An Airline Flying Places You Don’t Want to Go

Three Air Serv planes flying over the waters of the Caribbean this week have as their unique mission the movement of relief supplies and workers to and from the hurricane ravaged islands. A fourth plane has recently gone from the tragedy of Haiti to the danger of Afghanistan. With flight paths unlike any air service of the world, the planes of Air Serv International (http://www.airserv.org/) have been in harm’s way for 20 years (the anniversary celebrated by the humanitarian air service last Thursday). Air Serv flew the first non-governmental flight into Baghdad after the major conflict ended, and has since flown released hostages to safety. It’s a unique service that the humanitarian community relies on to continue its work.
