Provision of Humanitarian Air Services in Niger

This Special Operation (SO) is established to provide safe, reliable, effective and efficient air transport services to the humanitarian community in Niger in 2015.
Insecurity and poor infrastructure make land transportation impracticable for prompt implementation of humanitarian projects in Niger. As commercial airlines present in
the country do not meet international standards, the United Nations Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) is vital for Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), United
Nations (UN) agencies, donor representatives and Government counterparts to access project implementation sites. In 2015, UNHAS will provide services for
approximately 165 humanitarian actors to at least eight destinations with a fleet of two aircraft.
