Tropic Ocean Airways has been collecting donations and utilizing their entire fleet of aircraft for relief efforts in areas devastated by Hurricane Joaquin in the southern islands of the Bahamas.
Tropic Ocean Airways team on the ground in George Town, Great Exuma is working closely with the Bahamian Government, Local Authorities, Palm Beach County All Hazards Incident Management Team (IMT), Red Cross and Pathfinder Task Force to get supplies out to those who need them most.
Since the weekend the airline has been able to deliver over 30,000 pounds of supplies to command tents set up by the Bahamian Government in Georgetown, Bahamas. Once in Georgetown the supplies are then disseminated out to multiple locations within the affected area utilizing a mix of wheeled aircraft and seaplanes.
