United Nations Express Great Satisfaction with DAC Aviation

DPKO (created in 1948) provides political and executive direction around the world and maintains contact with the Security Council, troop and financial contributors, and parties to the conflict in the implementation of Security Council mandates. A UN peacekeeping operation consists of military, police and civilian personnel, who work to deliver security, political and early peace building support.

AMISOM (African Union Mission in Somalia) is mandated to conduct Peace Support Operations in Somalia to stabilize the situation in the country in order to create conditions for the conduct of Humanitarian activities and an immediate take over by the United Nations (UN).

The United Nations Support Office for AMISOM (UNSOA) is a field support operation led by the United Nations Department of Field Support (DFS). UN Security Council Resolution 1863 (2009) provides UNSOA with a mandate to deliver a logistics capacity support package to AMISOM.

In that context, DAC Aviation (EA) Limited has been contracted since January 18th 2013, to provide air support to UNSOA/ AMISOM, with a 50 seat aircraft, 5Y-MOC (Dash 8-315) for 2 years. After a few weeks of operation, the UNSOA already expressed their great satisfaction with DAC Aviation’s performance and professionalism.

We are very pleased to inform, Captain Charlesworth Hunte, David Kinuthia (F/o), Anastasia Wanjau (Cabin Crew), Giorgio Lucarrini (Engineer) & George Nyandeje (Ops Officer), that they have been appointed “Employee of Month” to thank them for their outstanding work.
