Maximus Air Cargo, a part of Abu Dhabi Aviation Group has pledged three free-of-charge cargo flights to Pakistan during the UAE Telethon for Pakistan.

The three cargo flights will depart for Pakistan over the next two weeks and will carry approximately 150 tonnes of vital supplies. These are likely to include tents, blankets and drinking supplies for those hit by what is called the worst flooding in Pakistan in nearly a century. At least 23 million people in Pakistan have now been affected overall, with six million made homeless and eight million in urgent need of humanitarian assistance.

Maximus has extensive experience in humanitarian assistance having operated numerous flights across the globe to areas hit by disaster including Aceh and earthquake torn Sumatra and Haiti. The airline's expertise, safety standards, and fleet, which includes heavyweight cargo planes well equipped to land in difficult conditions, means that it will offer invaluable help on behalf of the UAE Telethon.

The UAE Telethon, which was launched for three days by the Red Crescent, has received tremendous response to help Pakistani people hit by the extensive flooding. The campaign, which ran across national media, was held under the directives of President of UAE, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

Commenting on the pledge Fathi H Buhazza, President and CEO of Maximus Air Cargo and Founder of Care by Air said "I congratulate the honourable work of the UAE Telethon. It is something the UAE can be proud of. Maximus is pleased to make this offer - it is something we wanted to do very much and most importantly to do it on behalf of the UAE." – Emirates News Agency, WAM
