Tropic Ocean Airways, a local South Florida based airline, initiated relief efforts to those affected by Hurricane Joaquin in the Bahamas. The airline operates a fleet of Cessna Grand Caravan wheeled and seaplanes. The all-weather aircraft have high cargo capacity to accommodate supplies. The team has been working with organizations in both the Bahamas and South Florida to support their assistance plan.
Tropic Ocean Airways sent three aircraft to the Bahamas yesterday full of supplies such as water, baby food, and nonperishable items. They have some aircraft and crew based in George Town, Bahamas, while the others will run between Fort Lauderdale and other islands. The crew include ex-military personnel with relief experience from the earthquake and tsunami devastation in Japan in 2011 as well as other highly experienced pilots. The seaplanes will deliver supplies to the less accessible outer islands of the Bahamas in desperate need such as Rum Cay, Crooked Island, and Clarence Town Long Island.
The airline is utilizing its entire fleet this week to support the relief efforts in the Bahamas. Some organizations who have contributed thus far are Sheltair Aviation, Resorts World Bimini, Jet Aviation in Nassau, [Strachan’s Aviation in George Town, Bahamas, as well as generous individuals who are friends and guests of Tropic Ocean Airways. Items are still being accepted. Please contact the travel team at Tropic Ocean Airways reservations(at)flytropic(dot)com or 1-800-767-0897 for more information.
