About Aviation Sans Frontières (Aviation Without Borders)

Since 1980, Aviation Sans Frontières has been deploying the resources and skills of the aeronautical world at the service of humanitarian aid. As a recognized Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) of public utility, it provides essential logistical support to hundreds of humanitarian actors by guaranteeing the delivery of emergency aid and the transport or people escort around the world. Thanks to its 800 volunteers, Aviation Sans Frontières responds to some 20 humanitarian requests every day.

The association has its own aircrafts – 2 Cessna Caravans based in Africa, well known for their ability to operate in difficult conditions. It is also the first NGO to hold a European Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) like any certified airline.
