2011 - WFP Aviation Review

Throughout 2011, with a robust fleet of aircraft, WFP Aviation remained ready to help humanitarian assistance reach millions of people affected by the consequences of war, natural disasters, and other challenging circumstances in remote and insecure areas such as in Afghanistan, Central African Republic (CAR), Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Ethiopia, Niger, Somalia, Sudan, Iraq and Yemen. In addition to providing on-going air services to ensure that humanitarian assistance can reach fragile communities, WFP Aviation responded to numerous complicated and challenging emergencies around the world, including in the Horn of Africa and Libya. It is estimated that 80 percent of global humanitarian transportation in 2011 was provided by WFP Aviation.
