Chapman Freeborn helps organise first aid flight for Syrian refugees
Chapman Freeborn Airchartering has worked in cooperation with the German charity Luftfahrt ohne Grenzen (Wings of Help) to organise the first aid flight for Syrian refugees fleeing across the border into Turkey.
The global aircraft charter specialist assisted Wings of Help in delivering 41 tons of relief cargo from Frankfurt in Germany to Adana in southern Turkey on behalf of the Turkish Red Crescent.
Chapman Freeborn chartered an A300 freighter for the operation and coordinated the necessary overflight and landing permits.
The aircraft departed Frankfurt Airport at Wednesday 8 August at 1pm local time and arrived in Adana a few hours later to deliver the consignment of food, tents, clothes and blankets.
The flight was accompanied personally by Frank Franke, president of Wings of Help (above left) and Michael Roll of Chapman Freeborn Germany (above right)..
Upon arrival the supplies were handed over to representatives of the Turkish Red Crescent, who coordinated the distribution in the camps.
