CHF-DMA-0489-035 "Humanitarian Air Service in support of relief operations in Somalia" - 995,100$                                              

The lack of a safe, secure and efficient commercial alternative endorsed by the United Nations to fly humanitarian personnel into and across Somalia,  UNHAS services are critical to reach those locations safely and to provide high standard of aviation security on the ground. The ongoing violence in Somalia continues to displace hundreds of thousands of Somalis, especially from the capital Mogadishu. The country is mired in one of the worst and most complex humanitarian emergencies in the world with an estimated  3.2 million of the country’s 7.5 million people (UNDP, 2005) in need of emergency livelihood and life saving assistance (FSNAU March 2010). Given the fluid security environment inside Somalia, UNHAS' safe and reliable air-bridge services at a maximum rate of US$ 500 for each ticket per passenger, makes it critical for humanitarian personnel from UN and NGOs to implement and closely monitor life saving projects in Somalia.The UNHAS consultation process for the air-bridge operation is  the already established UNHAS User Group composed of representatives of UN and NGOs, that act as decision makers at the monthly meetings.

Objective:  To provide of air access to Humanitarian Community operating in Somalia

  • Humanitarian access in Somalia by air for life-saving assistance in areas that operationally secure is maintained                                                                                                                                        
  • Timely security and medical evacuation services to the humanitarian community is guaranteed
  • Subsidised air tickets for the humanitarian personnel are maintained
