Nepal Earthquake

MAF Fishtail Collaboration goes beyond a year

The collaboration of MAF International, a Christian Organization that flies in the most isolated communities of the world to support the extremely suffering mass of people, & the Fishtail Air, a leading Helicopter Operators of Nepal has been a year.

After the devastating quake that struck Central Nepal in early 2015, these two organizations began their collaboration under Earthquake Relief Campaign in Nepal. During one year collaboration, MAF & Fishtail Air undertook humanitarian tasks to several isolated quake affected villages. Basic needs like food & water, temporary settlements, Medicine supplies & clothes were delivered to these villages where roadways had no links at all. Moreover, the rescue & evacuation of people trapped in the debris of the quake were also done at large scale.

Fishtail Air would like to congratulate all the personals directly & indirectly related to yearlong collaboration of MAF & Fishtail Air. We also hope the continuity of collaboration that has served the humankind in extreme crisis.

Working together with our helicopters and their disaster expertise, we are in ideal position to get the right people to the right places at the right time to help the people of Nepal recover from this devastating natural disaster.

The service we are offering is aimed at enabling the humanitarian aid community to access affected vulnerable populations in hard-to-reach areas currently not accessible by road or the larger helicopters. The service is primarily for passengers and limited cargo and is available on whole aircraft charter or a shuttle basis (pay for seat) and rates will depend on a number of factors although significant subsidies will be available to all humanitarian agencies.
