Current Operations
Provision of Humanitarian Air Services in Chad

This Special Operation (SO) is established to provide safe, effective and efficient air transport services to the humanitarian community in Chad. The need for humanitarian assistance in Chad remains steadily high. However, vast distances, poor transportation networks and insecurity limit access for aid workers to beneficiaries. The United Nations Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) is therefore crucial to facilitate access to beneficiaries and implementation sites for NGOs, UN agencies, donor organizations and diplomatic missions. With operational bases in N’Djamena, Abeche and Gozbeida UNHAS will continue to provide air services to 19 regular destinations within Chad with a fleet of three fixed wing aircraft.
