Humanitarian and Relief

Since early 2000 Aviacon has been a major airlift supplier for humanitarian agencies and the UN peacekeepers providing ad-hoc charters, as well as long-term solutions for a number of UN organizations, including the World Food Programme (WFP), Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO), Humanitarian Response Depot (UNHRD) and the Children’s Fund (UNICEF).


Over the years Aviacon has been many times involved in ad hoc and large-scale humanitarian relief flight operations for the governments, international NGOs and other aid providers.


As from 2004 to 2007, one of Aviacon’s Ilyushin-76 aircraft was permanently based at the UN logistics base (UNLB) in Brindisi, Italy, operating under the UN Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) banner.


The aircraft was on permanent standby either in Brindisi or within 48 hours of “reactivation” depending on demand. Painted in the full UN livery and operated under Aviacon callsign, it has flown over 2400 hours in support of humanitarian activities worldwide.


In 2011-12, 2016-2017 Aviacon’s IL76s were contracted by the UN Mission in Democratic Republic of Congo (MONUSCO) through the UN Procurement Division.


Aviacon’s fleet was positioned in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). As part of the UN fleet it provided airlift logistic support for election campaigns of 2011 and 2016. We carried 1,116 tonnes of election material to all major cities of the country (Gbadolite, Mbandaka, Lubumbashi, Gemena, Kananga, Kindu etc.
