[Avionics Today 08-18-2016] Boeing and Thailand’s Low-Cost Carrier (LCC) Nok Air have partnered to launch a special humanitarian aid mission to Thailand. With the help of the international non-profit organization Vital Voices, whose mission is to invest in and empower women leaders, the airline's Boeing 737-800NG will transport and deliver just fewer than 30 boxes full of relief items, including clothes and school supplies.
The items are 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. Representatives from ACT will deliver the aid to impacted children and youth throughout Thailand.
Nok Air currently has two additional next-generation 737s on order with Boeing after this delivery. The airline is also a 737 MAX customer with eight 737 MAX 8 airplanes on order.
