Maximus Air Cargo has been commissioned to fly humanitarian aid to conflict-ridden Sudan. The Abu Dhabi-headquartered heavy lifter will carry about 4,000 tonnes of relief supplies from Khartoum over the next six months, including food, shelters, medicine and other relief supplies. The mission is funded by the UAE government as a gift to Sudan’s Humanitarian Aid Commission. Maximus will dedicate one special purpose Lockheed Hercules L382G aircraft to the operation along with 12 crew and support staff who will be based in Khartoum for the period. Supplies will be airlifted from there to Geneina, Nyala, Malakal, Juba, Al Fasher, and Al Obeid. The Hercules will carry about 13.6 tonnes per flight, beginning with about 10 deliveries a month from November and rising to two a day as the mission gathers momentum.
