Support our colleagues in the Caribbean
14 September 2017
Dear Friends and Colleagues of Luxaviation Group,
As we have reported before, Hurricane Irma has left the Caribbean and our facility there in pieces.
Many of you have already expressed your willingness to support our colleagues and their families, with donations and help via the YouCaring.com campaign for our Luxaviation/ExecuJet employees in need in St Maarten. Link: HERE
We have now also decided to support our teams on the ground by sending a Bombardier Challenger 300 captained by Robert Fisch carrying both staff and supplies in order to assist with helping to have the St Maarten FBO up and running as soon as possible. This in turn will further assist the handling and relief missions wishing to enter the area.
A delegation of 7 staff members headed by Patrick Hansen is onboard. The aircraft departed Luxembourg Findel Airport at 07:00 hrs CEST heading towards St. John‘s International Airport, in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. After a fuelstop, the team will carry on directly down to Princess Juliana International Airport on the Caribbean island of Saint Martin. They are expected to land at 12:40 hrs LT (GMT -4).
The aircraft is taking food, water, power generating units, medical supplies, essential personal hygiene products and baby care products.
The aircraft can be tracked here, but keep in mind that the Transatlantic part of the journey will be untrackable as it is out of range from standard radar signals. As soon as it get closer to landing it can be tracked again. LINK: HERE
More updates to follow once the aircraft has arrived at its destination and a stable network has been established.
