World Food Programme chartered passenger flights are now operating between the capitals of Senegal and Guinea Bissau, the UN agency said in a weekly report received by IRIN today.
WFP said it had contracted Aeroservice, a Dakar based company, to make the twice-weekly runs: Dakar (Senegal)/Bafata/Bissau/Bafata (Guinea Bissau)/Dakar. WFP said the service would benefit UN agencies, NGO’s and donors. WFP prepares the passenger manifest and issues plane tickets.
