A Boeing 747-400 freighter operated by British cargo airline CargoLogicAir left East Midlands Airport yesterday carrying 110 tonnes of goods on behalf of the UK government to support the more than 1,000 British troops and government support staff now helping to deal with the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean.

The flight to Barbados’ Grantley Adams International Airport was organised by UK charter broker, Air Charter Service (ACS). Onboard the CargoLogicAir aircraft were 70 tonnes of bottled water and 40 tonnes of ready-to-eat meals for UK troops.
