Delivering urgent support and aid in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, 01 October 2017:  Maximus Air, the Abu-Dhabi based aviation company and the largest all-cargo airline in the UAE, has provided vital humanitarian relief to Barbados in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, which caused catastrophic damage when it swept across the Caribbean and several US states in early September this year. The airline sent three relief flights to the area between the 15th and 21st September to provide relief cargo for those who were affected by the disaster.

Maximus Air team faced several logistical challenges during the relief mission, including vast geographical distance, short notice and a challenging time frame. Despite these challenges, the commercial team in coordination with the flight operation department and flight and loading crew successfully dispatched the company's Antonov AN-124-100 plane to Barbados and back three times within the space of a week. The AN-124 – one of the largest cargo planes in the world – is the ideal transport method for delivering outsize cargo over long distances in a timely manner at a short notice.

Mohamed Al Qassimi, CEO of Maximus Air, commented: “We are proud to have been able to put our logistical expertise to the service of those affected by Hurricane Irma. Since our inception we have held true to the belief that we have an important duty to help those in need around the world. We would like to thank our customers for their continued trust in us and our team for their determined commitment to supporting this cause, which helped to make our relief mission a success. Maximus Air is prepared to offer its assistance whenever duty calls, and we urge to other companies to embrace this responsibility.”

Since it was established in 2005, humanitarian and relief missions have been a key component of operations at Maximus Air, which has gained extensive expertise in managing logistical operations and is fully equipped to respond swiftly and effectively to disasters like Hurricane Irma.
