Current Operations
Provision of Humanitarian Air Services in Sudan

This Special Operation (SO) is established to provide safe, efficient and effective air transport services to the humanitarian community in Sudan. Nearly 20 percent of Sudan’s population is in need of humanitarian assistance.1 However, continuing insecurity, vast distances, and poor transportation networks within the country severely limit access for aid workers to beneficiaries. Since 2004, the United Nations Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) has been the main means through which NGOs, UN agencies and the donor community travel to implement and monitor humanitarian projects, and the service is deemed necessary to continue in 2015.
