Air Charter Service gears up to aid Hurricane Dorian victims
Sept 5, 2019: Air Charter Service (ACS) flew medical aid to the afflicted regions in the East Coast of the United States, in order to help the victims of the tropical cyclone Hurricane Dorian.
The charter specialist has also arranged charters to move than 250 people out of the path of the storm so far, initially many from the Bahamas, and then more and more from Florida.
The 185mph winds have left the Bahamas devastated and now threaten to sweep up the southern Atlantic Seaboard.
Dorian has already caused widespread damage – at least seven people are known to have died in the Bahamas, as well as tens of thousands of homes being destroyed.
Jordan Hinsch, Private Jets director of ACS’s Florida office said: “They have been booking private jets or larger aircraft to get out of the way of the exceptionally high winds. Now we are experiencing some calls for helicopters to use in aerial surveillance, as well as repatriation as islanders return to their homes to assess the damage left behind. Our cargo division has also been busy, having sent in medical supplies to the region already and we are currently receiving enquiries to fly in and further supplies to the Bahamas, now that the storm has passed.”
