Chapman Freeborn delivers outsize cargo to Afghanistan

Chapman Freeborn Aviation Services has completed the air transportation of 30 portable housing units from Ras al-Khaimah, UAE, to Kabul, Afghanistan in support of relief projects in the Yakatoot area, east of the capital.

The global aircraft charter specialist's Dubai office coordinated five AN-124 charters on behalf of the US Embassy in Kabul, transporting six 40ft housing containers on each rotation.

Each housing unit comes ready-constructed with bedrooms and basic amenities, and the new facilities will be put to use by the World Health Organisation and other specialised agencies of the United Nations.

Lloyd D'Souza, cargo charter specialist at Chapman Freeborn's Dubai office, said:

"This was a challenging project which required coordination between our Dubai office, our operations team and staff at Ras al-Khaimah airport to ensure the units were delivered in a timely fashion.

"I am pleased that the assignment gave us the chance to demonstrate why we have built a strong reputation for excellent service offering trusted and reliable charter solutions for our global clients.
