MIAMI — Boeing and Thailand’s low-cost carrier (LCC) Nok Air have embarked on a special humanitarian aid mission.
The airline’s 22nd 737-800 (Fah Kram • HS-DBW • MSN 61296 • LN 6030) delivered today will transport about 30 boxes of relief items, including clothing and school supplies headed to The Children’s Advocacy Center Thailand (ACT), a non-profit organization dedicated to better the lives of abused children and youth in Thailand.
The mission was arranged between Nok Air, Boeing and Vital Voices, an American international non-profit, non-governmental organization, whose mission is to invest in and empower women leaders.
“We are honored to play an important role for the well-being of our children and youth,” said Nok Air’s CEO Patee Sarasin. “Providing timely supplies to those in need will affect the lives of many in the region. Nok Air is proud to continue playing a vital role in cultivating the well-being of our community.”
Based in Bangkok’s Don Mueang International Airport, Nok Air operates a fleet mainly comprised by 189-seat Next-Generation 737 aircraft, which serve 24 domestic routes within Thailand and four international destinations. The carrier is also a 737 MAX customer, with eight 737 MAX 8 aircraft on order.
