Body Text: 

This Operation has been modified and extended in time until 31 March 2011 as per Budget revision 1 (see below). 

This WFP /United Nations Humanitarian Air Services (UNHAS) special operation is established to facilitate the earthquake response through air transportation of humanitarian personnel, food, medicines and other relief items on behalf of the humanitarian community, to the areas rendered inaccessible by surface transport.

Through this operation, WFP will manage six aircraft; four fixed-wing aircraft and two heavy-lift helicopters based either in Haiti or in Dominican Republic. A staging area will be established in Dominican Republic to circumvent congestion in Port-au-Prince airport and to ensure organized flow of supplies according to priorities.
