What airlines are being used for the relief/aid flights to Yangon? name of airline, type of aircraft and route flown (include technical stop). I saw a news article in USA Today showing a cargo jet being loaded in Brindisi (Italy) but did not say what airline or aircraft. Thanks in advance for the data.

On the clips shown on various news channels there was a Jade Cargo 744F flight delivering Chinese aid and a Thai A300 landing in Rangoon. They also showed a Lao Airlines AN-24 or MA60 type of aircraft unloading aid.

Myanmar is a closed, military run country. I don't think they have been too open with their arms for help just yet. I saw on the news last night the Gov't was hording all the donated supplies and not handing them out to those in need. Very sad....

I am assuming Jade Cargo 744F flew Beijing-Yangon?? Anyone confirm this?

The UN Joint Logistics Center (UNJLC) and the UN Humanitarian Response Depot (UNHRD), are in charge of co-ordinating relief transport into RGN and they have enough of a hard time trying to get a handle on everything going in that they do not publish a public schedules of expected flights.

From their coordination meeting earlier this Saturday, it resorts that the Thai A310 flew in relief from the IFRC, the Italian air force is sending an A310 from BDS (where one of the UNHRD depots is located), the French government is sending a plane tomorrow (type unknown, but it will have a 45t payload) and the Laos Airlines AN-24 brought in equipment for the WFP's field office (yes, not all these flights carry emergency supplies, everything has to be flown in in a disaster area, including the desks, the phones and the staplers of the on-site coordinators).

Not a relief flight per say, but PG is donating 5t worth of cargo space for relief supplies on all its scheduled flights into RGN.

Unless I missed something, the UNJCL wasn't aware of a Jade Cargo flight coming in. It doesn't mean it didn't happen, not all aid has to be coordinated through the UN, of course, it probably was a donation straight from the Chinese government to the Myanmar dictatorship, friends helping friends in need.



I've got $h*t to do

The news channels here showed a picture of it taxing after landing, and then being unloaded by hand by troops who hadd to run all the way up the stairs,grab a box, then run back down. They didn't seem prepared.
