Humanitarian and Relief – Air Cargo Charter Service
In case of disasters such as earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, storms, typhoons, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, charters are the only effective option to deliver support to the disaster-stricken area. But such a catastrophe is usually followed by other invading problems such as air traffic administration issues, aircraft handling problems and finding the most suitable cargo aircraft.
DWC has a wealth of experience in providing humanitarian relief. We have been an active air cargo partner at Nepal earthquake of April 2015 and Ebola outbreak, amongst others. Our network of thousands of aircraft and relationships enables us to find the most suitable aircraft and to organize for all the legal and statutory clearances.

case study: Saving Lives in Times of Calamities
Background: A natural disaster or political conflict can cause loss of life or damage to property. Typically, this incurs economic damage, the severity of which depends on the affected population’s ability to recover and on available infrastructure. When such calamities strike, DWC works with various NGO’s to aid the victims through delivering humanitarian aid at a day’s notice. We received several projects to deliver humanitarian aid. Here is a description of what our team has typically done.
Solution: Upon receiving the request, our team has contacted our preferred partners for the availability of aircraft, based on the distance and types of goods to be transported. All such projects were delivered within 48 hours of the request. In 2017, together with a United Nations mission, we delivered over 66 tons of high energy biscuits and medicines to the distressed shelters of Somalia using a B727-200 aircraft. In 2018, over 100 tons of aid relief were transported from Dubai to Angola on an IL76 aircraft that helped more than 11,000 people fleeing the Congo due to political conflict. That same year, DWC delivered over 300 metric tons of aid on 5 flights for HM Mohammed VI of Morocco to East Africa using an IL76 aircraft.
