LATAM Group activates the humanitarian relief plane to aid following Hurricane Dorian

LATAM Group has provided 35 tons of humanitarian aid, including medicines, medical instruments, sanitary and edible items, to the Bahamas on a humanitarian relief plane, in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian.

The B767-300BCF cargo plane was chartered to the capital of Nassau providing a full payload to transport the entire 35 tons of aid collected by the UPS Foundation, the company’s ally in this initiative.

Once in the field all the goods collected for the benefit of those affected were distributed among hospitals and foundations on different islands.

Thanks to the collaborative work between different teams and actors in the cargo transport industry, the Humanitarian Relief Plane initiative came to life, and had a positive impact on the affected areas.

The plane was activated in earlier circumstances for Chile’s forest fires, flooding in Peru, Hurricane Maria aftermath in Puerto Rico, and the earthquake in Ecuador, among other cases.
