MNG Airlines provides earthquake aid to Turkey and Syria

MNG Airlines, a global logistics provider and e-commerce enabler, is providing ground transport, logistics and air cargo services to aid victims of the devastating February 6th earthquakes. 

MNGA has mobilized a fleet of cargo trucks to support the Turkish Ministry of Interior Department of Disaster and Emergency Management to deliver supplies from Istanbul directly to Malatya and Gaziantep. Starting on February 7th, the MNGA’s trucks began delivering emergency aid to the region. On February 8th, MNG Airlines volunteered an A300-600 aircraft to transport relief goods including 44 tons of supplies donated by MNG Airlines staff. After the first flight, MNGA operated 4 flights to Malatya and 2 flights to Adana to provide transportation for donations from BeลŸiktaลŸ JK, the Turkish Pharmacists’ Association and other donors.

MNG Airlines has also partnered with the Turkish Red Crescent to collect and transport emergency donations from across Europe to Malatya and Adana. Starting on February 9th, and working alongside international embassies and consulate staff, airport staff and our ground handling partner DNATA CGN, MNG Airlines loaded emergency relief donations at the Cologne, Amsterdam, and Charles de Gaulle airports for transport to Istanbul Airport. MNG Airlines’ collaboration with the Red Crescent is ongoing, and as of today, MNG Airlines has transported 240 tons of aid.

On February 8th, 16th and 23rd, MNG Airlines operated an A300-600 cargo plane on behalf of the World Health Organization (“WHO”) to transport 120 tons of emergency medical kits from Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai to Istanbul, where the WHO’s emergency response teams began transporting the kits to areas most in need. On February 18th, MNG Airlines operated an A300-600 cargo plane on behalf of UNICEF to transport 37 tons of relief goods.

MNG Airlines and Golden Falcon Acquisition Corporation stand with friends, family, and fellow Turkish citizens whose lives have been impacted by the earthquakes, and will continue supporting our disaster relief and recovery partners during this difficult time.
