight airlifter undertook three mercy flights last week on behalf of the Red Crescent Authority carrying urgent relief goods to assist the 23 million who have been struck by unprecedented flooding in Pakistan.

The three gifted flights were dispatched to Peshawar, capital of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa; Multan in the Punjab Province; and Quetta, the capital of the Balochistan Province.

The aircraft carried goods that had been identified by the National Disaster Management Authority in Pakistan as goods of immediate and urgent need. These included tents, blankets and drinking supplies.

“We are pleased that as the UAE’s largest all air cargo airline, we could contribute with our nation to helping those in need in Pakistan,” said Fathi Buhazza, president and CEO of Maximus Air Cargo and founder of Care by Air.

“We believe that business has a role to contribute to society and I encourage other companies to join us in embracing this responsibility.” – TradeArabia News Service
