Making a Difference: Korean Air Providing Relief Goods to Northern Peru

Korean Air is providing relief goods to those affected by the recent floods and mud slides in Northern Peru, which have killed dozens of people and displaced many thousands in recent weeks.

Goods delivered to the country include 9,000 litres of water and 2 tonnes of rescue equipment.

As the only airline operating a regular cargo service to Peru’s capital city Lima from Korea, Korean Air will utilize its cargo planes in support of the aid and rescue program to flood-stricken areas.

The emergency supplies, including 6,000 bottles of mineral water, were loaded onto Korean Air’s flight KE273, which departed at 22:05 on 12 April 2017 from South Korea’s Incheon Airport, bound for Lima, Peru.

Last month’s massive floods and landslides caused by “El Nino Costero” have ravaged the South American country, destroying more than 100,000 homes, 200 bridges and countless roads. Over 90 people have died, 122,000 have lost their homes and 700,000 are affected.

Korean Air also carried out humanitarian aid following the devastation caused by cyclone “Winston” in Fiji and donated relief supplies to those affected by the earthquakes in Kathmandu, Nepal and Kumamoto, Japan over the past years.
